Description & Services
Information The Beechville Lakeside Timberlea Rails to Trail Association is a volunteer organization that manages the 13km BLT Trail passing through the communities of Beechville, Lakeside, Timberlea, Hubley, and Lewis Lake. Monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month. 
Except for large machinery requirements, necessary maintenance on the 13 km trail is completed by volunteers, and mostly by BLT directors. Volunteers are also on the trail after major storms, cutting branches where necessary and repairing washouts. Picking up garbage, emptying garbage cans, removal of the garbage and supplying doggie bags along the trail are also volunteer chores. 
More pleasant tasks include our ongoing work in erecting panels to inform our users on history and the natural surroundings. At BLT, our volunteers also organize various events for trail users throughout the year. They include Nordic walking groups, International Trails Day Celebrations, and a litter-clean up day.
Meetings 2nd Wednesday of each month
