Badlands National Park in South Dakota features dramatic landscapes that span layered rock formations, steep canyons, and towering spires. Bison, bighorn sheep, and prairie dogs inhabit its sprawling grasslands. The Badlands Loop Road (Highway 240) winds past scenic lookouts. Several trails begin near the Ben Reifel Visitor Center. The Fossil Exhibit Trail is a boardwalk with displays on fossils uncovered in the park.
