The ATV trail system in our area (Lewis County) is a mix of
trails on privately owned land and open roads. All these types are connected to make the trail system
in the county of Lewis. There are three (3) types of trails.
Highmarket Wheelers ATV Club Inc. has trails in
the county that are privately owned, maintained and insured by the club .These
trails are attached to sections of town or county roads that are open for ATVs.
Our trail system is connected to the Lewis county permitted trails and the open
town roads. This allows all riders a larger trail system to ride on. To ride on the club trails a Lewis County Trail Permit System Permit is not necessary.However some of our trails have Lewis County Trail Permit System trails connected to our system.
The Lewis County Trail Permit System has trails
in the county that are privately owned and insured by Lewis County that are
attached to open sections of town or county roads that are open for ATVs. These
trails are primarily maintained by the county however the clubs have agreed to
help maintain the trails when they have the man power and time to so. A
Lewis County Trail Permit System permit is required to ride these trails.The county has also opened some County reforestation lands for ATV use these too require a County Trail Permit.
Some Towns on the Tug Hill and the Brantingham area have open roads not
connected by private lands that are open for ATVs. To ride on the open roads a Lewis County Trail Permit System Permit is not necessary. However some of these open roads may have Lewis County Trail Permit System trails connected to them.
We are working on a list of open ATV roads and will post it here as soon as it is completed.
