Located in New York, the ATV trails in Syracuse offers more than a half-dozen beautiful ATV riding trails. The best Syracuse ATV trails based on popularity are considered to be Whispering Pines, Altmar Trails, Oswego Valley ATV Club, Winona State Forest, and Broome-Tioga Sports Center.
North of Syracuse and southeast of Altmar in Oswego County, the 8,700 acre Happy Valley Wildlife Management Area has 28 miles of ATV riding over 2,500 acres. This is easy to intermediate riding through wooded, rolling terrain. There are an additional 11 miles of trails currently under development.
West of Syracuse and southeast of Lyons, the Whispering Pines area has 20 miles of ATV trails over 1,000 acres. The trails have rolling hills, open fields, rocks and mud.
North of Syracuse in northern Oswego County and southern Jeffereson County, the Winona State Forest has nice ATV riding that connects with the Tug Hill trails.
Northwest of Syracuse in Oswego County, the Hannibal Trail is a challenging route open to ATV riding. The two-way route has some narrow turns and rocky sections. Watch out for the extreme Badlands section which is for experts only.
North of Syracuse and southeast of Altmar, the Barclay Trail is a new addition to the ATV trails maintained by the Oswego County ATV Club. A club membership is required to ride these trails. Once you have a club membership, it is very important to stay on the designated trails and do not ride on any private property.
South of Syracuse and northwest of Binghamton near Richford, the Broome-Tioga Sports Center has two tracks open to ATV racing. The first is a dirt track available in two configurations such as district races or as a national track. The second is a all-natural grass track that is typically used for grand prix style races or hare scrambles.
