This scenic 19-mile drive in the Black Hills that passes cliffs, waterfalls and the Spearfish Creek gives one the feeling they are in the rainforest.

We drove through here in our RV and it was beautiful. We hiked the Roughlock Trail which was amazing! There is an easier short hike from a close parking lot. We chose to park farther back and hike. It took about 1 hour.

Once your enter the canyon, you will be amazed at every turn, anytime of the year. From the fall colors, to the well maintained winter roads to budding spring to warm summer, you will remember this drive for a long time. Gorgeous!

Vistas galore including Bridal Veil Falls. The drive is filled with great view after great view. There are plenty of places to pull over. We even had a picnic 30 yards off a pullout. The pace is relaxed and a great place to unwind.

The temperature is always a good 10-20 degrees cooler once you get into Spearfish Canyon. A truly beautiful place.

Absolutely! Because this is a popular area for tourists, the roads are wide enough to accommodate a large size RV, even on the curves.

No worries. The road is on the bottom of the canyon with beautiful walls on each side of the road. No scary drop-offs.
