The best snowmobiling in the Northeast is right here in Old Forge/Inlet, no wonder it’s called the Snowmobile Capital of the East! Over 500 Miles of groomed snowmobile trails twist through majestic forests and frozen  tundra’s, creating a breathtaking blanketed panorama of nature at its finest…


Here’s why:

1.) Breathtaking scenery – Riders get to see places you otherwise couldn’t access or see other times of the year. The Adirondacks turns into a Winter Wonderland!

2.) The Trail system is well marked and connects with all major snowmobile trail systems in Central and Upstate New York. 500 miles of trails are maintained every day with two shifts of grooming to ensure top conditions. Trails are good, even on busier weekends!

3.) Lake effect snow drops bands of the white stuff often! Old Forge has an average annual snowfall of 177.3 inches, which is 692% more than the national average. This is more annual snow fall than Alaska!


4.) Make it a weekend adventure, with the vast number of places to stay. From Guest rooms and Luxury Suites at Water’s Edge Inn to heated Cabins and Cottages at Old Forge Camping Resort and everything in between, there is a variety of accommodations available in Old Forge. Both accommodations offer winter stay ‘n play specials, trailer parking and direct access to the snowmobile trail system and non-ethanol gasoline 24/7!ofcr snowmobile

5.) There are tons of places to eat & drink, whether you travel to Old Forge, Inlet, Big Moose, or Stillwater. Start off with breakfast from Walt’s Diner, the 2016 winner for people’s choice for Best Breakfast from Adirondack Life Magazine and enjoy a midday bite & drink from Daiker’s on 4th Lake, and end the day with pizza and wings from Screamen’ Eagle in Inlet. – you can’t wrong

6.) Variety of riding conditions – trails, roads, lakes, (we do not suggest or recommend riding the lakes.)

7.) Different Day trips by snowmobile allow you to ride for several days and never do the same thing twice. Consider a ride to Stillwater or Raquette Lake by snowmobile.

8.) Away from the city, but not that far, in fact it’s only 200 miles from most major cities in New York, New Jersey and Ontario, Canada.

9.) Having problems with your ride? All major sled brands have shops within 15 minutes of Old Forge! 

10.) It’s a social thing: The snowmobiling community is great – tons of opportunity to meet new friends that all share the love of snowmobiling!
