Depends on the area. Here the FS does patrol the designated routes and sometimes local county deputies join them. NPS personnel patrol the FS roads and trail system adjacent to the NP boundary to make sure sledders are not sneaking into the Park.
Lassen NF has over 300 miles of designated snowmobile routes and you are allowed to leave the designated routes if you wish, with some exceptions. There are a few ski/snowshoes only trails where motor sleds are not allowed and please stay off them. The two wintersport groups have worked out an understanding and respect of each other and no one wants to restart the snow wars of years past.
Designated wilderness, national parks, and the PCT are closed to motorized vehicles. Not sure of state parks.
