“Spectacular Scenery”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

This is a "must" for any visitors to the Black Hills. It is a nice easy drive with great scenery. The fall colors should make it even better.

“Pretty Waterfalls”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Neat area with two different waterfalls. Roughlock Falls is more impressive than Bridal Veil, but both are very easy to get to. The Dancing With The Wolves film site is just a sign in a field. Go for the waterfalls alone if you’re in the area.

“Very scenic.”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We enjoyed our drive through this area. The roads were not too winding & we went on a great hike to the Roughlock Falls.

“Gorgeous”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

I have taken this road many times and I think starting at Cheyenne Crossing and traveling towards Spearfish is a better way to go.The Canyon walls get taller as you continue and then you end up at Spearfish. A quick left takes you right into Historic Main Street. Yes this is a beautiful drive but equally gorgeous is Vanocker Canyon, taking you to Nemo, hit the saloon for a cold one (tree growing in the bar) you catch that drive in Sturgis. Enjoy!
