PIERRE – South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) officials want to remind snowmobilers that trail cameras offer a visual aid for current trail conditions across the state.
Trail cameras are located at Hardy Station, Savoy and the Kirk trailhead in the Black Hills. East River trails are utilizing four of South Dakota Department of Transportation’s (DOT) road conditions cameras. Those cameras are located at the junction of Highways 34 and 37 east of Forestburg, Highway 14 east of Cavour, Highway 81 south of Arlington, the junction of Highways 20 and 25 west of Wallace and the junction of Highways 10 and 25 at Lake City.
“We are excited to offer the trail cameras,” said Ryan Raynor, GFP snowmobile trails coordinator. “Oftentimes, areas like Rapid City or Sturgis may not be seeing snow, while the higher elevations are good for riding. The cameras are a great way to show people current conditions.”
