Trail Conditions

Friday, March 12th – 
We beat last year. Last year we pushed banks back on February 28th – so we got MORE
time in 2021 – so that’s a win. 

No grooming happening this weekend in Long Lake or Raquette Lake.

Spring conditions prevail with ice base/cover on most trails . While there is snow is in the woods along wooded trails, there is a hard ice base.

Roads and shelves have been pushed back in Long Lake along Sabattis & North Point. While interior wooded trails are still rideable, expect hard packed icy trails and you need to trailer to them as our roads and connections are in rough shape. Last groom was on Monday, March 8th. We lost snowpack in the woods. Raquette Lake reports glare ice except for the bare spots.

We thank all of our crews, and riders and restaurants and services for keeping our season going in 2021. We eeked out 7 weekends of solid winter conditions this year, during a global pandemic and we thank you for your continued support!

Technically our trails and gates remain open and our machines are still ready in case we get some kind of crazy blizzard snow dump between now and April 1st!


Thursday March 11th
Update 3:30pm –
Sabattis Road is now … a ride at your own risk. Roads are essentially bare.  Shelf has been pushed back and is dirt and mixed conditions. Not much snow is left after this midweek warmup. Thank you to Hamilton County 
Highway for their support of the shelf this season. North Point has taken a beating and likely mostly bare, … thinned out and took a hit in the warm up. Going to be icy on any road side trails. 

Interior woods trails are still good riding. Riders along the S80 -power line trail yesterday reported excellent conditions and great spring sledding day. We still have shelf along North Point Road connecting to Forked Lake Road.  Today weather looks good for some riding. Riders were seen in and around town today.  While today looks to be warm, we look to have some winter weather returning Friday and Saturday so the groomers will be back out working it.  Trailer parking available at NYS Route 30 North in between Sabattis Circle Roads – hop on that to head south along C7B to enjoy wooded Tupper Trail and link up to Lake Eaton trails. Still some beautiful days to be had. 

Mon March 8th

Snowmobile Trails are open. We still have winter and ample snowpack in woods. Groomer was out on the Newcomb Trail C7B earlier today, flattening it out.  While we do anticipate mid-week warm up, it will not likely do too much harm for the base and – winter will return for the weekend and groomers will be out.

Look for icy conditions on the shoulders. Sabattis Road shoulder/roadway will be snow and ice covered. Throughout the week the shelf will be getting worked on and flattened out and still accessible via the tracks and C7 and C7B. Crews will leave ample snow on sides of roads while they work. Use caution, icy base, ,spring like conditions will pre-dominate during Wed/Thurs. 

North Point Shelf is in tact and rideable, Forked Lake Trail is good. Expect hills to have some bumps and eastern side of hillsides to be thin and icy where exposed to afternoon sun.

Safe riding, take your time! 


Sun March 7th

Sunday March 7th. Groomers hitting C7B Newcomb Trail this morning. C7B Sabattis Shelf groomed all the way out to the tracks today. Head out today before there is no more shelf. Due to impending thaw we anticipate the shelf will be dismantled this week due to warm up.

Report of trees down on Raquette Lake 7th Lake Mountain Trail.

Fri March 5

Friday, March 5th. This morning groomers are back after an overnight run. We have freshly groomed trails out along the C7B John Dillon Park out to Sabattis Shelf to the Tracks. Tonight we will groom C7B Tupper Trail to Kickerville and S86 Lake Eaton Trail. We also have groomer heading out to C7B Newcomb Trail all the way out to Forked and back and along North Point Road Shelf. Get out an ride this weekend! You’ll be glad you did because next week is looking warm! Raquette Trails are good to go.

Wayne says on Raquette Lake Trails: Stay on the trail… the deer are in the trail, so be careful!  

Wed, March 3

Wed March 3rd Groomer report.
C7B Tupper Trail groomed 3/3 Wed Morning and S86 Lake Eaton groomed Wed 3/3 early Wed morning. C7B Sabattis shelf and C7B Northern section of Tupper Trail was groomed Tuesday morning.

