Gradually climbing from the town of Spearfish on the northern edge of the Black Hills, this canyon is one of the gateways into towering limestone cliffs and a rushing mountain stream. Spruce, pine, aspen, birch and oak trees are along the hillsides. Spearfish Creek flows along the canyon bottom.
The first stop is Bridal Veil Falls.
A quick stop as it was right next to the road.
2nd stop we walked along Spearfish Falls Trail
Just about a 1/2 mile down the trail is the falls
3rd stop Roughlock Falls
This trail is approximately 2 miles round trip and the surroundings were stunning.
Stop 4 was a surprise on the side of the road as it wasn’t on the map. What a beautiful surprise it was.
Also on the same stretch of highway we stopped at Cheyenne Crossing store, restaurant, bed & breakfast. We had lunch and it was very, very good. I had their famous Indian tacos and Dave had pulled pork.
