Spearfish Canyon is one of the oldest and most miraculous canyons in the United States. Located in the northern Black Hills of South Dakota, the canyon stretches for nearly 20 miles along a scenic and unique State and National Scenic Byway. Less than a mile wide, the canyon is always ‘close and upward’ dwarfing the one-million annual visitors who come to enjoy it.
