Snowmobiling In Lake George

The Lake George region is filled with miles of snowmobile trails! After a fresh snowfall, nothing's better than starting up your sled and taking a ride through a sparkling winter wonderland.

Lake George snowmobile trails give you the option to connect to other trail systems throughout the area and into the Adirondacks. When the ice is thick enough, 5 to 7 inches, you can even take a ride across the lake!

Below find a list of trails in the Lake George region and surrounding areas:

Since trails are constantly being added and expanded, it's most helpful to check out a digital, interactive map when planning your next snowmobiling excursion. The New York State Snowmobile Trails and Trip Planner includes trail systems throughout the state, and also has helpful features like gas stations, restaurants, and snowmobile sales/service businesses that you may need to locate. Use the drop-down menu to focus on the county you want to ride through.
