oh, your waiting for me to finish proof riding it correct?

give me some time. Just mounted new tires, now waiting for it to stay above freezing so I can move my RV to a central location on the western part of my route.
I'm in Wayne County and could help you do some weekend exploring in this neck of the woods and the surrounding counties if you'd like.

TPAT to northern end of TWVT

Right now Chip - IntoTheNew - and I have THREE different routes mapped to connect the western end of the TPAT to the northern end of the TWVT trail.

I think Chip has ridden some of his, I haven't ridden either of mine - but it's penciled on the schedule for May.

We'll use what we can get - and there's enough there ridden to do what we need to do, but we think it would be cool to have the loop completed to have a stand alone loop in PA.

If you look at the map Chip posted, we now have loops around Georgia, NW New Jersey and in SE New York.

There are other things in the works along those lines....

this starts near michaux state forest? The TPAT only goes TO michaux. There is so many people with many routes is Michaux I figured I didn't need to work on that part. :) I think I got to Pine Grove Furnace, or the ATV area parking lot just south of Pine Grove Furnace campground. riders could actualy stay a day or 2 and ride all the routes in Michaux before continuing onto the TWVT


I will also be finishing up the TPAT starting in April - May time frame. I need to be done by the 4th of July.

TPAT connection

Right now I'm on the road and don't have my routes with me, so I don't know exactly where we connect.

I'll be home next week so I'll get back to you on the exact places.... I know on my routes I have a couple of alternates south of I-80 and at least one north of I-80.

I'll get back with you on exactly WHERE we're talking about connecting.

What I laid out and ran was from Weedville PA to Chester WV. The Eastern section worked out decent, until I reached the Allegheny River. From there West was simply running through bedroom communities, it's a no-go.

The TPAT stuff I am testing starts about 30 miles NE of weedville, then heads down to the PA/MD border in the Michaux State Forrest (east of Chambersburg). I have 2 to 3 days of riding in that section.

I will be following the route as shown on my link on the TPAT thread. The western side was laid out by "community input". I am sure it will be nice, I just want to test ride it.

I know you have asked me to color code my route, but there are no hero sections. My buddy could ride all of it on his BMW R1200S (with proper tires, and it's not raining :) )

Here is a pretty picture.

Port Jervis to Catskill Alternative

The map posted by "inthenew" looks like it goes through Port Jervis, and crosses the Hudson at the Catskill bridge. Here is an alternate route that goes through some higher elevations and less populated areas.

My reasoning
  1. The state road sections have to include Rt 10 at the Cannonsville Reservoir, and Rt 30 at the Pepacton Reservoir.
  2. The Ulster county roads 42 and 47 trisecting the Catskills are a must.
  3. The Catskill Escarpment should be exited by the most spectacular route, Platte Cove Road.
  4. For primitive dirt sections, we need the back river road south of Lordsville and Rock Rift Mountain Road.
  5. For maintained dirt, we need Mary Smith Road, Shin Creek and Cross Mountain Road.

Port Jervis to Catskill Alternative Connector map

This route meanders but I really like it, for me the best roads are the ones that have to follow some natural feature like a river, a hollow or a hill. This is nice combination of twisty roads, dirt and scenic views.

These are some sections from the paved portion that I took a few years ago.

Looks like fun. Seeing as how the Pine Barrens ride has been cancelled this weekend, we're all dressed up with no place to go. Care to upload a .gpx of this route?

CannonsvilleRider - Big thanks for your work above. I rode portions of your TetCatskillsAlt and CatGerrymander this past weekend, with a camp stop near Delhi. Excellent weekend for it, the dirt roads were perfect and the paved sections empty too!

Has anyone ridden those lately and can speak to whether they're passable

It's good

I haven't been everywhere, but the snow is all gone and most of the mud too.

Thanks for posting these routes CvilleRider. I just moved to Hamden and I am trying them out on my DRz. So far they rock and it is keeping my camera busy. Keep them coming, especially the dirt ones.
