This boardwalk trail ends at the Window, a viewpoint of “the Wall” and the pinnacles and spires that make the Badlands so famous.

THE NOTCH TRAIL

If you do one hike in the park, this is the one you should do. The Notch Trail is our favorite of the bunch and it is one of the best hikes in Badlands National Park.
