Super cool! The hike was was fun and scenic and the Falls were really cool! I just wish there was a way to get a little closer or to the base of the falls.

Enjoyable trails are well maintained and offer great views of the falls and surrounding areas. Lots of variety. Some of the trails get a bit steep so go at your own pace.

we walk through the trail from Spearfish Canyon lodge to the Roughlock falls, you can see some flowers in summer time, and there is a bridge on a pond, the scenery is quite beautiful, I saw some a couple come here for taking wedding photos. There are several information board along the trail, so you can know more about the area. When near the falls, there are wooden boardwalk, and there are 2 observation points (upper and lower) for you to see the falls, it's a nice walk in good weather, but if you don't walk, you can drive the dirt road to the falls directly,
