Spearfish Canyon Fall Foliage

Nature & Recreation Scenic Drives

Current Leaf Saturation Report:

When the colors change, the adventure and beauty heightens in Spearfish. Every September and early October, visitors from around the world come to experience the fall splendor of Spearfish Canyon. High limestone cliffs, waterfalls, towering spruces, Ponderosa pines, aspens, birches, burdocks, and box elders perfectly frame this creek carved gorge making Spearfish a truly awe-inspiring place during the autumn months.

While weather in Spearfish and the northern Black Hills is sometimes hard to predict, the color peak typically occurs during the last week of September or the first week of October.

Local resident, Jerry Boyer has provided the Spearfish community for several years with a saturation report, tracking the progression of the fall colors.
Check back in September for updates on the saturation report!
