Trail groups come together to work toward connecting communities
(Spearfish and Sturgis, SD) – The group known as Northern Hills Trails has been the lead proponent in the development of a modern stacked loop trail system for hiking and cycling on Lookout Mountain in Spearfish, SD.
Black Hills Trails has led the development of the recently completely 7th Cavalry Trail System on the Fort Meade Recreation Area in Sturgis. This trail system, designed for hiking, cycling, and horseback riding will connect to a new system south of Sturgis in the near future. This new system, the current focus of Black Hills Trails, will connect Sturgis to the serene Sturgis City Dams and to the summit of nearby Deadman Mountain.
Moving forward both organizations will be consolidating their trail advocacy efforts under the Black Hills Trails banner. Merging Northern Hills Trails into Black Hills Trails brings together a significant pool of resources, expertise, and a unified voice that will result in more and faster progress on trail projects in the Northern Black Hills in the future.
To get involved please join the Black Hills Trails email list on http://www.blackhillstrails.org/. Future news and opportunities to collaborate or volunteer will be announced on this website.
