Hey, new guy here! Found the site to be informative so I signed up. My family, plus one buddy, are all utility riders. We enjoy rides like the Hallstead Fire Dept poker run, SNIRT, and the old (but suposidly making a comeback next yr) Hancock ride. We've also been to Lost Trails and trailered 11hrs to ride for 3hrs at Majestic. Along with intoducing myself, I'm looking for members that are in my area or ones who would be willing to travel to the NY/PA border for a ride. Now, I'm in the beginning stages of organizing my own ride. Think I have a land owner who is into the idea (3,000+ acres). My buddy and I are thinking a 40'ish mile loop trail. Other than that, I have no idea how to procede!! Any suggestions or recommendations are welcome or am I just dreaming? Will it be more trouble than it's worth?

Welcome, I am also from the NEPA area and been to several o the places you mentioned, including Hallstead. Having a land owner with acres like that can turn into a good thing, hardly a pipe dream.

Hey man, welcome to the site. Sounds like you have an ambitious plan ahead of you. There are a few guys on here involved with an up and running park, I will definitely check with them and ask them to get ahold of you. Glad you enjoy the site and hopefully your dreams come to fruition.
Jumpinthe pit, say hello!!

Thanks guys! I live in Lakewood, Pa. It's about an hr north of Scranton and my group is pretty easy to spot on the trail. We have 2 identical black 2004 Wolverines (my wife and daughter). I just bought a Grizzly 550 and my buddy has a red Honda Rancher. We are kinda outlaw riders; mostly on the abandon O&W railroad and dirt roads. However, we are all insured, reg'ed, and never ride without helmets and steel toe boots so "outlaw" may be a stretch, lol!! THe 11 hrs of trailering to Majestic was 5.5 hrs each way; far more than the websites claim of "about 3 hrs". Made for a long one day trip but the trails were worth the trip. That kinda brings me to why I want to put a ride together; their are no places to ride in my area that welcome ATV"s.

I even have the dream of maybe this turning into a perminant riding area. I think the land owner is receptive t both from our brief conversations but I need to be able to give him more details. Such as how does insurance work? Profit vs non-profit? What would be reasonable admission/donation? Like I said, I'm just trying to get something going. I have no interest in doing this for any other reason than to promote good, safe, family-style ATV'ing. Also, I am interseted in joining any existing clubs/groups in my area. Thanks everyone and keep the ideas coming

welcome to ATVingPa.com Dirtfan, I think you will fit in just fine. Most of us are "family-style ATV'ing" riders.
