Very pretty walk and a very easy hike. The path is gravel and has no difficult parts to it. Lots and lots of mosquitos during the during

Super easy rolling hills well-maintained path that meanders along a beautiful stream. The falls are very cool, like Hobbit-Shire cool. We were there on a slightly rainy day so crowds were NOT an issue. I’d go again if I were in the area.

Nice easy hike. We also did the new trail, Savoy, to the ponds. I think the mileage is a bit off as it didn't seem like 4 miles.

A lot of fallen trees that block the trail. You can climb over them but these just make it more challenging. Beautiful scenery but no wildlife today

Very easy trail. Best time to hike is in the fall!

Great trail to the Spearfish Falls. Re-done. Nice easy trail. And the Falls are Great. One of my favorites.

Snow depth was amazing. NOAA stated 40"-50", I would say closer to 30"! Still a beautiful and moderately strenuous snowshoe adventure. My nephew tagged along, but doesn't own snowshoes and struggled the entire time. Plenty of great looping/crossing trails that are reasonably marked but as a first time visitor to the area, they come up a bit short. Found myself relying heavily on GPS. I suspect these trails to be much more easy to navigate without snow cover but then we wouldn't be snowshoeing. Due to the low number of reviews/photos, I did not have a high expectation for the area. However, it exceeded my expectations in accessibility and beauty. I would definitely snowshoe or hike this area again.

Nice easy trail. Very well packed and heavy traffic. There are a couple of spots you can get off the trail with snowshoes but they aren’t necessary if it hasn’t just snowed. There are a couple off shoots of the trail that looked interesting and other trails near by.

Very cool! Multiple trails that loop together. Very well marked and maps at most major intersections. Excellent snowshoe and cross country trails in winter.

Nice relaxing trail in late December. Highly recommended for all skill levels. We had snowshoes but they weren't necessary at all. Snow was packed tight due to traffic.

nice path, beautiful colors everywhere. walk next to creek to waterfall. can be busy at times.

Loved this short hike... Color is amazing at the falls! Did quite a few hikes in area and this little one was certainly one of my favorite!

Nice trail that few are using, only us and 2 mountain bikers.

A couple points had cow paths intersecting but finding the right path was not too difficult. Overall a very nice trail with gentle climb and decents. Seemed a llittle longer than the 5.8 mile with us recording about 6.8 or so.

This was an easy, mostly shaded trail. The falls were a little crowded but everyone was friendly. We were able to use our jogging stroller with a little extra navigation through some (very slight) uneven spots.

Beautiful, quick and easy hike. Trail was quite busy, but great for all skill levels. I look forward to doing it when the leaves start changing colors.

Easy with moderate traffic (we went in mid-August). Gorgeous scenery.

The multiple trails are cool, but navigating and signage are lacking. Planning to go again to go on more different trails.

Very easy and amazing scenery

My wife and I enjoyed the walk and scenery. It was an easy trail and was moderate in traffic. The two falls viewing areas were fairly crowded.

A beautiful hike, even and especially in the winter!

many trails on the main trail, we got lost at least twice, had no idea where we were because there's no service and this map helped for most of it except the last 2 miles and then when we finally got to the road we walked another mile and a half to the car.. 8.37 miles later..

Gorgeous scenery and water features, but rather busy. However, I really enjoyed it!

Beautiful hike - lovely falls - easy terrain along the Spearfish Canyon.

love the falls so beautiful

Horribly marked trail !

The water was beautiful. I would like to come back when it gets a little warmer because the whole trail was covered in ice and was more difficult than it should have been.

The trail was ok, nothing too special. It's basically a walk to the waterfall, look at it for a few minutes, then turn around and walk back kind of deal. The
