Dramatic changes are coming to the Black Hills, and the Forest Service is taking steps to make sure you get the best possible view.
Late September to mid-October is the best time of the year to drive through Spearfish Canyon and the Black Hills National Forest. But before you hit the road, you'll want to go online or make a call.
The Forest Service has launched a color-coded map that shows you the best spots to visit.
You can also call the Fall Colors Hotline. Just dial 1-800-354-4595 to find out the best routes to take to get to see all the colors.
