Hoping to see you tomorrow (Saturday June 10) for our trail day work. We will see you all at the pavilion at 8:30 am. The forecast is for some chance of showers in the afternoon, you still might want to bring a raincoat. Bring if possible clipping tools. We also need a small chainsaw to cut some trees that are down on the silver and blue trails.

Thanks for volunteering everyone and we will see you on the 10th.

“Slow Down & Brake for Turtles”

Please be aware to apply special caution as turtles navigate our roads during mating/nesting season. Turtles are active now through August.

See pictures below of high risk crossing areas in addition to Ridgetop: One on Ausable Drive before Sawmill. I’ve typically seen them crossing left to right end route to Ausable Forks.


To know more about your long-lived Adirondack neighbors, please read 

And refer to for valuable education and rehabilitation information. Importantly, how to safely help a turtle cross the road and/or what to do should you hit and/or come upon an injured turtle. Turtles are incredibly resilient and recovery is possible when done in a timely manner.

Thank you!
