Speculator, NY   · Adirondack Mountains
Founded in 2004, D.R.A.G. (Dedicated Residents to Area Grooming) of Speculator is a Non-Profit Member of the New York State Snowmobile Association. We have a hard working group of volunteer club members who work with local and state governments to maintain and groom over 25 miles of Snowmobile trails in the Speculator and Lake Pleasant region. Our commitment to grooming and maintenance helps make the trail system more enjoyable and safe to use. We help make local business more accessible with our Business Access Trail as well as provide a well-groomed connection between surrounding towns and other trail systems. In addition to funding from the state snowmobile trail fund (funded exclusively from snowmobile registration fees), membership dues and donations from members and sponsors are used to cover the cost of fuel, maintenance, new equipment, and improvements every year.
Meetings are the 3rd Saturday of every month at 7pm, September through April at the Lake Pleasant Library which is located at 2864 Route 8 in Speculator. Please check our Facebook page for updates.)
