Bird watching is a classic pastime in Spearfish Canyon. A quote that appeared in National Geographic Magazine stated One of the most popular birding routes in the region is the Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway which runs south from Spearfish 20 miles to Cheyenne Crossing. This superb drive is very popular with non-birders too. Spearfish Canyon Lodge is abounding with a beautiful and sometimes rare assortment of birds. It is likely that you will see Bald Eagles daily on the cliffs above the Latchstring Inn, and while looking at Roughlock Falls you may run across the rare American Dipper.
