BRIDLE TRAILS ASSOCIATION
Download the NSBTA Newsletter here. Hope you like it! We only publish the Newsletter every couple of years but stay tuned for the 2017 edition. Also, in past newsletters I have written “virtual trail rides” as an idea to help you figure out exactly where your membership dollars have been spent. The “rides” have also been helpful to those who don’t know where some of the NSBTA trails are, especially new members. It’s also more fun than just reporting trail work. We have re-printed past “virtual rides” and they are available for download here, for those of you who haven’t seen them. As we explain different areas where we have been working, you will have an easier time picturing the locations. Some of the information is a little outdated now as trail accesses change, people move and new trails are cut. As always, feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.

The North Salem Bridle Trails Association maintains and develops the historic system of trails which extends and connects more than one hundred miles of trails in the towns of North Salem and Ridgefield, CT. The NSBTA works to stimulate the interest of the community in the preservation of “horse country” and of our unique rural character. We enjoy some of the most beautiful trails in the eastern United States.
It’s that time of year when the conditions of our trails can be good or terrible. All it takes is a day or two of dramatic temperature shifts. We are there now. Everything is really wet and it hasn’t been cold enough to firm things up. Please use your judgement as we do not want to make any of our landowners unhappy, including the North Salem Open Land Foundation. If you are at all uncertain, please just ride on the dirt roads. Thanks!
*** NSOLF has just informed us that the Baxter Road, North and South parcels, are closed to riders until the land dries out ***
Only by including in its membership all persons who use the trails can NSBTA effectively communicate its goals and fund the necessary equipment and personnel to maintain the trails. Our continued success in these endeavors and the maintenance of the trail network is dependent upon your financial support.Click here to BECOME A MEMBER
