Badlands trail map
Badlands National Park unfortunately doesn’t have much in the way of free trail maps available. Instead, if you plan to do a decent amount of hiking, you’ll want a National Geographic Trails Illustrated map. Not only does it show the roads and overlooks in more detail, but it also has all the hiking trails and GPS coordinates. For about $10, it’s a good investment both for safety and peace of mind.
