The Bureau of Land Management, in collaboration with Black Hills area nonprofit Black Hills Trails have put together a tentative schedule for the remaining work to be done before commissioning the new 7th Cavalry Trail System on the Fort Meade Recreation Area. The remaining work will likely entail thousands of volunteer hours throughout 2016, but the good news is signage will be placed on all trails in the new trail network in 2016. This will be a major boon for visitors to the area, as currently to make use of these trails a person must do some of their own way-finding or find a guide that is knowledgeable of the area.
The new Trail System reconstruction work includes rebuilding several major sections of the iconic Trail #89, or Centennial Trail, which is the best known and probably the most used trail in the Black Hills region.
