Since trails are constantly being added and expanded, it's most helpful to check out a digital, interactive map when planning your next snowmobiling excursion. The New York State Snowmobile Trails and Trip Planner includes trail systems throughout the state, and also has helpful features like gas stations, restaurants, and snowmobile sales/service businesses that you may need to locate. Use the drop-down menu to focus on the county you want to ride through.
