“Pretty Waterfalls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Neat area with two different waterfalls. Roughlock Falls is more impressive than Bridal Veil, but both are very easy to get to. The Dancing With The Wolves film site is just a sign in a field. Go for the waterfalls alone if you’re in the area.

“Very scenic.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We enjoyed our drive through this area. The roads were not too winding & we went on a great hike to the Roughlock Falls.

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

I have taken this road many times and I think starting at Cheyenne Crossing and traveling towards Spearfish is a better way to go.The Canyon walls get taller as you continue and then you end up at Spearfish. A quick left takes you right into Historic Main Street. Yes this is a beautiful drive but equally gorgeous is Vanocker Canyon, taking you to Nemo, hit the saloon for a cold one (tree growing in the bar) you catch that drive in Sturgis. Enjoy!

“One of the best rides in the Black Hills”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

We love riding Spearfish Canyon and quite often turn around and go back through depending on traffic. So many palces to stop and take pictures or just enjoy the view.
