Freeze/Thaw Cycle Reminders

Posted on Posted in Blog
Freeze/Thaw Cycle Reminders:
1) Avoid trails if too muddy
2) If icy, please wear traction on your shoes or have studded tires on your bike.
3) Please avoid making trails wider or short-cutting trails.
4) Go out before trails get muddy, earlier in day or later in the day.

Read our updated Trail Use Tips and be a good little trail user: http://batsvt.org/trails/trail-use-tips/
Note: Carriage Trail gets VERY soggy after a rain or thaw cycle since it’s at the bottom of the hillside. Please avoid using it if it looks gross (IE: the seasonal stream, or spring are present, and or there are puddles a small dog could float in- someday we hope address the drainage we can “control”)!
