The Tug Hill region is directly west of the Adirondacks and just south of the 1000 islands, located roughly in the triangle formed by Watertown, Rome, and Syracuse. It encompasses approximately 2000 square miles. The most outstanding characteristic of the Tug Hill region is its undeveloped state. There are some small, scattered hamlets and villages along the outer edges of the region, but the core area is heavily forested and relatively unpopulated.
The area, because of its landform and location east of Lake Ontario, has the perfect conditions for lake effect snowstorms. These storms are responsible for the majority of the 200-300 inches of snow which fall each year, turning the region into a winter wonderland. The heavy snowfall is one of Tug Hillâ€™s greatest recreational assets.
Tug Hill has an extensive snowmobile trail network across the region. A rapidly growing ATV trail network compliments the snowmobile trails, providing year round riding opportunities.
