With 450 miles of groomed trails over rolling foothills, open meadows and majestic State forestlands, Chautauqua County is a snowmobilers paradise. Trails are generally open from the third week in December to late March or even April, and groomed by members from five local clubs. These dedicated sledders cooperate with hundreds of private landowners and utilize 16 full size groomers to maintain safe and smooth riding conditions on more than 250 miles of corridor and secondary trails and 200 miles of club trails throughout Chautauqua County. Along the trailheads, service stations, restaurants and accommodations provide convenient access to amenities. Read what Snow Goer Magazine has to say about snowmobiling in Chautauqua County.

Area clubs rely on annual membership dues in order to properly maintain trail systems, and visitors to the area are welcome and encouraged to join. Contact one of the clubs listed below to purchase a county-wide trail map or to support efforts to improve snowmobiling conditions for your next snowmobiling trip. Membership in a New York based snowmobile club will save more than 50% off annual registration costs. SNOWMOBILER'S GUIDE
