Trail closure signs posted prematurely.

We all know that we are losing access to the original white trail alignment for the section between the tower and the CCC forest road.  (If not, read all about it).

As you recall, the old trail would remain shared use until the replacement trail is complete, but we had to finish the replacement by the end of 2014.  We had 4 work days in the spring to partially clear the corridor, and have six days scheduled this fall to complete the trail.

We have contacted the DEC to remove these signs until the replacement trail is complete. (Update: DEC has removed them for this section of trail).

Please make an effort to make one or more of the work days this fall so we can complete the trail.

The replacement trail has been designed to be bigger (longer) and better than the old trail, so please respect the closure when it comes into effect later this year, and help ride in the new route and make it the best around.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
