Lookout Mountain Trail Work Volunteers Recognized

Volunteers who worked hundreds of hours maintaining the trails on Lookout Mountain were recognized by the City of Spearfish, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. Volunteers from Two Wheeler Dealer of Spearfish and the Spearfish Charter of Black Hills Trails spent approximately 400 hours working on the trail systems.

A Lookout Mountain management plan was approved in 2014 and provides clarification as to how Spearfish can update and maintain the 750 acres of the mountain. Since then, volunteers along with the Lookout Mountain Committee have mapped nearly 11 miles of trails on the property.

As part of the maintenance efforts, volunteers reshaped trails and implemented bars to control erosion in the area. Signage was posted to indicate where and how trails connect as well.
