PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard has awarded nearly $1 million in Recreational Trails Program funding to cities, state parks and the Black Hills National Forest.

Daugaard says he’s happy to be able to award the grants to project sponsors across the state. Awards to cities ranged from $9,750 for Claremont to $112,000 for Hurley.

The federal program offers up to 80 percent reimbursement for maintenance and development projects related to trails.

Areas including the Big Sioux Recreation Area Trail, George S. Mickelson Trail, Black Hills Snowmobile Trail System and Spearfish Falls Trail, among others, also got grants for trail improvement projects.

Daugaard says the efforts will benefit South Dakota’s future generations.
