“Spearfish Canyon in the Fall”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Sept 14th 2012, the colors were great. I though we might have been too early, but it was great. Not a lot of water on the waterfall, but a dry year does that. Very worth it to take your time and enjoy the scenery.

“Lovely drive with waterfalls!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

This is a great scenic drive. The road winds through the canyon as a stream travels alongside the road. Very peaceful! You can see the Bridal Veil Falls from the road. The other two waterfalls are seen on short hikes. Those two waterfalls are located near the lodge that is about halfway along the road. If I remember correctly, there are signs, but I'm sure that the people at the lodge could point you in the right direction.

“nice drive”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

a nice suprise, I had not really done much research for the Spearfish area as I was concentrating more on the black hills/Rushmore. A waiter at a restaraunt suggested we drive this, and I appreciated his thoughtfulness.

“Pretty drive”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

The aspens had just started turning, but this would be a nice drive at other times, too. So much better than driving by way of I 90.

“Beautiful drive”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

We drove this route starting from Spearfish on an early Sunday morning. Unfortunately for us there was a women's marathon also happening on the route at that time, so it took away from our enjoyment as there were joggers coming towards us in small groups. They spread out over the entire route. We had to watch out for them as the road shoulders were narrow or non-existant. Otherwise, it was gorgeous with the sun and mist in the hills.
