The on-line MTB (Mountain Bike) Project boasts that "In the first five years, Beebe Hill has seen an eruption of well-built trails. The area has gone from 2.0 miles to 20.0 miles in that short time and is quickly becoming a destination" which Bob A. and I can attest to as parking for us, on a beautiful fall least of foliage day, was a last slot in one of two large lots to either side of County Route 5 with many mountain bikers (hikers fewer climbing to Fire Tower) all about swiftly running trails, and smaller side trails some in large groups with even one solitary biker making his way back to Harvey Mountain's parking area along a now, some of it leaf cleared, well built main line Red Trail.

A colder day and not as many hikers or bikers here today, tho a still well blazed loop!
