This is a ride to be sure to make while in South Dakota. Beautiful twisty roads, with Bridal Veils Falls as a fantastic stopping/viewing spot between Spearfish and Deadwood.

This drive is spectacular, a scenic byway winding though high cliffs covered with aspen. Amazing in the fall, but all year round it is beautiful. Don't misst Roughlock Falls or Spearfish Falls in Savoy. Bridal Veil; Falls is nothing to write home about but good...More

The canyon is pretty, but there are many trail heads along the way. I think those are the real highlights. Plus, Bridal Veil Falls.

Absolutely! Because this is a popular area for tourists, the roads are wide enough to accommodate a large size RV, even on the curves.
