About the Delaware Valley Ridge Riders

The Delaware Valley Ridge Riders were founded in the late 1960's in Delaware County. We are proud members of the New York State Snowmobile Association (NYSSA). Delaware County is a host for over 350 miles of New York State corridor trails, and our club maintains over 70 of these trails!

Visit Our Trails

Our club is a steward for two New York State parks; Delaware Wild Forest (Campbell Mountain) and the Bear Spring Mountain Game Management. Trail C2 will lead you through both of these parks with numerous secondary trails for your touring enjoyment.


Bear Spring Mountain is one of the best kept secrets in the Catskill Forest Preserve. It is typical for these trails to have a snow depth of at least 18-25 inches, even when there is no snow at lower elevations. The trails on Bear Spring Mountain will have you riding through the scenic Catskills at an elevation of 2,600 feet! This area is a snowmobile haven, sometimes referred to as a "Mini Tug Hill". These trails are very wide, full of adventure, and very well maintained by our club volunteers. While you are here, please be sure to sign in at the brown boxes in the State Parks!

So, What Are You Waiting For?

The town of Downsville provides gas, food, lodging, and services to connector trails and neighboring clubs. We hold several club events throughout the season, including club rides, poker runs, and snow drag races. After a long day of riding our trails, why wouldn't you want to stay a while longer?!

Special Announcements

Class of 2018 - DVRR Scholarship

Congratulations to the Class of 2018 recipient of the DVRR Scholarship. This was awarded to Downsville Central School graduate, Lucas Elmore. Lucas is a huge help to our club year after year. He participates in trail cleaning, grooming, and fundraising. He goes above and beyond with anything we ask him to do to help our club. Thank you, Lucas! We are proud of you and wish you the best of luck in all of your future endeavors! THINK SNOW!

NOISE AND SAFETY CONTROL

Please be sure to follow the rules and regulations of the trails. Landowner complaints and loud exhausts on sleds can ruin riding for everyone! Please be sure to be respectful of all trails and laws - We need mutual respect with our landowners in order to keep building up our trail system!

Respect Laws and Landowners

We Need Your Help!

Our trails don't maintain themselves!


Thanks to the help of our club's volunteers, we have amazing trails here in the Catskills. They work year-round to clean trails, put up signs, and build bridges. Our club can use all of the help we can get! If you are interested in getting involved with trail maintenance, e-mail us at DVRRSnowClub@gmail.com for more information. Support your sport, and take pride in knowing that you have helped your club maintain these amazing snowmobile routes!


BREAKER BRIGADE:

If you are interested in breaking trails after heavy snowfall, this would be a huge help to our club’s groomers! If your group of riders has been out/plans on going out to break trails, please email Tom and Dayette (two of our awesome grooming volunteers), at snomoette@citlink.net. Let them know when and where there will be a group breaking trails. If there are major issues, please let them know which trails need heavy clearing, and the club will schedule a work bee. If there are small branches in the way, please safely remove them. By breaking trails for our small groomer, everyone can enjoy them sooner once they are groomed. Thank you for your help!
