The ATV trails are maintained by the Oswego County ATV Club and 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. These rules are being strictly enforced and you WILL be ticketed. Also, local landowners are watching and reporting in an attempt to close down these trails.
