City of Sturgis to fund building of more non-motorized trails
News Staff - April 9, 2018

STURGIS, SD - The City of Sturgis is announcing plans for the construction and subsequent maintenance of approximately 15 miles of non-motorized trails on the Black Hills National Forest.

The proposed trails would form a multiple-loop trail network in the area of Vanocker Canyon, Deadman Mountain and Veteran’s Peak south of Sturgis. The trail network would link into already constructed trails on City of Sturgis property around the Sturgis Reservoirs and would also link into the existing Centennial trail, which is administered by the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management.

Construction and maintenance of the trails will be funded by the City of Sturgis under a special use agreement with the Forest Service. Others involved in the effort include Black Hills Trails and the Bureau of Land Management. TThe completed trails would be open to hikers, runners, mountain bikers and horseback riders.

Environmental review of the proposed trail network is under way, with a final decision expected in the fall of 2018. Information on the project can be found online at https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=47768 or by contacting Chris Stores at the Northern Hills Ranger District office at 605-642-4622.

A public open house is scheduled for April 18, 2018, from 4:00-6:00 PM at the Sturgis Community Center for those interested in learning more about the proposed project. Forest Service and City of Sturgis officials will be available to answer questions about the proposal.
