I'm not saying that it is good - but if they haven't decided to close most of those 188 - you are better off than the whole North East.

I hear you North east, its just bad here becuase it is not nearly as open in SE Pa as it is in most of the NE US. So every body is a NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) freak that tries to stop what you do on private property. Some NIMBY called the cops on me about a month ago riding with permission on a small track, and told them some one was setting the woods on fire! I came around a corner and saw the chief standing in the trial he siad hi how are you, well I see your not setting stuff on fire, and all that. Oh well, at least we still have all the strip mined coal mines in mid state and all, but the club up there will require all the registratin and insuranse and stickers and stuff! More money to a state that uses it to screw me, more Harrisburg BS, Makes me want to take up a less percecuted hobbie like selling crack!

Try to be courteous to all the folks you see on the trail. It will help keep the riding areas open!

You should be happy your state provides you with SOME kind of outlet for riding. NY state does sh** for us, and we've been paying OHV registrations forever. Monies that were supposed to go to trail funding, maintenance, etc has dissapeared into other DOT money pits. We have absolutely NOTHING in the southeast parts of the state, and if you want to ride anywhere legally, you better have your own land, or be in the middle of bum-F-Egypt, with no neighbors in site. Before you start freaking out, read this link- http://www.paatving..../714press.asp.)
Looks like you might have more riding areas on the way. We, on the other hand, still dont have squat. See you in Canada-

Liability insurance - where's the problem? If you are riding on public land you are a fool if you don't carry liability insurance. Spend the few dollars a year to cover your ass.

I never could understand the way state game lands are handled.
Until recently, state forests weren't too bad. If you had a street legal machine you could travel any trail that wasn't posted off-limits. Now it reads more like "all trails are closed unless posted open".
Our old strip mines (mid-state) are being cleaned up and sold off (read closed) one by one.
