On to my next adventure area. Got the day use map and am starting to plan a route. Another area not yet covered by the Purple Lizard.
So, right off I got a question.
Ridge Road campsites. Any one know anything about them.
They do not show up in searches or on the interactive camping map I...
So I decided to get out to Loyalsock. It is a 2 hour highway drive. But who wants to drive the highway.
So, starting in Rothrock going through Bald Eagle up through Pine Creek and then over to Loyalsock and across is about a 14 hour dirt road extravaganza.
So that is too much for a day...
I have many threads about the forests of Pennsylvania. And this is a supplement to Connecting the forests in Central Pennsylvania.
I have thoroughly explored the lizard maps...and have learned so much from them.
THE GAP, the area between the Moshannon/Quehanna map and the Pine Creek map/Bald...
FALL FOLIAGE, VISTAS AND 4X4 HC TRAILS
Thought I would share a route I take in the fall and early summer to check out the beauty of PA.
I have had both my RAM 2500 and Jeep Cherokee on these trails. So they are Full size and cute ute friendly. Expect pinstripes on full size and Poe Paddy...
Just wanted to brainstorm with my plan. I have been scouting out the area making sure I get plenty of time in the forests while I wait for the opportunity to make it a trip.
I always hear that Pennsylvania just doesn't offer the experiences the west does. But I noticed a lot of people...
Looking to spend some time scouting here. Purple Lizard maps will be finishing up their Map soon and will be available for purchase in the summer.
Anyone spend some time here?
Can not wait to get tires in dirt here.
Starting to gather information for a trip here. Got some maps being sent my way.
Got all my scouting done in Rothrock and Bald Eagle. Hoping to get here soon...
Anyone have any experience?
We are probably going to be adding ATV to our equipment list, and they have 2 ATV trails.
Not going to be as spectacular as some, just a 2 day one night trip with my son.(age 7)
Starting in Rothrock and headed to Bald Eagle where we we will spend the night.
Vehicle will be a 2015 RAM 2500 Tradesman. Camping in a ground tent.
Can not wait to go.
Got the permit and the gas in the...
I spent some time plotting a course with the Pine Creek map by purple lizard.
Anyone not familiar with the area the map covers...it is the area that includes the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon.
It is from Interstste 80 North to New York.
As I was looking at it I noticed quite a few areas if...
Thought I would see where a discussion about the nuisances, dangers and beauty of Eastern American wildlife would take us.
Ticks. Annoying and pretty much useless. Never saw one (except on a farm dog and deer) until 2006 when I went to Carman school for the railroad in Georgia. First one I ever...
I have a few threads already for trip planning. I started with a plan to see one of the most popular in PA (Bald Eagle) which grew to include an adjoining one (Rothrock).
After researching Rothrock I realized that I have spent much time in State Forests in PA, but wasn't seeing the Forest for...
As we set out exploring and camping one of the things we like to find are firetowers.
So, figured I would start a thread to see if any other East region members like to find them too.
This one is on fire tower road in Blandburg, PA.
My son and I like to hike the short trail up to it and...
I have been keeping track of people who have helped with or shown interest in my ramblings and in the Pennsylvania State Forests in genral.
The 4 most popular Forests seem to be
The Allegheny National Forest is also popular...being in the Susquehannok...
Wandering if anyone attends. Last year was my first year and it is now a ritual that coincides with my decades long trek to Chrysler@Carlisle (they are the same weekend)
It is more geared to just 4x4 vehicles...but there are some outfitters that seem to have knowledge of overlanding.
So, got the email sent to receive info about motorized camping here.
This will also be on the list to explore.
More info to come...if anyone has experience here please post.
I have a few threads for my trip planning, so figure it is time for a place to gather thoughts on the "build".
2015 RAM 2500. It is a Crew Cab with an 8 foot bed, so it definitely qualifies as full figured.
Power comes to it from a 392 cubic inch HEMI. Of course they did away with the manual...
This will be the trip planning for a extended trip with overnight stays and daily exploring that will be an attempt to off pavement travel from the begining of one to the end of the other.
Looks like it is possible according to the maps I have. Will need to get some tires in the mud to see for...
So, before I have been able to make my first planned trip, I got a curveball.
So another member was asking how to connect BESF with Rothrock.
Then i realized, hey, I could do this and incorporate one of my favorite state park campground, Trough Creek.
Just emailed for the public uuse and...
