Spearfish Falls Trail is found just behind the Latchstring Restaurant parking lot, about thirteen miles into Spearfish Canyon driving from Spearfish. The entire hike is less than a mile and is a very easy hike.
The Spearfish Falls Trail begins with the beautiful Botanical Gardens of Spearfish Canyon. An information booth sits in grass around the Latchstring Restaurant parking lot and will give you general directions for your hiking needs.
The Botanical Gardens host so much of the beauty within Spearfish Canyon and posts are located throughout Spearfish Falls Trail that tell you about what is growing around you and some little known facts about the area.
This hike is very shaded and can be very cool in the Spring and Fall months. A clearing at the floor of the hike hosts several benches and is a perfect photo opp. The waterfall at the base has found its place in thousands of travel photo albums, as well as in many magazine articles depicting Spearfish Canyon.
