Forgot to mention,

AT Trail crossing Hawk Mtn Road in Kempton, PA.
My favorite place to ride in the fall. Beautiful area of PA.

I'm going to throw up a few short clips of a hellish road I was on today in the BS thread in a bit...I promise never to put a tag on that road once I start grabbing them

Never did. I'd just go up there once a month or so and beat my boddy against to rocks.

I rode mountain bike weekend for years. In our less intelligent moments, we would ride from the campground, climb that hill with the sign, ride the broad mtn loop and ride back to the campground. Your tag brought back some memories.

I'm pretty sure the Broad Mountain loop is still open to riding, since it'all fire road and power line. The technical stuff like Pine Tar, Pipeline, Deer Path, and American Standard are what's shut down. Uranium Road was closed long before. Memories of all that is why I had to go after that tag yesterday. Still decent riding on the two ridges from Flagstaff out to Summit Hill and back to the top of switchback.

New Tag, the image of the footbridge and/or lake dam.



Hints:

Tag is about 1 mile north of this camp store.



AND 500 yds north of this inn.

Nice tag Mark! About time you get pic up rather than talk to other inmates while out for a spin! Lol. Nice running into you.

Hey John!

I met this inmate on way thru Stroudsburg today. Another Strommer set up for adventure riding!

Hey Max,

That's the Lackawaxen bridge on the Delaware River. My tag is on a lake a little further SW. But great spot for a tag! Best find that Inn. The Inn is the clue.

The Roebling Bridge would be a retag of tag number 205 in this game.

Steve & I dropped tag 205. Steve received the credit for it but I took him to the spot

That bridge is really cool and always worth the ride to see up close. John Roebling designed the bridge and later went on to build the Brooklyn Bridge. Although he died before final completion of the BB.

I bet Max is out dropping riding north to drop a tag!
Hey Max..

I did that once, grabbed a tag of a covered bridge. But wrong bridge. And I rode in a wet snow fall to grab it. Oh well, it was fun.

Isn't that called a " Bootstrap"? In honor of
Bootstrap of the Lancaster area.
