Savoy Trail Opens For Spearfish Canyon Hikers

A new trail is available to visitors to Spearfish Canyon, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. Savoy Trail, which was started in the fall of 2017 by the South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks, is a two-mile stretch of trail between Roughlock Falls and the Savoy Ponds in Spearfish Canyon.

Together with the Spearfish Canyon Lodge and Latchstring Restaurant and the U.S. Forest Service, the South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks allocated the land for the new trail, which follows Spearfish Creek and Highway 14A to the Savoy Ponds, free of charge for hikers and other recreationalists. The trail crosses both private property owned by Spearfish Canyon Lodge and U.S. Forest Service land and is marked as being of moderate difficulty.

South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks hopes that this trail will provide more connectivity among existing trails in Spearfish Canyon and more options for hikers visiting the area.
