WE’RE OPEN! The trails in the banana belt of Vermont are ready to ride/hike/run! Lots of BATS folks were out this warm spring weekend enjoying the trails on Mount Anthony.
We’ve cleaned up most of the trails, done some leaf blowing, but still have a few blowdowns to clear. The mountain is surprisingly dry, but there are some muddy spots to steer clear of down low; the carriage trail is still pretty wet.
SVC TRAIL ACCESS INFO: As many of you know, Southern Vermont College is closing in a few weeks. This obviously has an impact on the BATS trails, and we will be working to try and keep public access open. In the meantime please respect the college and do not plan on parking at the Everett Mansion or the Fieldhouse lots; security has been blocking off the access road for the privacy of the students and staff. You can still access all of the trails from Southwestern Vermont Medical Center along Monument Ave or the Camelot Village parking closest to Fox Hill Drive.
As we go through these difficult times as a community, we ask for your support. Reach out and volunteer, help out on trail work days, and join as a BATS member through the Vermont Mountain Bike Association.
