Our Mission

Barkeater Trails Alliance (BETA) works to develop, maintain and advocate for a diverse, sustainable and interconnected multi-use trail system suitable for mountain bikes in the Adirondack High Peaks Region.

We exist to promote the sport of mountain biking as a healthy and positive activity that compliments the outdoor culture of the Adirondack Park while providing diverse economic benefits for local communities.  


BETA is a project of the Adirondack Ski Touring Council, which was founded in 1986 for the purpose of improving and promoting cross country skiing in the Tri-Lakes Area.

Adirondack Ski Touring Council is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization, and all donations are tax deductible to the extent that the law allows.
