Experience

This trail is named for only getting one hour of sunlight per day, but don’t let that deter you. This trail is a difficult trail that requires good shoes. The trail includes amazing scenery with plenty of climbing through & up rocks. In the winter months the trail has amazing ice formations which are a local favorite to capture in photos.

Directions

  • From Spearfish, take Spearfish Canyon Rd until just before two large rocks nicknamed “Kissing Rocks” or “Dice,” near mile marker 20.
  • The parking area which is very limited is on the left. Take the unmarked trail on the right side of the road.

    This is a nice short hike. I liked that you had to climb on rocks. Looking forward to seeing it in the winter with ice.

    Really short, but some interesting things to see. Pair it with a hike up the 76 trail to cool off after!

    Plan to get top but couldn’t because of very dangerous icy to climb up and very slides. The icy is block and in the way. So will come back to finish it.

    Wow, what a challenging hike! If you consider yourself to be in decent shape, adventurous, have decent navigating skills/tuition, and shoes with great traction – this hike is for you! I would not take children under 16 or dogs on this one.

    Gorgeous! Don’t look to this one for a good workout unless you’re going rock climbing, but the easy access and incredible beauty make this one worth the stop.
