Oneida County ATV trails are officially open
Updated Fri., 5/11 – The Oneida County Funded ATV Trail System (as administered by the Oneida County Forestry, Land and Recreation Department) is now open for the 2012 season. The trails opened as of noon on Friday, May 11.
As always, the Oneida County Forestry, Land and Recreation Department recommends staying on clearly marked trails. Always exercise caution when riding an ATV. The trails can be in rough, early season condition. Always remember to obey all signs and regulations.
