Cedar Pass, Badlands National Park

Badlands National Park is a short drive from The Black Hills.

When coming from the Black Hills, The Traveling Morgans recommend you approach from the south (SD Highway 44) so you can see "the wall" that gave Wall SD its name. Coming in the Cedar Pass Entrance, you will find yourself face to face with "The Wall" and the road climbing up Cedar Pass.

A good Badlands Map is provided by BlackHillsBadlands.Com.

Cliffs are quite steep. The Badlands are soft and the cliffs are not safe to climb.
