Between muddy springtime fun, sunny summer days, and crisp autumn conditions, Lewis County offers the ideal solution for ATV enthusiasts. Over 600 miles of trails provide endless fun and excitement, and there are many trail-accessible lodging and dining establishments from which to choose.
When riding in New York, be sure your ATV is properly registered and insured.
New York honors out-of-state registrations. If your home state does not require ATVs to be registered, you must obtain a New York State registration before operating your ATV in this state.
Registration requirements do not apply to ATVs used only for agricultural purposes or for snow plowing (but not for-hire plowing).
Support Lewis County by mailing your registration to the following address. To obtain registration, download the Registration Form. For more information:
NYS Dept. of Motor Vehicles
PO Box 232
7660 N. State St.
Lowville, NY 13367
Proof of insurance must be provided upon request of a judge, the police, or a person claiming to have suffered injury or property damage from your operation of the ATV.
A helpful guide to the basics of ATV operation has been created by the Department of Motor Vehicles. You can download a copy at http://www.dmv.ny.gov/broch/c29.htm or pick one up at the chamber office.
You will find much helpful information and current events on the New York State Off-Highway Recreational Vehicle Association (NYSORVA) site.
