ALBANY -- Several county and area organizations have been awarded money by the 2013-2014 Recreational Trails Program.

D.R.A.G. of Speculator has been awarded $80,000 for the purchase of a reconditioned Class A snow grooming machine and drag and a set of tracks for one of its existing machines, to be used on the snowmobile trails in Speculator and Lake Pleasant.

D.R.A.G.'s Bob Carr says, "We have not purchased the groomer yet but we will be going out to bid soon."

D.R.A.G. started grooming the village trails Sunday, Dec. 15, after about nine inches of snow fell during the night.

Pleasant Rider Snowmobilers Inc. won a $56,600 grant toward a new Class II groomer, while Central Adirondack Partnership for the 21st Century (CAP-21) won a $59,000 grant for the Barnstormers snowmobile club in Inlet.

The Recreational Trails Program is a state-administered, federal assistance program to provide and maintain recreational trails for both motorized and non-motorized recreational trail use.

In New York state it is administered by the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
