Thanks to an exceptional volunteer group of trail riders, trail maintenance has been occurring on the trail system on a regular basis to make the trails sustainable as well as assisting the city with the installation of trail directional signs. This volunteer group has given countless hours of service to the park.
Lighting the Tunnel
In 2016 the Leadership Spearfish Class of 2016 took on a project to light the tunnel that leads from the Nevada Street Trailhead parking lot under the interstate and onto Lookout Mountain. This was a cooperative project with support from and partnerships with:
Black Hills Energy
Butte Electric Cooperative
City of Spearfish
South Dakota Department of Transportation
Spearfish Area Community Foundation
Enjoy Lookout Mountain Park and remember to yield to others in the park.
In 2015 the City completed the trailhead parking lot at Nevada and 10th Street. In 2017, the trailhead kiosk was finished. The Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Department is currently working with user groups to update the trail map and implement trail signage.
