Waterfalls of Spearfish Canyon

The waterfalls of Spearfish Canyon make for some of the most iconic and stunning landscapes available in the Black Hills. We will photograph two of the three major waterfalls in the Canyon, Roughlock Falls and Spearfish Falls. Surrounded by fall color (cross your fingers!), these make for stunning subjects.

Type: Outdoor Workshop

Activity Level:  Moderate. Light hiking to photo locations on uneven terrain is necessary but car access is good to most locations. Spearfish Falls requires a short hike down a steep, but well maintained trail and Roughlock trail is concrete paved and steep in places but with handrails and a viewing platform at the end.

Things to know:

What to bring:  Lenses from wide angle to telephoto and a tripod would come in very handy, especially in the low light levels in the morning.  A polarizer will come in VERY handy for removing reflections from the water and richening fall foliage.
