The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation works hard to ensure that the public has ample and safe access to recreational opportunities on our state's waterways and snowmobile trails. The agency also strives to partner with communities throughout the state to preserve, maintain and promote trail usage on all public lands.
