    1. Surprisingly Chimney Rock isn’t particularly visible (if at all) from outside the badlands area and no one in their right mind would try and take a wagon or whatever through the badlands when there is a very easy route along the Yellowstone River just to the south. Interestingly though there is a butte towards the edge of the badlands that is visible from a ways away and is reasonably accessible. Some of Custer’s men climbed the butte and carved their initials in the rocks there shortly before their demise on the Little Bighorn River.
