Pittsburgh Area Rider's Thread

After a few great rides with others from the area, we realized there was a need for a Pittsburgh Area thread to post local rides. So here it is...

Let's see what you got Pittsburgh!

PaSlammer steps up and gets it going. I have to agree folks Ive went on a camping trip wknd and a day ride with this group and theyre a blast. I'm up for a day or two trip anytime rite now. Im looking for another dual sport (smaller) then I'll do some single track.

I'm going to get out my PA Gazetteer and start looking for some fun.

In the meantime, this thread would be a good location to store a few good routes, roads, POIs or waypoints.

Trail Parks

Anyone ever been to Four Seasons Resort, Rock Run or Mines & Meadows? Looking to maybe do a camp out with the kids in a couple weeks and thought we'd give them a try.

Four Seasons is all two-track ATV trails. It is a good place for kids. The trails aren't difficult. There is a track area that kids will enjoy. You'll need to have proof of insurance for all of the bikes.



Rock Run is a cool place with a lot of everything. Roads, two-track, single track, play areas. They are only open on weekends this time of the year.

I've never been to Mines and Meadows.

How old are your kids?

That sounds awesome hightest! They'll love it.

I've been itching to get out and play! I've been watching Romaniacs on YouTube and have delusions of grandeur! As well I've been watching enduro techniques and I'm just amazed at what these guys are doing. Every day I head home and tty out something new. I'm about to set up an obstacle course in the woods to play on. It would be great for the boys as well.

Anyway, I'm having a blast with the new bike. Should've bought a dirt bike years ago.

all my dirt riding buddies quit riding so I got the 800 and started adventure riding and sold my KTM. I'll find something soon to pick up. I've always rode dirt . Cant get enough.
