Mileage: Approximately 50 miles
Time: 2.5 hrs
Description: This is probably the most scenic ride in the Black Hills area. It includes: Bridal Veil Falls, Spearfish Falls, Little Crow Peak, Homestake Gold Mine, Black Hills Mining Museum, The Hippie Hole and the “must see” Devils Bathtub.
From Spearfish take 14A south
From Sturgis take I90 to 85 south to 14A
From Rapid City: take I90 to 85 south to 14A
From Wyoming: take 85 north to 14A.
Best thing about this ride: The ride has astonishing views of epic cliffs, glimmering streams and tumbling waterfalls. The roads have long sweeping curves which allow for a slow scenic trip through this natural wonder.
What else to look out for: At Savoy (Spearfish Canyon Lodge) take 222 S about 1 mile to Roughlock Falls. The road is dirt so be careful, but this hidden gem is worth the ride.
