This is an easy, short trail through ponderosa, aspen and spruce which follows Spearfish Creek along the bottom of Spearfish Canyon. An awesome little trail with a view of the canyon and falls.

Directions

  • In Spearfish, from Colorado Blvd., take Spearfish Canyon Rd (Hwy 14A) for 13.2 miles, until you reach the Latchstring Restaurant. Park at the Latchstring. Just behind the restaurant is the start to the trail.

    Really close to roughlock Falls. Beautiful waterfall and when you get done you can go up and have lunch at the restaurant on top of the hill with a beautiful view.

    This is a sweet easy trail. In the winter the trees are pretty covered in snow and the falls are beautiful partially frozen.

    Glad to see this trail opened back up. There is still some cleanup that needs done along the trail but otherwise it is a great trail to do with kids!
