Custer, SD – Fall colors are right around the corner and will be showing up all over the Black Hills. The Forest Service encourages you to get outdoors and enjoy one of nature’s most spectacular seasons.

“The best viewing for Fall colors on the Forest is usually late September to early October,” said Scott Jacobson, Public Affairs Officer, Black Hills National Forest.

Visit the Black Hills National Forest Fall Foliage Webpage for recommended fall color viewing areas across the Forest.

A Few Fall Driving Safety Tips:

  • Watch for wildlife. Wildlife can run along and across roadways without notice.
  • Make sure you observe the rules of the roads such as posted speed limits and no passing zones.
  • Park your vehicle in designated parking/rest areas.
  • When parking along roadways, make sure you are not impeding traffic or blocking gates.

The Black Hills National Forest hopes everyone enjoys this year’s fall color viewing.
