Update on the trails around Beebe Lake

All trails are now reopened, except for the lakeside trail on the south and east side of Beebe Lake, east of the junction with the Cayuga Trail.

Also, the class of '59 Jogging Trail (north side of Beebe) is reopened, except for a short detour where the trail splits to the north around the 'Cowie Beds.' These trail sections remain covered in lake ice and/or were damaged by ice and flooding and will remain closed until hazards diminish and/or repairs can be made.

For reference, trail name details and maps can be found here: https://ithacatrails.org/map?trailList=Beebe%20Lake%20Natural%20Area
