    Falmouth (ME) improvements?

    I know they crushed fund raising in the fall. Anyone ridden there? Where did they make improvements?

    Maine Trail Builders has been working there for the last month, but I havenít seen any announcements about anything being finished yet.

    Here's a link to GPNEMBA, they could provide answers I bet: https://www.nemba.org/chapters/gpnemba

    Here's their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/gpnemba/

    I'm in central Maine but don't get down that way much.

    They are currently building a new machine built climbing trail at Blackstrap, but it's not done yet. Probably not too far off though, it's visible near the top at this point.

    Nice! That hill needs a better way up.

    Can confirm they did an EXCELLENT job....did 11 miles and 1500 feet of vert with WAY less effort due to the new escalator trail. They've really made blackstrap a lot more accessible to people with the mellow switchback climb.

    Finally open, then! Sweet.

    I also saw there's a new section going in next to the "blue all the way" or whatever it's called snowmobile trail up towards blackstrap road.

    Psyched to check this out. Only ridden there once for limited time but it was obvious there was great potential. We got rained out a couple weekends ago.
