Welcome to the F.A.S.T. Web Site! We are a southwestern Oswego County New York Snowmobile club dedicated to the sport of snowmobiling. Our mission is to promote the safe and lawful practice of our sport and to influence others to act responsibly. It doesn't matter if you live nearby, or trailer in from points distant, if you enjoy the trail system in Oswego County, it's your duty to support a local club. Besides being responsible, our group also has fun! Summer picnics, fall swap meets, and an end of season party complete with bands are just some of the year-round activities for club members. We hope you will spend some time on our web site, and decide to join us.
RESPECT ALL LANDOWNERS AND HOMEOWNERS! WITHOUT THEM, WE HAVE NO TRAIL!
January 20, 2021- Well, it appears that winter has finally arrived. The plan is to groom our trail tomorrow (1/21/21) for the first time. Any hazards- unfrozen water, downed trees/limbs, will be dealt with as best as possible, and warnings (again, as possible) will be posted. ALWAYS, ride smart, be safe.
Dec 30- The trail is still not "Open"- despite a decent snowfall, already it is melting away. We would like to have ice instead of open water... On a different note- the FAST trail is a "connector trail", not a "destination trail system". Our trail is the only one that connects east/west across the Oswego River, north of Syracuse. We have one restaurant, no gas stations, no POIs, and no designated parking areas on our trail; it serves locals as a "way out of town" and travelers a way through. Despite heavy/early snowfall, there is only 19 miles of trail in our system.
Dec 25- Merry Christmas! Obviously, our trail is not yet open... The groomer certainly won't be out before Dec 30th, so, IF you try to ride the trail before then, BE VERY CAREFUL! No one else is responsible for your safety- that's part of what makes our sport great. And, unless you're one of our volunteers, no complaints about the trail will be taken.
December 21, 2020- Due to the recent death of one of our landowners, there's a new trail, running east/west, just south of County Line Road, through Hubbards' fields. This eliminates the trail south into Onondaga County, through Misita's and Wilford's properties, over to Fairbrothers'. No more beaver problems- flooding/washouts/bridge erosion. The new trail crosses Oswego County Route 14, just south of County Line Road, proceeds west to Oswego County Route 55. Junction ON 005C is moved northeastward. All is clearly marked. Also, C5 runs from the junction south to and alongside Fenner Road, to the old trail through Spike Pickard's property. Your trail app will not soon reflect these changes, so follow the signs and groomer path! North from the Junction, the trail to Fulton generally follows National Grid's power lines. This section is still sparsely marked; however, trail from Russell Rd to Rathburn Rd is mostly done, especially the mucks and the area from the Granby Highway barns north to Lakeshore Rd.
