XJ Knight Rauch is only like an hour and a half from lancaster pa.. Enjoy guys. It's the best place in the north east to go offroading and you don't have to travel 5+ hours to get there

Agreed!! They'll spend a hundred or so at an amusement park, or 50 on date nite at the movies, and a burger,, or thousands going on a cruise... But $45 to go wheelin?? Heaven forbid!! But, most think I'm a wack job for spending all that gas money for our trips to Moab, the Rockies, and to our friends way up north. (Gaspe' peninsula ) I'll take wheelin, camping and hiking, any time,, over man made amusements..

jasonduke5 Look up rausch creek on you tube. I have been there years ago to ride my dirt bike. I guess now they have an awsome off road set up for jeeps and other off roaders.

BTA88 I'm also in LanCo. I do most of my off roading up in Ravine, Hegins and Tower City.

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

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.

So just PM me to make some plans.

Pontiackid87 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.

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

Pontiackid87 Im down for whatever to. How is the Airport? Its the area near the tunnel right?
05-15-2010 09:57 PM
KawiTJ 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.
