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.

This is a ride to be sure to make while in South Dakota. Beautiful twisty roads, with Bridal Veils Falls as a fantastic stopping/viewing spot between Spearfish and Deadwood.

This drive is spectacular, a scenic byway winding though high cliffs covered with aspen. Amazing in the fall, but all year round it is beautiful. Don't misst Roughlock Falls or Spearfish Falls in Savoy. Bridal Veil; Falls is nothing to write home about but good for pictures.

What a great place for photos in the canyon and from beginning to end was out of this world. The tour covered everything

What a wonderful place to ride. I think I may come back sometime when it's not a giant rally. The irony of having that many bikes around makes the riding less enjoyable. The views though, worth it.

The canyon is pretty, but there are many trail heads along the way. I think those are the real highlights. Plus, Bridal Veil Falls.
