Black Hills Forest Advisory Board-Help Needed!

April 20, 2017

Hello BHMBA supporters and followers - we need your help!

As you are all well aware, we have been put on hold for adding legacy trails such as Victoria, Storm and Shanks to be recognized trails with the Black Hills National Forest because they did not have a framework for deciding if we need (and can maintain) more trails. The first step in getting these trails approved is to let the National Forest Advisory Board (NFAB) know what you want to see done with your forest by completing the survey below. This survey is open to all ranger districts of the Black Hills so your reply doe not have to be limited to just the Mystic Ranger District.

Please take the time to complete the survey thoughtfully and then share it with your friends, family and coworkers that utilize the Black Hills National Forest in a non-motorized way. If your favorite trails are not system trails (can't be found on a FS Publication) then let them know! Thanks for helping out - every response counts!
