Northumberland OHV Park is a new 6000ish acre park opening in Pa.
Some info here.

and map

A trail opening/cutting day(s) is scheduled for Dec 10th (possibly the 11th, depending upon interest). They have plenty of easy trails that need to be opened back up (mostly cutting back brush), but their main need is to cut new hard core trails. Of course any trails opened/cut will need to be tested :toothless

I plan on going up on the 10th and would love to see a bunch of broncos up there helping out (if not, I'll hang with the jeep clubs).

PM me or reply here if interested.

damn, I think this is where my buddies and I go every once in a while... it used to be free but looks like thats changing. At least it isn't getting closed down. I would love to come out but won't be available.

I can make it up there on the 10th. Just let me know what time.
That would be cool, at least I'd know one person :thumbup (unless Kev makes it). I have to figure out which route I want to take. Rt 125 looks like a towing nightmare

Dont take 125, i think it is.

For me, i always take Rt61 to 901/54 all the way to Shamokin every time i go to Erics shop, and its no big deal towing a trailer. Lotsa hills here & there, but nothing crazy like youd see on 501. Its the mountains, you cant get away from them. Take 901 right into Shamokin where you get back on Rt 61 (this saves time vs taking 61 the whole way) and from there its just a mile or two to 225 & the center of Trevorton. In your case, you could just take 78w right to Rt61 and go north from there, that puts you like 40 minutes north of me.

This looks like a good time. Gotta see if I can clear my schedule. What portion of PA is this? I'm still looking at the links provided, but whats the address?

It's probably a half hour northwest from Rausch if that helps.


These are the directions I got........

From I-81 . Take exit 116 onto Rt 901 towards Shamokin.

Stay on Rt901 to Lavelle ( about 6 miles )

In Lavelle , turn left onto High Rd . This will be the first left AFTER the Turkey Hill .

High Rd turns into Upper Rd. Stay on this for 8.5 miles to Gowen City.

In Gowen City turn right onto Rt125.

Once you are on Rt 125 it will be 1.1 miles to the entrance road . You will climb the mountain, and start down over the other side . At the 1.1 mile point turn RIGHT and then an immediate 45 degree turn to the LEFT .

Looking at a map. Gowen City is 10-15 miles from Rausch. I should be able make it in less than 20 minutes since the bronco hugs the road like a sports car:haha

Still missing great opportunities like this due to a downed truck. This is getting pretty upsetting.

Ox, you bringing the big blue bronco on the SX's? Quite a collection you got, I always wondered what your brought out to play most of the time....

Thanks OX. I'm gonna try to make this 1 since I bailed on the trip to RC.

Steering shaft and balance/beadlocks "should" be the only things holding me back.

Rightcoast4x4 guys look like they are going the 11th, so that is another possiblity depending upon who can make it. As long as one other bronc makes it the 10th (which so far is the case), I'm still good with that day. Might still be better to tag along with a jeep group on the 10th unless we get 3 or 4 broncs.
