Spearfish, Sd. June 21 – For public safety, a portion of the Black Hills National Forest Centennial Trail 89, located north of Dalton Lake, will be temporarily re-routed due to logging.The re-route will follow an old section of the trail that connects with Forest Service Road 704.1A. “Please use caution on this short span of road as logging equipment may be present,” said Bonnie Jones, Northern Hills Ranger District Recreation Specialist.

Forest crews have been busy opening the re-route and clearing it of any fallen trees and debris. Signs will be posted along the re-route to guide the public. Barricades will be placed at the north end of the reroute and at the Dalton Lake Trailhead.

The trail will be closed for approximately 3 month. The public will be notified via the Black Hills National Forest website and along the trail when it reopens.
