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.
