Long Lake Receives Snowmobile Grant

The Town of Long Lake Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department is pleased to announce the New York Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation has approved a grant to offset the cost of trail development, maintenance and grooming 70 miles of snowmobile trails in Long Lake and Raquette Lake. This year’s grant award is $43,980.

This year, $4.3 million is to be made available to municipalities for the maintenance, development and support of approximately 10,500 miles of trail throughout the state. The funding is based upon the fees collected from snowmobile registrations. If there are insufficient registrations to support the total award of funds, an adjustment to the final 30% payment will be made.

Please join the local Moonlighter’s Snowmobile Club and register your sled. Winter has arrived and the trails will be open before you know it. Gear up and get ready. Rev those engines. Safety first!

Also The Town of Long Lake has a new website – to find information on Snowmobile Trail conditions find us under What 2 Do or Calendar of Events to link to information about Snowmobile Events.
