Thanks to region-wide efforts by BETA staff, trail adopters and volunteers, all networks are in great shape. It's only May - you should still expect to come across occasional wet spots and perpetually troublesome soft sections, especially after the rain predicted for this weekend. And although the trails are riding well, there is plenty of work to be done. Keep an eye on our communications for opportunities to give back starting THIS Sunday at Mount Pisgah from 9AM-3PM. Dig. Ride. Grill. Come for some, or all. Registration strongly encouraged.
🤘 The long awaited Blue Ribbon (Flow Trail) on Scott's Cobble is now open. BETA staff and volunteers put in a solid shift Thursday night fixing berms and ruts and raking and removing loose rocks. Thanks for your patience on this one - it's a bit slower to dry out.
🤘Cinderella Story is open again from the driving range trailhead on Rte. 86. Please follow the red signs and markers through the area impacted. The logging activity addressed risks to power loss and threats to irrigation for the Lake Placid Club Golf Courses. BETA was able to work with the Lussi family to identify a solution to restore access to the trails as safely and quickly as possible. Remember that all Lussi Trails are on private land and access is a privilege.
🤘In case you missed it, a generous donor has offered to match donations to Phase 2 of East Branch up to $5000! Thank you to all (31 of you so far!) who've already taken advantage of this opportunity! The matching campaign ends May 29th. Double your impact today. Every dollar helps. www.betatrails.org/keene
⚠️ Fowlers parking at Route 86 is closed due to rail trail construction. We are working with DEC to identify alternative parking and access points for Fowlers trails while the rail trail construction is underway this year.
Wherever you're riding this weekend, think of the trail organizations, the volunteers, the landowners and all of the partners and people making it possible for you to walk out of work and hike, run or ride into the woods. #ridewithgratitude