C7B Newcomb Trail – also a community connector trail. – was groomed on Tuesday and Wed. 2 to 3 inches of fresh snow from Pickwicket all the way to Newcomb line. Maybe 2 inches in 6 Mile section of trail and 1 inch of snow behind Transfer Station. Trail is definitely smoother today and was way more enjoyable than yesterday. Use caution with ice on hills and particularly with hill in the Pickwicket section of the trail near stream. Take your time with spring conditions. There will be hidden ice.

S80 Powerline groomed on Wed 3/3. Town to Emerson Road – good. One inch of fresh snow. Section from Route 30/Blue Line to North Point -is fair – expect some bumps. But it was groomed on Wed 3/3.

The Town of Long Lake grooms the Town of Long Lake Trails and always prioritizes their limited resources and grooms primary corridors first and secondary corridors second. All trails north of bridge are now groomed and reporting excellent conditions. 

Tuesday March 2nd
March came in like a Lion! Temps dropped and we received about an inch of fresh dry powder overnight, along with gusty winds and about an inch of dry snow. Norridgewok/BRASS fixed the groomer and groomed the tracks north to Sabattis Station last night. Groomers were out on Tupper Trail/Sabattis Shelf last night/early this morning along C7B.

C7B Newcomb trail 1/2 inch of snow on 1 to 12 inches of ice hard pack. Mostly settled flat with natural setting bumps here and there. There was 3 or 4 trees down. Some small limbs here and there. For the most part the trail is ok no major wash outs and ditches are still holding up.

Powerline S80 – 1st half to Emerson still beautiful 2nd half very rough to North Point and most hill parts are icy. Maybe only 1/2inch of snow on the hard pack.

Tonight I am going to drag Newcomb to smooth it out and also drag second half of S80 Powerline.

Expect roads & sidewalks to be bare, but shelves still holding up. Ice base so take your time. Woods will be good condition with a decent base still in place, but with heavy winds last night, expect there to be branches and limbs down. Use caution.

Monday March 1:
I can’t believe it’s March already! 

Tonight Norridegwok is back out on their groomer hitting the tracks north to Sabattis. Long Lake will be hitting C7B from John Dillon Park out to Sabattis – and grooming along the shelf so should be good to go tomorrow.  Groomer will be hitting Newcomb Trail C7B.  Tonight we have super duper cold temps which will freeze everything up – but groomers are going out the freeze up to flatten everything out before it turns into a hardpack.  We will be grooming again all week long. We have spring like conditions on the roads.  Ride the shelves – we have shelves on North Point and Sabattis and on area local roads, but the roads are dirt, grateful to have those shelves.  Special shout out to Johnny & Hamilton County and Chip and LL Highway & Michael & Tim in Raquette for keeping our banks and shelves alive! 

Sunday Feb 28th:
Temps hovering around 35. With rainfall last night, the roads and sidewalks are bare, but shelves are still rideable, but expect “springlike” conditions. Due to the warm up groomers are on pause until temps drop again and snow flies again tomorrow.  So trails in the woods will be fine, we just had some light rain, so we still have a base holding – just need to get to the other side of the weather and get out when the temps drop again. More snow coming on Monday to help cover up the dirt.  We will keep on grooming well into March. We often see some of the biggest snowfalls of the year in March so.. stay tuned! 

Saturday Feb 27:
Erik groomed C7B Newcomb Trail over night. Some dirt in corners and flattened out the Friday afternoon moguls. Snow expected this morning, but as of this keyboard tapping right now.. I see nothing.. . Get out early before the warm up later this afternoon after 2pm.

