ENB - Region 4 Notices

Public Notice

County: Schoharie

Lead Agency: New York Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC)

Project Title: Snowmobile Trail Relocation of Secondary Trail 75, Schoharie RA # 7, Mallet Pond State Forest

Contact Person: Robert Cross

Address: NYS DEC
65561 State Highway 10
Suite 1
Stamford NY 12167

Phone Number: (607) 652-3623

Project Location: The site is located on Schoharie RA #7, approximately 2 miles west of West Fulton in the Town of Fulton

Project Description: The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation proposes to relocate 1,780 feet of designated snowmobile trail from the NYS DEC Cemetery Road Truck Trail, to an existing logging road on DEC lands that is 1,760 feet in length. This trail re-route will shorten the trail on state land by 20 feet, take snowmobile traffic off motor vehicle roads and will put the trail through a forested section of state land, thereby eliminating potential conflicts between motor vehicles and snowmobiles. At present, a portion of the existing snowmobile trail runs along the shoulder of a plowed public highway. Moving the trail into a forested setting on state land and changing the route of the trail, will eliminate approximately 3,300 feet of plowed roads from the snowmobile trail system, and will move it away from residences along Sawyer Hollow and Cemetery Roads. The 1,780 feet of currently designated snowmobile trail on the Cemetery Road Truck Trail will be decommissioned when the trail relocation has been completed. This action is supported by the Generic Environmental Impact Statement for the State Forest Recreation Management Program and the Eminence State Forests Unit management Plan.
