Opening Saturday May 23rd

We are excited to announce that the SCATV trails will be OPEN this Saturday May 23rd.

A lot has gone in to making this happen with hard work by our special volunteers and to the conversations and coordination with local and state offices.

We ask that Riders please follow CDC guidelines, Ride with people you feel safe with, Do not gather in groups larger than 10 people, maintain 6 ft of physical distancing and Ride within your skill set to minimize risk to our First Responders and medical resources.

Since we will not be able to put on our annual June clean up event we’d like to encourage you to pick up as you ride by providing trash bags at Burger King parking lot. Each full bag can be left at the Cat Hole landing where the bags will be collected.

Parking Alert:

Burger King Parking: Park in the lot at the back of the restaurant. Overflow parking is available on the Exit side of the business. DO NOT park in the lot on the Entrance side between BK and Cumberland Farms. Please refer to the picture below.
