Falls - Black Hills
Roughlock Falls Map
Roughlock Falls is one of the most beautiful locations in the Black
Hills. Water from springs upstream in Little Spearfish Creek cascade
down the falls. The surrounding limestone cliffs embrace the canyon
and give it an ancient look. The stream is usually exceptionally clear.
Wild brown trout dart in an out of the shadows. And it is snowed in
during the depths of winter.
You can get there on 14A coming from near either Sturgis or Spearfish.
The turnoff from Spearfish Canyon to get to the falls is at Savoy. When
you get to the Latchstring Inn on the east, or Spearfish Canyon Lodge
on the west, you're near the turnoff. It's gravel road for a couple
miles to Roughlock Falls.
- Aspen and birch
trees grow all around in Spearfish Canyon and near the falls. They
turn yellow in autumn, usually the first week in October. The coniferous
trees are either ponderosa pine or Black Hills spruce.

- Bridal Veil Falls, flows off the canyon walls between Savoy and
- Eagle Cliff
Cross Country Ski Area lies further up near O'Neil Pass.
- A scenic hiking
trail edges along the stream from Spearfish Canyon up to Roughlock
Falls. It's an easy walk.
- Another trail
starts at Latchstring Inn and goes down toward Spearfish Creek.
