NSBTA & Landowners Working Together

Willow Farm had allowed an access to NSBTA members next to their paddocks for many years but the section was quite wet.  Horses were damaging their property and they closed the trail.  We worked with them to find a new area where we could build a trail and it’s finished.  Many thanks to them for being flexible allowing NSBTA to find a solution!

New Trails

Working with and coordinating five landowners, we have cleared a new trail that goes from Three-Phase Equestrian center, behind the landowners’ properties and connects with the NSOLF Gaymark Preserve.  Trail markers are in place.  It’s a beautiful loop.
Another great trail will help out our southern neighbors near Grants Corners.  You can now cross over to the west side of June Road and head back to connect with our Turkey Hill trails.  All the new farms on Grant Road now have access without having to spend any time on busy roads.

 

White Barn – Now “Avalon Farm”

ATTENTION ALL RIDERS: The NSBTA has removed this property from our trail system. If you would like to ride through, you must ask for and receive specific permission from the owners. It is accessed from Dingle Ridge Road. If you have any questions, please email info@nsbta.org.

 

Vail Lane – Stanton’s Property

The Stanton Property on Vail Lane is under new ownership. NSBTA riders are the only ones allowed to ride on the paths around the fields and on the trails in the woods. No walkers. The new owners are adamant about no one on foot with or without dogs. It is private property and they only allow riders.

North Salem Vineyards

As some of you may know, the old North Salem Vineyard property has recently changed hands. For the first time in years, NSBTA riders are allowed on some of their trails. The property has a new road/track that goes around the perimeter. NSBTA riders are only allowed to ride on clearly marked sections of this path. There are trail markers as well as signs showing where riders are allowed. PLEASE stay on the marked trails!!! Any questions,  email info@nsbta.org. Thanks!

 

Attention Riders!

Please understand that if a landowner has a sign that says “Access By Invitation Only” then you are not allowed to ride there! The only exception being if you have been given specific permission from the landowner directly or if it says that NSBTA riders are allowed. If you have any doubt, please stay off the trail and contact us with any questions.

 

New Trail Section

NSBTA and GBH have opened up a large section of one of the old trail systems. The easiest way to access this area is from Joe Bohrdrum Park. There is a very large parking lot which makes this a nice trailer destination. Once you are tacked up and ready to go, proceed down the gravel service road that bisects the park and head northeast into the woods. The trails are not well marked yet but we are working on it. Eventually, we hope to clear the trails that meander along the ridge, parallel to Rt. 116, and connect to our trails in the orchards and Audubon.

On the other side of the park, cross the road (Sunset Drive) and proceed south for about 50 yards until you see the NSBTA trail marker. Head into the woods. In this area the trails are well marked. It is a network that winds through the woods behind the nursing home and ends up in back of the restaurant, Farmer and the Fish.
