Our Mission

Barkeater Trails Alliance (BETA) works to develop, maintain and advocate for a diverse, sustainable and interconnected system of trails for ski touring and mountain biking in the greater Adirondack High Peaks Region.

We exist to promote community-based and backcountry trails for non-motorized recreation as a healthy and positive part of the outdoor culture of the Adirondack Park which provide diverse economic and social benefits for local communities.  


In 2014 BETA combined forces with the Adirondack Ski Touring Council, and is now responsible for the continuous maintenance of over 100 miles of skiing and mountain bike trails in 6 municipalities, 2 counties and multiple Forest Preserve units.  

Adirondack Ski Touring Council, Inc. (dba. Barkeater Trails Alliance) is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization, and all donations are tax deductible to the extent that the law allows.
