Beautiful area, we took the trail off of Cleopatra up to Devil's Bathtub and it was well worth the hike!

This highway near Spearfish So. Dak. is a very nice drive, especially in the fall when the leaves have changed color. There is a waterfall halfway up the canyon called Bridal Veil Falls and it looks really cool in the winter when it is frozen, and then there is a trail to hike near Savoy behind the Latchstring Restaurant with a waterfall and the trail is rough on one side when you start the hike, and better on the other side , but it is flat at the bottom, and it is not a very long hike. Then there is Roughlock Falls up about a mile or so from the Latchstring that is a beautiful waterfall, and there is a one mile trail that you can hike starting from the hotel across from the restaurant, or you can drive up to it. The rest of the canyon is also a nice drive and it takes you over to Cheyenne Crossing, where you can head back to Lead So. Dak., or go to Newcastle Wyo.
