rausch creek

so a friend of mine went somewhere up in PA this weekend to go wheeling. i was invited but couldn't go this time. they said they were going to rausch creek some other time and i could go then, but i've never been there. so what would you say it's like? if anybody has any pics of wheeling there i would appreciate seeing them. i know i'd have to become a member then pay the vehicle fee. when camping there, are the campsites big enough for a bigger tent or a small tent? can you drive right up to the sites and park there? i've seen some pictures of some seriously modified jeeps going up rocks there and i'm kind of intimidated. i've never done major rock crawling and i kind of like the trails through nature where i don't have to concentrate that hard. am i going to find stuff like that or is it all hard? they seem to think i'll be fine with the 03 in my sig, but i guess i'm looking for some confirmation on that. i'm also looking for the pics of some of the trails too. thanks everybody.

edit: i don't have a winch but everyone in my group will. is it required?

winch isn't required. i've read that on their site. i think the only equipment literally required is a vehicle lol. they recommend you bring certain items.. especially tow straps and whatnot. i also heard it has relatively easy trails for even stock jeeps, so, from what i've heard, you should be ok. but, i'm also interested in any pictures and the other info. i live rather close to rausch

yea i have some basic tow straps and tools to bring. i guess i'm more worried about the trail difficulty for someone who is new to wheeling jeeps on actual trails. most of my 4x4 experience has been plowing through mud holes with full size pickups playing in the snow, nothing really technical. they tell me they want to go on the blue trails, i said ok cool, then realized i don't even know what that means. i'm confident in the jeep just not me.

Also from what I understand there are bypasses around the extreme parts if you dont want to try them.

Raush Creek has trails rated by color similar to ski mountain...
Green- easy
Blue- easy/hard
Black - hard
purple - hard/extreme
Red - extreme

The green trails are pretty much dirt trails with some mud, small rocks, small climbs/descents. You can pretty much bring whatever size tent you want. Camping is free, but first come first serve. If theres no room, well...idk, lol. I have never had a problem finding a spot though. Go there on a friday and get a good spot, then wheel sat & sun.

Yes they are Commanders, the silver one is Adam Gano's and it is a hard act to follow. Adam is Jgano's husband, she is a Admin here.

I've wheel at lot at RC, Greens are cake walks for a stock TJ, blues are a good place to spend the day learning your rig and trying lines and such as most have more then one option. blacks are good once you have some seat time. and reds your breaking parts.

I spend my time out there on blues and blacks. I personally love Snakebite and Cemetery (I was on the cutting team for cemetery)

on snakebite


on tail 2 before crawler ridge


coming down Brake Check


tail 18 just after pizza rock


going down J


on yellow jacket

I dont have many pics of the last time i was up but im heading up there tommorow to wheel saturday and sunday so i should have some pics. With the set up you show in your profile you'll do just fine there on blues and mild blacks. Its a great place to wheel and there's so many different trails it can please anyone.
