Off roading near Pittsburgh, PA
 
My jeeps only a month old and I've been dying to take it off roading. I live in the south hills just outside of Pgh and don't know of any good places to go. I have heard of a few places out in south park and even Beatle park in Elizabeth. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Pensylvania is littered with OHV parks it feels like. Now Rather then go through all your legal options here, because I think there are others better qualified to talk to you about them then me even know I feel like I know alot about PA's legal options including RC.. Im gonna dirrect you to looking at the PA Section here on WF as well as you local offroad forum Pittsburgh OffRoad, LLC

Hey there jkwrangler, I just stumbled on this forum while looking for places to get dirty around Pitt. I don't own a jeep but I do live in Whitehall near Baldwin High. Hit me up if you don't mind a GMC tagging along.

I actually live right behind Baldwin high as well. Behind the football field. I'm currently at school at duq and don't have much time to get muddy now. But I'll let you know if I decide to go. No problem with a gmc tagging along!

Im also in s hills. Ive been looking for awhile now. Most places online are for atvs and bikes around here. Heard w. va has some good spots around Weirton and morgantown. Ill look more in depth and post all findings. If i find any decent trails we should get a group together and head out.

Tjkid8 10-04-2013 08:39 PM

I am from the Brookline area not too far from you guys I been looking for spots for a while I've trailed 40 acres an green mans in bethel park but nothing real good if you guys find anything let us know! I think the group thing would be cool!!

Tjkid8, I live in Beaver County and am also looking for fellow off road enthusiasts and Jeepers. I have an 05 TJ, buying 31s for Christmas...lift in late Spring. Definitely into setting up some group activities.

Tjkid8 11-16-2013 07:02 PM

Cool if you guys find a spot an wanna try it out let me know!!

Hi all, I happen to stumble upon this thread and thought I'd let you guys know where I've been going for years. There is a large network of trails in South Connellsville that includes some pretty serious mud bogs, creek crossings, steep hills, etc. Its so massive that I've probably only explored a small fraction of the place.

Another interesting thing to mention about this place is that one of the trails will take you to a very large underground limestone mine that you used to be able to drive into. The mine is now mostly sealed up but you can still climb a hill (by foot) and walk into it. The place is called Casparis if you're interested in learning more about it.

I was up there about 3 weeks ago with a few buddies and spent 4 hours driving through the trails in the woods. The place isn't too hard to find but if you don't know where you are looking, it could be a challenge. I'd be happy to get a group together and meet up and go there sometime. I've been going through mostly solo for years and always take a risk of getting stuck. It would be great to go with a large group.

I should also mention that since its in the mountains, they usually get more snow than around the city so that adds to the fun. From downtown it would take about 1.5 hours to get there.

Let me know... I'm thinking about going there again this weekend.

Off roading
 
Hey I know I'm late on this but have you found any spots in Pittsburgh. I'm from Baldwin to let me know!

Senayski 08-07-2014 11:25 AM

Im from canonsburg. Ive had my jeep for a month and no off roading yet. I know Of a big field, and somewhat decent woods (may need some clearing out). We used to quad up there all the time. The next rain we get I think Im gonna give it a go and see how it is. If its worth it we could meet up and have a little fun.

curlycarille 08-19-2014 07:16 PM

Jbonen42 01-02-2015 12:43 PM

Im down to go I live in Butler. My old neighbor has a trail in the woods that's good to go on with other little trails going off of it too. It's nothing too serious but it's pretty decent and all woods.

Take it up to the old quarry, Hillsvale PA just outside of New Castle. Great place to go. Look it up on mapquest, go to satellite zoom in and you can see the trails. Lots of off roaders go to a place call the Bahamas. Son's been up there many times. Check it out.

1997 JK rear sway bar mount
 
Hi everyone. My son has a 1997 Jeep Wrangler, Sahara Edition. We put a 2 1/2" lift kit on it. The mount for the rear sway bar that is welded to the axle broke. It cannot be rewelded. Anyone know of where I can get a new mount for this. A lot of things tie into this mount, brake lines, etc. Thanks for your help.
