Winding and hilly road. Interesting rock formations either side. Pleasant enough but not very special when compared to Needles Hwy or Iron Mtn Rd near Custer and Mt Rushmore. These last two are a lot more interesting for the eyes.

The Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway is a must do! Nice leisurely drive through a gorgeous scenic area. Lots of great photo spots and areas to get out and walk around!

Instead of taking the freeway from Spearfish to Deadwood/Lead take this scenic drive and stop off at the picturesque waterfalls along the way

Located just off Highway 90 in Spearfish. Easy to find, windy but nice place to drive. Different pull outs to stop and look and a Falls to see also. Worth your time to see and view Nature.

This is a beautiful trip filled with side hikes, trees and Bridal Veil Falls. There are always a number of people taking pictures at the Falls. On this day, we saw two goats on a steep cliff above the Falls. It was a fun show...More

After visiting the DC Booth Fish Hatchery we decided to visit Spearfish Canyon. What a beautiful drive. You don't want to drive to fast or you will miss something along the way.

We walked down a path to the stream below the falls. It is very shallow, so we walked across the rocks to a slightly inclined path up to the base of the falls! We stood at the base and it was awesome! We are 60 and had no... More

We tried almost the exact same trip, though we started at the western edge of Badlands NP and headed straight to Devils Tower, then back through Spearfish Canyon. Depending on when you start and how fast you drive, it is a... More
