Im in Waynesboro near chambersburg. T-Berry opens here soon near south mountain PA. It also connects to Rattle Snake which is all public free trails. Not hard core trails but do vear off to mud bogs and moderate rock crawling!

I find I interesting that folks spends hundreds and thousands of dollars on their rigs, but think $45 for a weekend of four wheeling is expensive . . .to each their own I guess.

thats why i dont spend thousands... because i dont have it... to go drive around and wheel should be free imo, expecially since things get broke that cost money... so thats even more to spend.

What exactly is "T -Berry" and does Rattlesnake Mountain allow for jeeps? i check a website briefly and I thought it said mountain bikes only? Or maybe i'm looking at the wrong place

There is a place in limrick by the powerplan. Im geussing they let people wheel in there because theres no no trespassing signs and they dont gate off the entreance to the place and cops know we go back there. Maby we can meet up and roll out there sometime. Its nothing really hardcore big mudbog. apparentley my friends thing my jeep is overkill for it.

You have to be careful at this place. Stock will probabley get you through most of it but there are a lot of spots to get stuck in. If you want ill PM you my number and we can run up there with my buddy's sometime. You never want to go to this place alone. If you get stuck theres no getting out without a winch or another truck.

the airport isnt bad. theres the place by the tunnel and then u can go down the road further past fort mifflin and theres another spot. and if u keep folowin the train tracks theres a beach u can drive on to... i live litterally 30 seconds away from it in tinicum which part of it is in tinicum... and i wouldnt really worry bout the cops me and my buddy never had any problems... if u guys wanna make a trip to go to the airport pm me and we'll get the ball rolling. i dont wnna do anything till next month anyways(gotta get tires.) So just PM me to make some plans.

Open to newbie runs

New to offroading and really excited to get into it. If anyone has some novice runs or time to mentor a bit let me know. I want to get out to the Rattlesnake/Tberry place soon as it seem to be the only place near me.

Im in Red Lion, PA.

Ive been down behind the airport several times and its pretty fun to go and explore as long as theres no dirt bikers or quads in your way. I cant remember exactly where it is but i know you have to go down 291 and make a sketchy U-Turn at some point. A day after it rains is defiantly the best time to go. It can get pretty damn muddy and the water can get pretty deep at some parts. Its a really good place to get used to wheeling if you've never done it before. Last time i went was when my 98 XJ was running good with a 2.5" lift with 32" tires and I had no problem with anything. Most of my friends go to treverton, Pa now. im actually missing out on a wheeling trip this weekend cause i am currently jeepless
