Is this the time to see Spearfish Canyon’s fall colors?

SPEARFISH, S.D. — Spearfish Canyon has reached peak color change in the leaves.

Some of the golden colors that have appeared this season are now taking on an orange hue, with the bowl at Savoy and the trees behind Spearfish Canyon Lodge being obvious stunners.

Kimberly Talcott says if you drive slow, you will notice birch and aspen that seem to climb the Canyon ridges behind the Victoria Lane road sign and looking south from Kissing Rocks. From Rim Rock Lodge to Bridal Veil Falls, the woodbine is a dazzling red, latching on and ascending the Canyon’s trees.

The trees that follow along the Canyon byway have greatly progressed in their color change since earlier in the week.

Talcott also says we could still see more color emerging around the road’s borders in the coming days.
