ATIS Bridges out

1. Starting today, June 1, the ATIS bridge below the Lower Ausable Lake dam will be out of service due to the need to rebuild the 80-year-old stone piers. The complete project may take as long as a month. Meanwhile, access Sawteeth, Gothics via Pyramid, and Rainbow Falls via the Beaver Meadow and West River trails.

2. The bridge on the Elk Lake-Marcy Trail that crosses the inlet to the Upper Ausable Lake is out. Replacement may not happen until next year. A somewhat shallower ford is found a few yards upstream.

I've had some people ask about the ford on the Elk Lake-Marcy trail; how difficult is it?

Unless it has rained recently, there is an easy ford about 100 yds upstream from the bridge. The trail bends toward that ford after the now washed-out bridge, so it is easy to regain the trail after the ford.

Maybe a few extra people will discover the beauty of Beaver Meadow Falls....

Repaving on Rt 28 with one lane closed and a long wait while the other side passes. Not just once but several times.
