Default Free NYS Maps for GPS

What ever happened to the free NYS gps maps for snowmobile trails? There was a link to a free download a year or two ago but I can't seem to find it anymore. As luck would have it, my NUVI 550 got re-freshed by Garmin (because I cracked the screen) and my laptop harddrive died - now everything is gone.

Did all the free stuff go bye bye? It was just a basic trail map with no waypoints. I think it was offered by NYS.

The trail map installs into Mapsource where you can then select the trails to upload to your GPS. The map has a transparent background that overlays your units basemap, Topo or City Navigator maps allowing them to show through.

corridor trails -dark green
secondary trails - light green

This is an updated version for 2012

Now if you could do the same for the state of Wisconsin!

I created the map from shapefile data obtained from the state of NY.

If I could locate a data source for WI trails I'd make a map.
