Description

This is a very easy, mile-long path that starts near the Spearfish Canyon Lodge and weaves through the Roughlock Falls Nature Area. The trail parallels Little Spearfish Creek and in places skirts a dusty gravel road with little traffic. The falls are scenic and easily accessible for everyone.

There are several parking areas and access points along the length of this trail, so if you want a shorter hike, there are options.
