Trail shared by Jeremy Wilker

This short pedestrian trail around the Roughlock Falls Nature Area makes for a nice outing.

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 run, there are options.

Crowded and short. Not very technical, save for the ice. Seems like the nly thing open in this part of the world during this time of the year, though. 1.9mi — 0h 18m
