South Dakota Nature, Waterfalls August 25, 2018
by Annie South Dakota’s Niagara Falls Is Too Beautiful For Words
Everyone and their mother knows South Dakota for Mount Rushmore, the Black Hills, and Crazy Horse, but we locals know to keep the best things for ourselves… (Amen? Amen!) Take, for instance, our many hidden and oh-so stunning waterfalls, including this beauty that could even be compared to Niagara Falls:
Welcome to charming Spearfish; South Dakota's "Queen City" that is home to 10,500 friendly residents, a rich mining history, and...
...the incredible Spearfish Falls!
Hiding out at the base of Spearfish Canyon, Spearfish Falls is an amazing 47-foot-tall cascade that is fed by the nearby Spearfish Creek, making for both a photographer and nature lover's dream.
In addition to the falls themselves, the area is home to a must-hike trail, which spans 1.5 miles and passes not only the waters, but ample trees, wildflowers, and wildlife as well.
Access to Spearfish Falls and the
Spearfish Falls Trail can be found right behind the Latchstring Restaurant at 21046 US Hwy. 14a in Central City.
Hiking not your thing? No problem, as there is an easier way to visit the area, thanks to a 3/4-mile trail located just to the left of the Latchstring Restaurant.
Let us gaze upon these falls one last time before we take you to the map...