2nd Update 8:31am – Tupper Trail C7B is freshly groomed this Sat -morning after yesterdays big riding day. Interior trails from Kickerville Road to Number 5 road are all excellent, but please note: the side of route 30 is bumpy and there is ice underneath. Use caution With warm up today and into next week that will transition, but prepare your back for some bumps along route 30 today and probably going to see bumps on Sabattis shelf – it was groomed Friday, but we just can’t do both the Tupper Trail and Sabattis Shelf in the same day.. we know its annoying, but it is reality.  We have two machines, two guys and they both are currently in bed, sleeping after coming in off the trail. 

Friday 2/26 – C7B Newcomb Trail groomed this morning. C7B Sabattis Trail groomed this morning. S80 North Point Road was shelved yesterday, and C7B Tupper Trail S86 Lake Eaton Trails groomed on Thusday – all are in good condition with 8 inches base and 1 inch of fresh snow cover. C7B Newcomb Trail was also groomed yesterday, there was dirt poking thru in sections and lots of tree branches on trail due to high winds on Wed/Thursday overnight, but with 1 inch of fresh snow, all trails should be good to go with excellent base. Raquette Lake reports in all trails are smooth. Road sides along Tarbell, Rice and Kickerville will be cut today. Expect bumps as weather warms up tomorrow (Sat) Today, Fri 2/26 Weather Sun and clouds mixed. High 32F. Winds WSW at 5 to 10 mph. Expect roadsides and sidewalk connectors to get bare and beaten down throughout the weekend.

Thurs Feb 24th
Today groomers are hitting the Newcomb Trail C7B, and S86 Lake Eaton Loops.
Ham Co Highway is shelfing and cleaning up and flattening out S80 roadside on North Point Road. Tomorrow we hit Newcomb Trail again, Sabattis Shelf and Forked. It was warm yesterday, but then we got about 1 inch of snow overnight. 

Raquette Lake Trail report: Trails are smooth. 

Wed Feb 24th
Today, we are grooming S80 Power Line and doing routine groomer maintenance and oil changes.  Weather conditions: We see a warm up so groomers will head out late night/early morning when temps can hold and set. 

Grooming Plan for the weekend: Thursday morning we will see grooming on the banks on S86 North Point Road & Newcomb Trail.  Look for C7B Newcomb Trail to Forked Lake to be groomed on Friday.  Look for another pass on the Newcomb Trail on Saturday and if the weather holds up, we’ll get him back out to Forked.

Thursday look for grooming S86  -Lake Eaton Trail and on Friday the Sabattis Shelf C7B will be groomed.  

Tues Feb 23
More snow fell today.  C7B Sabattis Road Shelf was groomed this morning (Tues) and will be groomed again on Friday.  All other trails were holding today to give our groomer a day off (first one in over 7 days – I think he deserves it) He’ll be back out tomorrow. 

Raquette Lake Trails are good. Wayne told me so. 


Mon Feb 22.
C7B Newcomb Trail groomed this (Mon) morning, expect bumps along section behind the LL Transfer Station towards Newcomb direction and some dirt showing. S86 Lake Eaton Loop good and C7B Tupper Trail good to number 5 groomed this morning. Sabattis Road shelf will be groomed tomorrow (Tuesday). Today Sabattis Road Shelf is bumpy from weekend ride.

Sunday, February 21, 2021

Trail Conditions Sun Feb 21, 2021. 1-2 inches of fresh snow fell over night. Trails were groomed overnight to clean up from the weekend traffic. Today the C7B Tupper Trail is freshly groomed as well as the C7B Newcomb Trail stretching to the S80 Power Line out to S80 North Point Road. Expect bumps along Sabattis Road Shelf. Lake Eaton loops trails are good today.

Trails at 5:30pm. It was a busy day today. Thanks for coming.  C7B Newcomb Trail is rough. It will be groomed again tomorrow. S80 North Point is rough post Saturday riding.  Vehicle is currently stuck on Forked Lake Road – use caution – hopefully it will be moved sooner than later..** Pending updates. 

