Spearfish Canyon Near Savoy South Dakota is a beautiful area to explore and photograph. It’s been a year since I moved out here to the Northern Black Hills. I journey into Spearfish Canyon at least once a week. I still marvel at the beauty of this area that is just a few miles from where I live. I feel blessed to be so close to an area of such beauty.
This landscape photograph was taken near a Savoy, at a long bend in the road. On the left is a what I call a valley where you can walk down to Spearfish Falls. On the right is a restaurant and hotel, just past that is Roughlock Falls.
Spearfish Canyon South Dakota Fine Art
This is one area of Spearfish Canyon I’d want to take family or friends who were visiting. You can easily visit both Spearfish waterfall and Roughlock waterfall in an afternoon. Roughlock Falls has a hiking trail. You can walk the trail or drive up to the top of Roughlock where there is a picnic area and bathrooms. The upper Roughlock Falls path is paved and a little steep, but easy to navigate.
This area is gorgeous in the fall when the leaves change. I haven’t been a fan of winter as I’ve grown older, but I found Spearfish Canyon is absolutely stunning in winter.
