Dear Prospective Club Member:
TRAILS -- The Maple Summit Snowmobilers have taken on the responsibility for creating, maintaining, and grooming the trails from County Line Road (which is the road where Seven Springs Resort's main entrance is located) to North of Ohiopyle State Park and in Ohiopyle State Park. All of the bridges, drainage, and landscaping you ride over is created and maintained by our club members at considerable cost. We spend an average of $2,000 a year on trail supplies, building materials and tools in order to clear the trails of any downed trees and brush, remove rocks, plant grass, even out rough areas of the trail caused by erosion or previous year riding and erect trail signs. This is a year-round project. While we are very grateful to Seven Springs for permission to ride on their property, they do not build or maintain the snowmobile trails. We also plan, build, and maintain the legal access trails into Tahoe Lodge and the main resort.
TRAIL INSURANCE -- Many of the
trails on which you enjoy riding pass through private property. We
have made legal agreements with the six private landowners on the trail so
that we can have a continuous snowmobile trail for everyone to enjoy. We are
very grateful to all of our landowners for this permission. The private
landowners do require us to insure them for this privilege. This year it
cost over $1,800 for this trail insurance. Maple Summit is responsible for
the entire cost. These private-land trails
connect Laurel Hill State Park, Laurel Ridge State Park, Forbes State Forest,and State Gameland 111. With access to these lands, we can legally ride from
just south of Rt. 30 to just north of Ohiopyle State Park. This gives us
over 150 miles of legal snowmobile trails! We have an excellent working
relationship with our friends in the DCNR and the Pennsylvania State
T Club membership dues are $20.00 per year for each person (18 years or older). Any child under the age of 18 is automatically a member as long as one parent is a paying member.
