View The Jagged Rocks Of Devil’s Golf Course

This geological formation is other-worldly, with jagged salt slabs extended for miles into the horizon. The name Devils Golf Course comes from a 1930’s guidebook that stated: “Only the devil could play golf on such a surface,” and it stuck. You can walk among the rocks to explore, but be extra careful, a fall onto this surface could definitely cause some cuts and scratches.


No trail, you can walk among the jagged rocks. (Be careful)
The road to get here is dirt for about half a mile, you don’t need 4-wheel drive, but if you have a sedan drive slowly and carefully.

This stop is worthwhile. It’s a short offshoot from the main highway and the photos don’t even do it justice. This is a truly interesting sight to see. Have any other interesting facts to share about the Devil’s Golf Course? Please leave them in the comments below.

Just For Fun Park Tees

These tees are unnecessary for hiking, but it’s always fun to get a tank or tee with the National Park name on it for photos. I found these Tees on Etsy.
