SPEARFISH, S.D. — Spearfish Canyon’s fall colors are at their peak, and many of the trees haven’t yet dropped their leaves! If you haven’t made the trip to see the colors yourself, definitely make time sooner rather than later!

If you can’t make it, don’t worry – NewsCenter1’s Darsha Nelson has you covered!

Today marks Kimberly Talcott’s final Fall Color Report: 85% Color Change with moderate Leaf Drop. Talcott writes that the canyon is “still worth seeing.” The areas around Savoy continue to hold strong, with the leaf drop most noticeable around the Maurice Intake, Talcott reports. Sumac is reaching its own peak color change from Rick Rock Lodge past Bridal Veil Falls.
