I'll be home again November 4th. Right now it is tentative date for me to ride. I am just gauging interest. I'm looking at riding in Isabella, PA. I think if we met there then it would be a pretty good place to ride for most people. These coal slags are larger than Clairton and there are also trails that cut through the wooded areas. I know that Matt likes this kind of riding a lot. Any way you look at it you can have a blast.

I cannot host at my house but I can get everyone who is interested to an area that can park and unload. This is for anything. People ride just about anything on this land. You will see quads, Mules, 6 wheelers sometimes, and dirt bikes. There are a few trails that run along the train tracks that will take you to Chuck's Boat Club where you can stop and take a break and grab something to eat, drink, or even a BEER. Plus there are a lot of hill climb areas, trails in the woods if you dig that kinda stuff, Crucible coal slag pile just about a 10 minute ride away, and easy entry level riding for those of you who want to bring the kids.

I figure that I will share where I ride so that people new to the area or just looking for new places to ride can find them easier.

Go to Google maps and put this in as the destination.

oh you guys would have a blast. I ride an 07 YZ250f and my girlfriend will be out riding with us for the first time on a 2001 Recon 4x2. If I think she can handle the terrain then I think you and the son would be fine. One of the dump/slag piles is a little easier to ride as well. It as interesting place to get out and ride. There are trails that cut from Isabella to Crucible dumps (Across the river from the town of Crucible). You can at least spend a day riding without feeling like you can't explore and you are trapped in one place.

Get your bikes out and get them ready for this weekend. I'm driving home 4 hours and I am going riding on Sunday. I hope to see you guys out and about. Plus, the Steelers are playing the Ravens and we all know how that is going to end so lets just celebrate on the bikes and someone can haul around a radio if they want to hear the game!

SEE YOU THERE!!!! :ride:

This is an older post, but is this a riding area open to the public or a pay place?
