Famous for its beauty, Spearfish Canyon was the location for several scenes in the movie epic, “Dances With Wolves. The Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway is known for gorgeous views, water falls, steams, and thousand-foot-high limestone palisades that tower to the right and left of Highway 14A as it twists through the 19-mile gorge.!”
