My 2012 South Dakota Trip
Exploring the Black Hills of South Dakota
(You may like full size)
We hike into the Roughlock Falls area. The trail into the area starts from the parking lot of the Spearfish Canyon Lodge, and leads into another spectacular area of the Spearfish Canyon.
This stunning waterfall is one of the Black Hills most photogenic spots, which is no more than would be expected from the set of the final scenes of “Dances with Wolves”.
Clear water tumbling over limestone cliffs surrounded by birch and aspen sets the scene for this idyllic spot, perfect for a hike. Fed by Little Spearfish Creek before it enters Spearfish Canyon, this area is touted as one of the most beautiful locations in the Black Hills.
Although the water is cold, it is possible to enter the creek and even walk behind the waterfall
