The Grafton Trail Blazers Snowmobile Club is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization that maintains a 55-mile snowmobile trail system whose trails extend from the Grafton area, through the Grafton Lakes State Park, to Cherry Plains State Park. Our trail system also passes through Pittstown NY, and Brunswick, NY. On both ends of our trail system, we adjoin other snowmobile clubs also located in Rensselaer County.
Our landowners are the backbone of our organization, without them, there would be no trail system. These are the people to be celebrated for giving selflessly the generous use of their property for the enjoyment of the snowmobiling community. On behalf of all Club members and snowmobilers... THANK YOU!
