The trail to the Tug Hill Hideaway is still closed and maybe
closed for at least one more month! One of our landowners had some logging done
and the skidder did a lot of damage to the landowner’s private road which is
the trail we have permission to ride on. Our land owner never thought there
would be any damage; however Mother Nature this year has given us too much
rain. The club on at least two different occasions has put closed signs and
flag rope to keep riders out!! Our
landowner has been trying to repair the damage out of his pocket however some
riders think temporary closed signs mean nothing! Someone took the signs and
flag rope down and rode on the trail and sunk to their frames. The flat
road/trail it provided was destroyed twice by the illegal riders. As if that
was not enough the riders gave the landowners representative a hard time while
they were stuck. The landowner has paid
for many hours of operation for a bulldozer to repair the damage the riders
caused. Due to our landowners understandable frustration the trail was closed permanently
for a while. WE ALMOST LOST THE USE OF
THIS PRIVATE ROAD DUE TO THESE UNAUTHORIZED RIDERS. THE CLUB AND RIDERS OWE OUR
LANDOWNER A BIG THANK YOU FOR CHANGING HIS MIND AND ALLOWING US TO REOPEN THE
TRAIL AS SOON AS IT IS RIDEABLE!!!

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.In order to ride to the Tug Hill Hideaway a County Permit is necessary.
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 do 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. The folowing businesses/areas require a Lewis County Atv Permit : Edge Hotel,Boondocks, Myers Towpath , West Wind ,going to the Brantingham area and all trails on Lewis County reforestation lands.
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.
