Trails maintained by the Forest Preserve Users Snowmobile Club

C7D, 23 miles, Class A - is already an established trail that is heavily traveled. This trail connects into the Canadarago Snow Toppers trail at the Montgomery / Herkimer County line and runs Northeast through the Village of Fort Plain (where food and gas is available) and connects into the Ful-Mont Snow Travelers trail at the Palatine / Mohawk Town line. This trail is a vital as it links points south of the Mohawk River to the north side as this is one of only 3 river crossings in Montgomery County. FPUI is currently re-aligning this trail in the Hallsville area due to landowner issues. No negative impact on opening this trail in the 2007/2008 season is expected.

C7H, 22 miles, Class A - is already an established trail that also sees heavy usage. This trail connects into trail C7D at the western end of Montgomery County and passes through the Village of Ames (where food available) and connects into the Sharon Pathfinders trail at the Montgomery / Schoharie County line. A new bridge is planned on being installed this fall so it is ready for the 2007/2008 season.

C7P(Canal Trail), 25 miles, Class A - Runs East to West through Montgomery County from the Hamlet of Randall where it connects from the Town of Florida Snowmobile Club trail West to the Shumaker Mt. Climbers trail at the Montgomery / Herkimer County line. This trail currently has an 11 mile bypass around the Southern perimeter of the Village of Canajoharie. The FPUI club is petitioning the Village of Canajoharie to allow snowmobiles to enter into the village limits on the east and west ends where food and gas would be available. This action would not eliminate the southern bypass as there is no feasible means to continue the trail through the village. No trail changes are expected.

S72, 7 miles, Class A is already an established trail that connects trail C7H from the Hamlet of Carlisle to the Town of Florida Snowmobile Club S72 trail in the Town of Glen. No trail changes are expected.

S72A, 3 miles, Class A is already an established trail that connects trail C7P from the Hamlet of Sprakers to C7H in the Hamlet of Carlisle which also provides access to S72 and points south and east on the trail system. No trail changes are expected.

S73, 9 miles, Class A - This trail runs South and West from C7H near the hamlet of Sprout Brook where food is available and connects into the Canadarago Snow Toppers trail in the hamlet of Salt Springville. No trail changes are expected.

S75, 6 miles, Class A This trail connects to the Ful-Mont Snow Travelers S75 maintained trail and also provides access to food, gas, and automotive/snowmobile services in the Village of Palatine Bridge. No trail changes are expected to this trail.

S75A, 4 miles, Class A - This trail is a needed spur off of S75 trail to access food, gas, and automotive/snowmobile services in the Village of Palatine Bridge. No changes are expected.

S78B, 6 miles, Class A - This trail connects to the Shumaker Mt. Climbers trail at the Montgomery / Herkimer County line to corridor trail C7D in the Town of Minden then heads North to the Village of St. Johnsville where food and gas is available. This trail will eventually continue Northwest through the Village of St. Johnsville where it will connect into the Oppenheim Snowmobile club corridor trail C8A. FPUI club hopes to have this trail completed in the 07/08 season and would like to see funding for this trail. A possible trail number for this trail could be a continuation of S78B. No other changes are expected.

FPUI club has had a trail that runs from the C7H trail south through the hamlet of Buel to the Sharon Pathfinders club for the past three years. This trail is currently shown on the FPUI produced map as S74. We (FPUI) would like to see funding for this trail which connects C7P to C7H then continues south to the Sharon Pathfinders trail. This trail gets very heavy use due to the fact that there is gas and food available in both Sharon Springs and Cherry Valley. We (FPUI) already maintain this trail to Class A standards and would like to see funding for this trail in the 07/08 season.

All trails maintained by the Forest Preserve Users snowmobile club are either Class A Corridor or Class A Secondary.
