You can drive
through Spearfish
Canyon all 
year.
    A drive through Spearfish Canyon is one of the three great Black Hills drives. In some parts of the canyon, the rim is nearly a thousand feet above the road which runs beside Spearfish Creek. Highlights are the Bridal Veil Falls, Homestake Power Station and Roughlock Falls which are about a mile off the main road at the head of the canyon. The park at Roughlock Falls is where the last scenes in the film "Dances With Wolves" was filmed. Also, look closely for an old railroad cut that climbs high up the east canyon wall. The rock cut is 400 feet above the canyon floor.
    There are numerous pullouts along the highway for viewing and picture taking, however to take full advantage of all the views a motorcycle or convertible are good choices.
