Snow Creates Winter Playground in Harriman State Park

Lake Welch Parkway a haven for snowmobilers, cross country skiers and more.

The recent snowfall has created a winter sports playground in Harriman State Park.  

Lake Welch Parkway in the park is closed from Exit 16 on the Palisades Interstate Parkway from November to April.  During this time, New York State suspends winter maintenance and opens the road to snow mobile traffic.  

Cross country skiers, winter mountain bikers and snowshoers can also enjoy several miles of unmaintained snow-covered roadway.

That's nice but, perhaps you could give more info on snowmobile use there? Where can you park to unload and snowmobile? Are there any requirements?
