TRAIL UPDATE: After some confusion with Land First NY, Kevin's Trail is now Re-Opened until the club hears otherwise. Land First NY does not own the land at this time, and has no say on the trail. The club was mis-informed.
Yamaha Trail remains closed.
Oswego County ATV Club - Altmar, New York
Welcome to the internet home of the Oswego County ATV Club. We are a club of individuals
dedicated to giving its members a good, legal place to ride in Upstate New York.
The over 100 miles of trails consist of mainly low effort, family oriented trails.
There are some mud bog areas, woods, fields, railroad beds, bridges and small hills
to climb. There are picnic spots with tables and shelter. All of the trails are
environmentally friendly and we take great measures to ensure they stay that way.
We welcome ATVs and utility machines. Our club is family oriented, and our riders
ride safely and respectfully.
The membership cost is listed on the membership form. A membership runs for the
calenday year and trails are open from April 15th through September 30th, conditions
Maps are available at the Altmar Hotel or the Altmar Union Station store in Altmar.
Club members can buy fuel, park and off-loading right at the store.
The other location to find our maps is thru our membership person, Becky Hilton.
She is at every function and brings plenty of maps with her. Sorry, we do not mail
Our trails are designed for riding on, not racing on. No excessive speed and stickers
must be on the front driver’s side of the machine.
Stay on trails means, stay on trails or stay home. Do not bypass our bridges and
stream crossings by going up and down streams or mud holes.
Do not go around wet holes and make them bigger, it causes more work and expense.
If you do not want your machine to get muddy then it is best to keep it in the garage.
You must try to make work details or work at fund raisers such as Rodeo, Trade Show,
Pig Roast etc.
You will be responsible for at least one club raffle ticket a year, maybe two. Buy
them or sell them.
It is your duty as a Club Member to report any other rider that is not obeying the
Club rules and State laws.
It is your duty to help keep our trails clean and safe. If you see debris on our
trail, such as cans, bottles, cig. packs, etc., pick them up. Report any unsafe
conditions to the Board or line officers, such as Beaver Dams, Flooding, Wash Outs,
Fallen Trees, etc.
Those that do not go by the rules will be brought in front of the Board. Depending
upon the seriousness or the amount of violations, you may be barred from the club.
Loud, tuned or modified exhaust will not be allowed in residential areas such as,
Public roads, churches, villages and private homes and camps. State law requires
