Kissing Rocks

It is rumored that two deer were killed when this rock broke lose and rolled down the mountain.  This interesting evidence of the constant erosion of the canyon.

Just across the road is Eleventh Hour Gulch, check it out you won’t be disappointed.

Continue heading to Savoy and you will find the Little Spearfish Falls Trail.  And behind the Spearfish Canyon Lodge you will find both the 76 Trail and Roughlock Trail.

The hiking options are nearly endless in Spearfish Canyon.  Get out there and explore, it is public land for the public to enjoy!

    Hi Josh

    Had a couple of questions on places to see along Spearfish Canyon. Your blog mentions Devil’s bathtub and notes to park off Cleopatra Place. Is that parking still available? Another blogger says you have to drive past that to park. And then can you give me a better idea of where MM 20 is for the 11 hour gulch? Is that after the Spearfish Falls trailhead if coming from north to south?

    When did Kissing Rocks fall? I remember them falling, but can’t remember the year. We’re having a debate on it, but no winners yet. LOL Thanks
