Trail Maps

Trail Maps are finally available.  They can be found at J&L Automotive, Witherbees, Sticks and Stones, Decesars, Flanagans, Timberwolf, Chamber of Commerce, Schroon Lake Fish and Game club ......  Maps are free this year, a couple dollar donation is fine too.  Next year we plan to sell advertising to cover costs.  Special thanks to Larry Gleason who worked with Essex County offices to convert his GPS trail data to a format that could be readied for printing.  Maps now show intersections to match up with trail markings to make trails easier to follow.

Volunteer Appreciation Social

Thanks to Sticks and Stones for the club volunteer appreciation party this past Sunday.  They invited club volunteers from the Schroon Lake - North Hudson and North Warren clubs for a couple hours of socializing.

Operating Snowmobiles in NYS

We often field the question "Who can operate a snowmobile legally in NYS?"
New York State Office of Parks and Recreation website  states that "Youth ages 14 through 17 years old may operate a snowmobile, on lands upon which snowmobiling is allowed, without adult or other supervision if they have completed a snowmobile safety training course recognized by the State of New York. If youth ages 14 through 17 years have not completed the training course, they may operate a snowmobile if accompanied by (within 500 feet of) a person who is at least 18 years of age.
Youth ages 10 through 13 may operate a snowmobile, on lands upon which snowmobiling is allowed, if they have completed a snowmobile safety training course recognized by the State of New York and are accompanied by (within 500 feet of) a person who is at least 18 years of age.
Children less than 10 years old or less than age 14 without a safety certificate may operate a snowmobile only on lands owned or leased by their parent or guardian."

Visit the NYSSA website for a detailed reference to the New York State Laws pertaining to or effecting snowmobiles, including  OPRHP Law 25.19, Operation by youthful operators.
