Byrncliffe Resort near Varysburg, NY is a large summer golf resort that
welcomes snowmobilers in Wyoming County. The resort is just off
of NY rte #20A, about half a mile east of rte #77.
There is a nice bar and restaurant, a small number of motel rooms, and
paved parked for about a dozen trailers next to the resort.
Across the street there is maintained grass parking lot that holds
maybe 40 additional trailer parking spots. On very busy weekends,
riders also park on the road next to that lot, but that is
unusual. Many thanks to Byrncliff resort for providing this
More trailer park postings to come soon! Send in yours.
Got an email saying that the Wyoming county trail map shows trailerdrop
areas "park n ride". Have not checked it out yet myself.
Another report says there is a very good park and ride listing on the
Hamburg club's website. I will check that soon and link to it.
Other known park and ride locations:
Sprague Brook Park
Earl's Drive-in old drive in lot across from Pioneer Motor Sports
More to come.
