You can take your time on the 35.4 km (22 mile) journey, especially since the speed limit is 56 km per hour (35 mph). You'll be surrounded by more than 1,200 species of plants and animals, including almost all the species of flora and fauna in South Dakota. Canyon walls add layered hues of pink, gray, and beige, thanks to varying sediment. Take the guesswork out of planning a Spearfish vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
