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 the canyon several times, stopping along the way to take photos and to walk a bit on the trails to the water falls. Highly recommend.

Scenery is great - roads are great - trails are great. Get a map and pamphlet and go explore. Enjoy the outdoors - peaks, trails, gulches, waterfalls, rivers, streams, flowers. All beautiful

This area is a must see for any trip to the black hills. Lots of curves in road to get to.these areas but the sights are unforgettable. This is truly a beautiful place and will visit each and everything I'm up this way.

A drive down Spearfish canyon is a wonderful experience. The rise of the canyon walls is sheer. The creek runs clear and cold; perfect for trout

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.
