Rock Run - Patton, PA
This is season #2 for us. The first ride is tomorrow. This place has just eaten hours and hours of my time, and I'm happy to say it's been worth it. The park staff has really taken an interest with 4x4s, so we're doing something right. If we continue to do well, we could easily double our terrain in the next year.
Here's the mailing that we've put out recently.
The 2009 wheeling season is just around the corner here in the Northeast. Rock Run Recreation Area and the Western Pa 4x4 Trails Advisory Committee would like to thank you for making 2008 a successful first season at the park. We have learned quite a bit in our first year and hope to make some changes in how we will operate in 2009.
Unlike last year, our open rides will not require a pre-registration. The committee will, however, still provide trained guides for each open trail date. For clubs who wish to have a club-only trail ride, we will gladly accept your group of 15 or more trucks. If your club would like to join up with another club, please go to our website at http://wpa4xtrac.org and join the forum. Introduce yourself and inquire about other clubs.
The fee schedule will remain the same as 2008. Daily fees are as follows: $25 for driver. $5 per passenger. Camping is $10 for a group of 6 individuals (camp sites are quite close, so you can camp with your whole group).
If you have any questions or would like to request a club-only trail date, please contact Dan Guyer at firstname.lastname@example.org
