The Department of Conservation & Natural Resources Summary of Pennsylvania’s Snowmobile Law covers most everything you need to know to ride legally and safely in Pennsylvania.
Private Land Trails
Thanks to the generosity of hundreds of private properly owners, and the diligence of Pennsylvania snowmobile clubs who negotiate access, maintain trails, and reinforce responsible riding — Pennsylvania is blessed with many connections and nearly 2,500 miles of trail on private land.
Therefore, it is extremely important to us to see that riders respect this privilege, and PSSA is working (along with clubs, DCNR, and other organizations) to strengthen the laws that protect these property owners.
The Recreational Use of Land and Water Act (RULWA) of 1966 was passed to safeguard those people who share their property with others for recreational purposes. This handout may be a helpful piece when you talk with landowners along your trails.
