Bark Eater Trail Alliance Joins with Adirondack Ski Touring Council

this text is before the jump
Getting the low down on mountain bike trails. The Adirondack Ski Touring Council and Bark Eater Trail Alliance (BETA)  have joined forces. Now this is a union that makes sense. The Adirondack Ski Touring Council's organization of the Jackrabbit Trail continues to connect communities throughout Keene, Lake Placid, Saranac Lake and Lake Clear.

BETA added 50 miles of mountain bike trails and multi-use trails in the Wilmington, Saranac Lake and Lake Placid area. Joining the two organizations creates a four-season force for outdoor activities.

 In my latest "Rabbit Tracks" newsletter some trails have been outlined that are great for skiing and mountain biking. The Poorman's Downhill in Wilmington, a 3-mile trail near Whiteface Memorial Highway that has one entrance from Leep-Off Cycles at 5549 Rt. 86, Wilmington and the other entrance just east of the Rt 431/72 intersection. B e careful of snowmobiles in winter.

Hardy Rd (Beaver Brook Trails) consists of 7.5-miles of trails. Craig Wood Trails (a loop trail from River Rd, just before reaching the golf course.)
