Unlike other waterfalls, the Thunderhead Falls are unique because six hundred feet within the mountain, the 30 foot long fall gushes out from the wall and then again flows into the passage through the sparkling quartz vein and stalactites. It is indeed a very rare spectacle to see a waterfall gushing out with full intensity inside a mountain. Do make it a point to catch a glimpse of this miraculous phenomenon when visiting Rapid City.
