ATV trails to close Monday, Dec. 2, for winter

Most of Oneida County’s all-terrain-vehicle trails will close over winter, the county’s forestry department announced this week.

The entire Lynne-Little Rice ATV Trail will close, as will most of the Enterprise Township ATV Trail, at 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 2.

The county routinely shuts down the trails over winter for several reasons, according to Eric Rady, the forestry department’s recreation director. 

Rady said the county receives state funding to maintain the trails only for the spring, summer and fall seasons. And, he said, use of the ATV trails drops dramatically over the winter.

Very few counties in the state keep ATV trails open during the winter, Rady said.

ATVs are not allowed on snowmobile trails, which has proved to be hazardous, according to the forestry department.

Oneida County owns about three-quarters of the property on which ATV trails are located.

The trail system is scheduled to reopen May 22, 2014.
