I would love to make maps of all the dirt roads in western MD and southern PA. I have a lot of them mapped out the old school way... paper map and highlighter, but I would love to make them digital and share them on the forum... so, how do you do it in google maps? Thanks!
Go to google maps, login with your account (or create one), click on "My Places" (top of the left col), then "Maps", and "Create Map".

In the map view there should be three icons near the top: Hand tool, place mark tool, and path tool. Click and hold on the path tool to select "Draw a line along roads". Save as public and share.

Do any locals know the current road conditions in Michaux?

Saturday is supposed to be 50 degrees and sunny, plus I HAVE THE DAY OFF!

I'm thinking of taking a ride up to Michaux (i live about an hour south of there) on Saturday with a friend who has never been.

Are the roads in Michaux still frozen over? Thanks!

The roads are thawed out and muddy right now. At least that is how they are on the north end of Michaux where I live.

I was just down there this weekend and rode down through Caledonia. I live just outside Harrisburg, so it's a great quick runabout and I am fortunate to have it so close...

Welcome aboard FOCB~
Feel free to post up your Michaux photos and stories here.

I'm jealous of all Y'all who live close to the park... ANY good gravel is a min 45 miles from me.

It takes less than 45 seconds to get from the end of my driveway to Michaux gravel

Yeah, it's great.

Yeah, it's great.
Well my summer home driveway is gravel .
But it takes me 20 minute to get to Michaux, or 10 minutes to get to Buchanan, around 15 minutes to get to Tuscarora. Maybe 30 minutes to get to Rothrock. I couldn't have picked a better place myself.

My Grandfather gave us the property. We have been going here all our lives. My ancestors were some of the original settlers of the area. (and some of them still ride around in buggies)
Feels like home up there.
