Trail C7/C4/C4A from groomer barn to West Leyden and back groomed tonight. Also C7/C7D from groomer barn to Pennystreet Road was groomed. Due to the icy hill at that point, groomer turned around and did not groom to Camroden Road. Ride safe, ride right, stay between the stakes! We already had one landowner complain about riding outside the stakes onto planted crops. Additional signage was added, but does anyone pay attention? Continued abuse will cause us to lose trails and we’ll have no trails to ride!!

Trail C7/C4 from groomer barn to West Leyden and back was groomed today. New re-route south of Vary Road is open but ride with caution as more work is needed here. Also, the new re-route on C7 going north out of Stokes near the Adirondack Machine shop has a very steep, icy hill and will be closed until a new trail eliminating this hill is built. Ride with caution since trails were late in getting ready due to the extensive re-routing.
Help with both of the above projects is needed this weekend. If available, please call Dave Seaton at 315-336-2924 or 315-335-9881.
