That picture to the left is the web cam at Holiday Valley. I use that to check to see how much snow is down in Ellicottville. I didn't have to do that today because Allegany called us to tell us that 4" of snow fell yesterday and more is on the way. We have decided to cancel the work weekend because we don't want to get a huge crew out there if we weren't going to make a lot of progress. Temps are forecast to stay below freezing through the weekend, and snow is forecast tomorrow and Sunday. So it's with a heavy heart that we are cancelling this event this year. Stay tuned for more news about getting the stone tower trail built.
Fall? It sure seems like summer! The weather lately is nicer (and warmer) than a lot of July and August. But Fall does indeed start later this week, and it is time to put out the fall schedule of work days. This warm weather can last all that long.
So far, we have work days planned at Darien Lake, Hunters Creek and Sprague Brook. We hope to add a few more dates, including possibly an Ellicottville date and another Hunters.
So far we have:
- Darien Lake Trail Building Sept. 30
- Sprague Brook Fall Day #1 Oct. 14
- Hunters Creek Oct. 21
- Sprague Brook Fall Day #2 Nov. 4
Hope to see you all there.
And what a great trail work season we have coming up. Highlights include (1) Starting trail building at Darien Lakes State Park! (2) Another trail building weekend at Allegany State Park with free cabin lodging (3) more maintenance work at Erie County forests and Cattaraugus State forests.
Hope to see you all out on the trails.
It may not feel like fall yet, but it sure is getting darker faster. That means it's time for the fall work schedule. We hope you can make it to one or two this fall. We have tried to schedule around major events, but do have one event on Oct. 8 (fall fest weekend) where we hope to have some boy scouts helping out. We have events scheduled every weekend up through November. See you on the trails!

Until today, it seemed like summer, after a slow start, was spilling right into September. So the Fall trail work season has snuck up on us. Plus, just as we were about to develop the schedule, Holiday Valley surprised us by starting the construction of the new trail formerly known as "Bell Built", and we needed to work the finish work into the schedule. But we have a bunch of dates set, and may be adding more. Please check our Trail Work Page for the latest dates.
