Check out the places to ride section at dirtbiking.com. There is a place near Zanesville called Perry county state forest that has camping and riding. I have never been there but I have heard that it is awsome. I plan to go in early August.
Wayne National Forest towards Nelsonville is a great place to ride, I believe they also offer camping. Most of the trail is fairly twisty, up and down hardpack. Nice banked turns but watch out for the quads :scream:
I've heard that Elson St. is a good place to ride, though I havn't been there yet. It is in Waynesburg, Oh. At the intersection of Rts. 43 and 44, take Elson St. 1/2 mile until it dead ends. Contact names: Sam 495-7139 or Kevin 877-2156. I found out about it here on DRN, so you may want to search the threads.
here is a place called Bear Creek which is south of Cleveland. I have never been there but it sounds good and im pretty sure they have camping and fishing too... go to this link and look at the third place down...
I know of a farmer property in or near Canton/Minerva around US 30, he has 230 acres, chrages $10, has camping. its decent place. I'll dig up the direction for it and post it, I have not been there this year. Hillsville ( near PA border off of 224 ) has been shut down so I am down to 3 places to ride Wellsville, Bear Creek and this place. I trying to get into racing since it look s like the only other way to get time on 2 wheels.
hey erac i live in st.c too, let me know where you ride. im supposed to go to lightning raceway this sunday but i have my doubts if it keeps raining.if lightning doesnt happen id be up for a little local riding.theres another member on here from st.c too, jimmyd2 where are you?.......later,dave
daveEX, we ride mostly in Fairpoint, there are tons of places to ride around there. We usually put around 50 miles in a day and only ride a small portion of whats there. That is also where the GNCC race is going to be in October, it says St.C on the website but it's in the point....Oh yea and I ride with JimmyD2, I bought my KLX after I rode his.
There are usually quite a few people riding there on the weekend. But there are so many places to ride that you hardly ever run into anyone. The guy's from Xtreme Suzuki (A&B) ride there too.
Wow, just got back from running the HS at Pine Lake this last weekend, what a blast - weather was lousy, but can't control that I guess!!
Here are the directions to a riding spot I promised ya guys.
This is off the map sheet I originally got, as I remember they suck, and I havn't been there in a while so I can't remember my "edits" but I found it with these and so will you. This place is nice, pretty cool trail, a couple hills, something that could resemble a natural terrain track, only 2 or 3 jumps though that I could find :(

Magnus, both of your bikes scare me. :eek: I really don't have anything against quads. I get worried about all the beer drinking, helmetless quad riders at Seven Creeks though. It is a good riding spot other than that.
SPD, It appears that you have ridden all over Ohio. What are your favorite riding areas? I went to Perry a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it.
