Join us to help build a new trail at Blueberry! On June 1 the BETA Trail Crew started work on a new single track between the Wreath and Cabin trails. The project will create another 1.5 miles of riding at Blueberry and will provide a more enjoyable climbing route from the bottom of Cabin to the bottom of Joel's (it's a pretty sweet downhill on the way out too!).

Flume Trails, Wilmington
The first official volunteer day of the season! Almost 20 people came out to help with a variety of maintenance projects on the Upper Connector trail between Whiteface and the Flume. The BETA Trail Crew followed close behind with additional improvements to the Ridge trail, just after the intersection w/ Upper Connector. Enjoy the ride!

Jackrabbit Ski Trail, McKenzie Pond Rd section, Saranac Lake
Kudos to the 15 volunteers who helped to clean up the Saranac Lake side of McKenzie Pass, one of the best ski tours around! We cleared blowdown and cleaned many critical drainage ditches between McKenzie Pond Rd and the height of land on McKenzie Pass.

Hayes Brook & Grass Pond, Paul Smiths
Thank you to the 14 volunteers who helped clear brush and blowdown on the Hays Brook and Sheep Meadow trails near Paul Smiths. Local trail adopters performed maintenance on the Grassy Pond trail this summer as well, much appreciated! BETA is working with NYSDEC, local elected officials and trail advocates in the area to find both short and long-term solutions to improve winter trail access at this and other trailheads in Franklin County where there have been plowing and parking issues.

Jackrabbit Ski Trail, McKenzie Pass section, Lake Placid
We had a fantastic socially distanced trail work today on the Jackrabbit ski trail in Lake Placid. Much appreciation for the 7 volunteers who worked in the rain to clean drainage ditches and culverts before winter At least we could see where the water is running!
This isn’t the sexiest trail work activity, but it’s critical to prevent erosion and reduce the chances of ice flows on the ski trail in winter, especially after thaw-freeze events.
