(8/30/2019) The large amount of moisture received in the Black Hills National Forest over the summer has led to adverse effects on select areas, causing the temporary closure of certain Forest Service roads, trails, boat docks, and recreational areas until normal conditions are restored. These closures are in place to ensure the safety of the public as well as protect valuable natural resources. For the latest updates on these closures, please visit the Black Hills National Forest website.