Saturday 2/20/21. C7 Tupper Trail from Kickerville to Number 5 road groomed this morning. Good to great with 1 inch of fresh snow.  S80 North Point and Forked Lake and RL Spur trail linking to North Point (aka the Goat Path) also groomed this morning with 1 inch of fresh snow and good condition.  Expect bumps/moguls to form during the day, especially on the Newcomb Trail C7B behind the Long Lake Transfer Station and Sabattis shelf especially in pockets where the sun hits it. Reminder, the Newcomb Trail C7B was groomed on Friday as was Sabattis – this means, expect with volume of traffic expect bumps on these sections of trails. Raquette Lake Trails are good. Get it in while you can! Winter doesn’t last forever! 

Friday 2/19/21. Long Lake/Raquette Lake Grooming update. 8- 9 inch base with 1 inch of fresh snow cover. More light snow expected overnight into Saturday up to an inch.

C7B Sabattis Road Shelf groomed today. C7B Tupper Trail holding up well after yesterday’s groom- trails good to great conditions. C7B Newcomb Trail groomed this morning, Opie came home and was so wiped out he went to bed for a nap before he could get me an update! He’ll be back out in the morning on S80 North Point Road & Forked. LL Highway took care of the shoulders on Tarbell Hill, Dock Road, Rice Road and Kickerville. Raquette Lake reports excellent conditions including the length of Uncas. 7th Lake Mt was groomed yesterday (Thurs) Great to have snow, should be great riding this weekend. So much better than last year… it’s hard to keep up. While this is the Moonlighter’s reporting out trail conditions, the trails are groomed by the Town of Long Lake.

Raquette Lake Trails update: Wayne says “There are bunny rabbits all over the place making zig zag tracks all over my trail. I wish I had that much energy”  


Thursday Feb 18th. Trails are holding up pretty well with 8 inch base with a few inches of snow slated to fall tonight. Just be aware there are definitely going to be some icy conditions on turns, in corners and there is a layer of ice under the surface of many sections of the trails, so “you will feel everything” Pack some extra cushions. S80 North Point was groomed again this morning. The RL Spur Trail down to Raquette Lake also fondly called “the goat path” was groomed, but it’s pretty soft and will have more bumps before too long. Did two passes on it to knock down the moguls. Forked Lake Road groomed this morning. North Point pretty good today after a second run at it and the groomer almost getting stuck in a ditch yesterday. Be cautious as as there is deep snow in pockets along the roadside in the ditches, so stay on the trail/shelf and reduce speed as needed. C7B Tupper Trail was groomed today. Conditions are good, with some pockets of ice in corners, thin snow and then snow in the ditches. Expecting 1-2 inches of snow in the overnight hours into Friday.

Grooming Equipment and Management of Trail Systems:

The Town of Long Lake manages the trails in Long Lake & Raquette Lake. 

There are three pisten bully groomers –

2 in Long Lake
1 in Raquette Lake
2 snowmobiles in Raquette Lake with drags 
1 snowmobile in Long Lake with a drag –

We move the equipment around depending on conditions. If equipment breaks down and is unavailable to do it’s normal “routine” we will put an alert on our trail conditions page if it impacts our trails.  But often times we are able to secure help or use alternative equipment to adjust if things aren’t working

Why are the trails not better marked with signage?  If you see a specific area needing signage, please let us know. We can’t fix it if we don’t know. We have two crew in Long Lake and one in Raquette Lake. They are in charge of brushing, grooming, maintaining their trails, but it is always appreciated to have input. Don’t complain, volunteer! We’d love to have you.  Please email  This is a great way to give back to your community and support your local trail system.  

The Town of Long Lake works with the Long Lake Highway Department in both Long Lake & Raquette Lake, and our Hamilton County Highway Department to help with all the roadsides and shelfing area roads.

Partnerships with other communities
We also have been rescued in emergencies, by the generosity of Newcomb’s trail groomer. The Town of Newcomb has always helped us out when needed and we appreciate the community shared services in emergencies and we would do the same for them.

