Rising approximately 500 feet (152 meters) above the surrounding terrain, Sheep Mountain Table, topped with prairie grass, yucca and juniper trees, is a significant landmark in the Stronghold Unit (section) of the Badlands National Park. It’s reached in a 30-minute drive from the Ben Reifel Visitor Center in a section of the park contained within the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Sheep Mountain Table is also unique because it’s the only "table"(flat topped mesa) in which it's possible to drive on to its summit using a narrow, steep single lane dirt road (NOTE: normally only accessible with a high clearance, 4- or all-wheel drive vehicle). The road terminates on the summit of a prairie-grass and yucca topped summit ends at a pull-out that reveals a breathtaking 360-degree vista of the park, nearby farms and communities, and distant mountains.
