The Charlton Snowmobile Club seeks to preserve and improve snowmobiling in our community. Our Club, in conjunction with the New York State Snowmobile Association and our neighboring clubs, work towards improving the trails and services for riders. We interact with our gracious landowners to ensure that our trails remain both safe and accessible to the public.
We are dedicated to providing a fun and safe environment for snowmobile enthusiasts to get together; both on the trail, and off at our various social gatherings throughout the year.
We do our part to make the New York State Trail System what it is today- miles of gorgeous, safe, and fun recreation for the whole family.

The Club was started in 1973 by a group of local snowmobiler's who wanted to build a local trail system for snowmobiler's to enjoy. This has grown from a few miles of single track trail that was maintained by a snowmobile pulling a small drag to the current day trail system of 55 miles of Class A trail that connects Saratoga County, Fulton County and Montgomery County and is maintained by:
- 2012 Kubota Tractor w/tracks pulling an 8'x12' drag
- 2009 Kubota RTV w/tracks pulling a 6'x9' drag
- 2001 Tucker 2000 pulling an 8'x16' drag (purchased in 2015)
- 2000 Skidoo Skandik pulling a 4'x6' drag.
