The Three Sisters Preserve in the town of Wilmington provides a key link for mountain bikers, connecting Wilmington’s downtown to the popular Hardy Road mountain biking trails. The preserve was established by the Avery family and Lake Placid Land Conservancy in 2017 before coming into the Adirondack Land Trust’s portfolio in 2023. The trail system here is maintained by the Barkeater Trails Alliance (BETA). Flobus, the downhill-only mountain biking trail they built in summer 2023, offers a progression of bumps and berms.
