Marking the 100th anniversary of statehood, 1889 to 1989, the 111-mile Centennial Trail represents the diversity of South Dakota. The Trail crosses the prairie grasslands near Bear Butte State Park and climbs into the Black Hills high country, skirting lakes and streams until it reaches Wind Cave National Park near Hot Springs. The Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, and South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks have combined their efforts to develop this Trail for you to enjoy.

Planning will help you enjoy your trip on the Centennial Trail. Find out as much as you can about the area where you plan to use the Trail. Drinking water is not readily available along the Trail. Many of the streams dry up in early
summer. Protect yourself and treat raw water taken from streams and lakes before you drink it. Many of the established campgrounds and picnic areas along the Trail have drinking water during the summer months of June, July, and August. During the rest of the year, campground water systems are turned off. Be prepared for unexpected changes in the weather, and for emergencies. Food is not readily available along the Trail. Food may be obtained from stores in the Black Hills area.
