20wrangler31 Went to treverton today by myself, everybody there is really friendly and welcoming, the trails are almost all Jeep friendly, just know your limitations and you'll be fine. Lots of people camp and stay the weekend there, plenty of mud holes and rock climbs, perfect for beginners and up. If anyone ever wants to go and needs someone to go with, i'm always looking to go wheelin'.

Joshpeb2 Just past the Fairlane Village mall on the opposite side of 61 is the Wal-Mart I spoke of earlier. The area my neighbor rides the dirt bikes and quads at is adjacent to the parking lot up on top the hill. He said something about going down into town to access the area. There is a traffic light just before wal-mart and there is a gas station on the corner on the right (if heading north on 61) turn right there. From there I cant remember where he said to go. I DO know that the correct road goes up over the mountain and there is a golf course along that road. I have driven up the road several years ago and saw lots of activity but, I don't know the legality of the area.

wolfesneck Wish I knew more about it, looks rather extensive and complex. I'll look closer next time I am in that area. I am about an hour or so east from that spot...

Reading Anthracite is nice (have had our passes last 2 years) it is a huge area and not very difficult but its a nice place to go play for a few hours. They charge $100/vehicle for a 1 yr pass.
I believe the RC type park project is the Northumberland OHV park proposal. Is this the same area of PA? I think a little north of RC. There are some articles on newsitem.com. Go to that site and use their search function for the terms 'economic engine'. If the same site, technically use of these 'free' lands is trespassing (per the article I read) but apparently is not enforced. If/when the new park opens I understand will not be free to locals but there will be a tiered fee for local/non-local.

Joshpeb2 I believe up at Treverton all you are "supposed" to have for dirt bikes and quads is the dcnr registration. Never heard anything about regular vehicle requirements. Anyone ever been up to Shenandoah (the name I know it by) right by the Wal-mart in Pottsville? Neighbor goes riding up there all the time. Been invited many times but, It never fails that I have plans when he's going.

shaunmac Im open to go somewhere this sunday if anyone is interested. **disclaimer** I am a true newbie and have yet to be out on a trail and need some mentoring. I have always wanted to get into this and after 10 years of wanting pulled the trigger last weekend on my new Jeep.

Thanks

I've heard of them before. We've never been up there, but I've heard it's a good place.

KawiTJ cool, ill check it out

jgano23 there is also a place called reading anthracite. i just found out about it recently. it is 100% legal. i believe you pay $100 for a yearly membership and they let you use designated parts of their property. one of my customers belongs to a club and he wheels his deuce and a half up there.
04-28-2010 10:48 AM
KawiTJ as far as i know. I know that to ride dirt bike you are supposed to have a membership, but i have yet to come across anyone that has one or knows where to get them. If you have a street legal vehicle then you're fine. I have been there about 15 times and never been questioned on my dirtbike. there are videos all over youtube of the place. heres a few, the first few are mud, the last is a small rock wall

jgano23 oh, ok. i think i may have heard about that place. it is a legal place to go right?
04-28-2010 10:26 AM
KawiTJ that link is the parking lot and the white lines are the start of some trails. There are a bunch of logging roads about 2 and a half jeeps wide, some one wide, and plenty of small obsticles.
04-28-2010 10:23 AM
KawiTJ its an old coal place. There are trails on one side and coal on the other side of the road. Doesnt cost anything, ive seen alot of people camping, riding, and fourwheeling. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...09624&t=h&z=17 If you pull the map to see further to the right, you can see how big the place is.
04-28-2010 08:35 AM
jgano23 nope, never even heard of the place. is it a park like rausch creek? how much is it to wheel there? do they have a website?
