Spearfish, South Dakota has both a unique name and setting. It is perched at the halfway point between Mount Rushmore and Devils Tower making it the perfect city base for an exploration of the highlights of South Dakota.
A visit to Mount Rushmore and the looming political faces carved into the mountain is something that everyone should do once in their lifetime. Mount Rushmore is situated just a short drive from Spearfish and the trip there and back can be made within a day.
For outdoor exploration without venturing too far afield, there are plenty of hiking trails and natural beautiful sites adjacent to the city. Bridal Veil Falls is a breathtaking 60-foot waterfall that sees the water cascading gently down a cliff face. Though hiking here is prohibited, a viewing platform allows access to the falls and the place is worth a stop by before traveling onwards. Eagle Cliff Trails and the infamous Devil's Tower are worthy activities for any South Dakota itinerary.
Those interested in hiking, nature and immersing themselves in the rural atmosphere may prefer to stay in cabins, campsites or motels outside the center of Spearfish or among the backdrop of the Black Hills. This enables a perfect location for trekking and exploring national parks and areas of scenic beauty each day.
