New Online Snowmobile Trails Map Available

The New York State Snomobile Association (NYSSA) has partnered with JIMAPCO, makers of road maps and mapping software, to provide snowmobilers with an online snowmobile trail guide. The online map was derived from the trail information provided by the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. The map includes all corridor and secondary trails funded through the NYS Snowmobile Trail Fund that have been mapped by GPS so far.
Users can zoom in on a particular area, find out the trail number designation, and see which club maintains the trail. Contact information for each club is expected to be added shortly. Since trails change frequently the map is intended for general information, not navigation. Snowmobilers should contact local clubs that maintain the trails for up-to-date paper maps.

Riders are reminded that $35 of a NYSSA club member’s snowmobile registration fee, and $90 of a non-member’s snowmobile registration fee, goes into the Snowmobile Trail Fund, most of which is then channeled back to New Yorks’s snowmobile clubs to support snowmobile trail maintenance and expansion. Some of the money is also used to provide trail law enforcement, safety education course materials for annual classes, and related projects.