The Inlet Barnstormers groom wooded trails around Raquette Lake including the 8th Lake & Bug Lake Trail and the continuation of the 7th Lake Mt. Trail and into the Moose River Plains.

The Beaver River Association grooms for Long Lake on the train tracks from Sabattis south for 12 miles.

Lots of coordination pulls all of this together in the Parks & Rec upstairs office. So there’s that to look after for over 70 miles of trails in our two communities. And grooming operations go on 7 days a week in the winter months.

Our trails are on LAND not Lakes. 

Thank you to our snowmobile partners who help keep our roadways open for snowmobile traffic this season. Special thanks to our highway department for filling in thin spots along area roadways.  

Long Lake Highway will be cutting banks  Owls Head Lane, Tarbell Hill, Dock Road & Kickerville Road. 

Hamilton County Highway crews will be cutting banks on North Point and Sabattis Road and they are doing a great job working with our crew!  Thank you. 


We do NOT recommend riding on lakes.  Our groomed trail system does NOT CROSS LAKES.  Lakes are NOT part of our trail system.  

Thanks to Inlet Barnstormers for their work on the Bug Lake Trail and other trails connecting to Raquette Lake Trail System.

See map for numbered parking lots.

1.      Park on NYS Route 30 Snowmobile Parking Lot.  Take NYS Route 30 road side – it’s 4-6 feet wide ice and snow on the road sides.  Cross NYS Route 30 into Number 5 Road and travel along GREAT snowmobile / freshly flat groomed trails on Friday March 23.  Take this trail to Lake Eaton Campsite- take the campsite loop and head back out to get your car, or ride around the backside of Lake Eaton to Owls Head.  See map for exact details.  

2.     Park your trailer at Lake Eaton Campsite Entrance or in the inside of Lake Eaton (near the boat launch) to hop on a freshly groomed interior wooded trail around Lake Eaton.  You can also hop onto the C7B Tupper Trail heading north to the Number 5 Road or loop in towards Kickerville.  Please use caution on road sides.  We’ve left some snow – but it’s heavily traveled and can be hit or miss on the road sides.  Interior wooded trails are holding up.

3.     Park at the Owls Head Trail Head Parking Lot off of Endion Road in Long Lake NY.  Follow shoulder / road until you hang a right to access S86 – the backside of Lake Eaton Trail.  Take the backside all the way through to the Lake Eaton Campground, loop around.  There are two options that take you through the campground and get you turned around and back on the loop to get you back to your car. 

4.     Park at the NYS Northville Placid Trail Head on NYS Route 28N and Tarbell Hill Road.  Access C7B Newcomb Trail here.  Groomed and flat, great condition until you get to Pickwacket Pond.  But still a great ride. 

5.     Park at the NYS Boat Launch off of Dock Road in Long Lake to access spur trail to connect to Jim Bird Road/Tarbell Hill Road and the Newcomb Trail. Please note:  Trail is excellent until you hit Pickwacket Pond near the County Line – then expect spring conditions. But just turn around and come back to Long Lake.

6.     Park at the bottom lot of Mt. Sabattis and head up past the Ice Skating Rink to access S80 – The Power Line Trail.  This trail is flat and has seen very little traffic this week, so it’s a best bet.  Snap a picture of Long Lake from the Mt. Sabattis Pavilion.  You’ll have to turn around and head back into town before hitting North Point Road.  You can ride shoulders on North Point Road and visit Buttermilk Falls.  Leave your sleds in the parking area as the small path to the falls – is just that, a foot path.  Short hike to catch in the beauty of this scenic treasure.

7.     Municipal lot in Long Lake.  Free parking at the site of the old Highway Garage on Main St. Long Lake.  You can ride shoulders and sidewalks – but they are pretty bare at this point.  But this can get you into the center of town.  Stewart’s Shops is the place for Gasoline, so expect some scratchy road riding to access gas.
