With over 540 miles of groomed trails, it is no wonder that Oneida County has the largest number of snowmobile club members in the state. The geographic diversity of Oneida County adds to the reason why riding here is so popular. It is located in the central portion of New York State, east of Syracuse, and west of Albany. Oneida Lake is on the northwestern corner of the county, and the Adirondack Park is on the northeast. Part of the Tug Hill Plateau is in the northern part of the county.

Interestingly, Oneida County's highest point does not lie on either the plateau nor in the Adirondack Park, but in the county's southern extremity, between the villages of Waterville and Cassville. The Erie Canal bisects the county. You wanted variety? You got it!

A myriad of diversions appeal to riders in Oneida County. Riders can choose from more than 300 local attractions including restaurants, museums, casinos, breweries, and exciting events!
