This is a great trail to add to your Roughlock Falls experience for those looking for more exercise. The trail consists of two loops and has an overlap with Little Spearfish Trail. If you do this trail in a figure eight it will be approximately 8 miles. You will hike along Spearfish Creek into open meadows and wind through a forest of ponderosa, aspen & birch trees. You can catch views of the limestone canyon cliffs at several spots along the trail.


  • From Spearfish, take 14A turn right on FSR 222 (road to Roughlock).
  • Trailhead will be on your left approximately 4.7 miles from turn.

    Nice nature views on the trail with butterflies, flowers, birds and few deer. Lost track of the trail in few spots but nice moderate trail to run overall. Several good trails in the area so can rotate through them. Wish there were more trail markers along the route like there are on Big Hill system.
