Sections of Centennial Trail to close starting Wednesday, May 26
BLACK HILLS NATIONAL FOREST, S.D. — Sections of the motorized portion of the Centennial Trail between Dalton Lake and Pilot Knob will be closed beginning Wednesday, May 26, as the Black Hills National Forest and Montana Conservation Corps work on trail improvements.
Crews will work south from Dalton Lake towards Pilot Knob hauling gravel and filling in ruts on the trail.
The project may take two weeks, depending on conditions. As crews progress, different sections of trail will be temporarily closed with signage for safety.
Forest Service personnel will be on site at closed areas to direct traffic to alternative routes.
Additionally, the Centennial Trail is now open through the Sheridan Lake Road construction area, with temporary orange safety fencing in place to guide users through the area and box culvert. Dakota Point remains closed, but access to Spring Creek Trailhead to Rapid City is open.
