The Black Hills park says the two 11-person Student Conservation Association crews each spent three weeks working and camping there.

They installed 116 wooden posts marking around 4 1/2 miles of the Highland Creek and Centennial trails.

There are now more than 30 miles of hiking trails available for exploring the park's backcountry.
