Riding is a PRIVILEGE.
Please keep in mind as the riding season gets off to a late start:
that the use of most trails across New York State are a ‘privilege & NOT a right’!
- This applies to the various easement agreements established by the DEC across timber properties that often have lease agreements with private user groups.
- This applies to the farmers who have agreed to travel corridors through their croplands – which are their livelihoods.
- This applies to the vast number of private landowners with whom Clubs work diligently to secure their consent.
- This applies to municipalities who grant permission for snowmobilers to travel over seasonal roadways.
Etc., etc., etc…
