Paragon will doubtfully be reopened. I believe the owners of Paragon have opened a ORP in Ohio? or Indiana? anyway, not in Pa anymore. Paragon was shut down for bullshit reasons and their contract/lease was pretty much just thrown in the trashcan. there are alot of hard feeling to those to let it happen.

If it is a state park, why would it be only open to ATV's, is it a safety issue? I would think if a ATV can ride there why not a dirt bike, whats the difference?

The area is not in a state park but a state forest and the DCNR does not allow bikes on atv trails or ATVs on bike trails. It's not a safety issue but a DCNR doesn't like motorized off road vehicles issue.

If you were to ask the DCNR they would say that bikes are not registered through the DCNR like ATVs are. The truth is if the were registered the DCNR still wouldn't allow bikes access to the ATV trails.

If this bothers you please join PaOHV @ paohv.org and help us with this issue. We have worked it for years. PaOHV's stand is why pay registration for a zero increase in riding areas.

      Hi everyone! Myself and a few others are trying to start a business of an indoor/outdoor motox track and an atv/utv trail in the Pennsylvania Region. We are in the process of everything and we need a survey done to get some idea of peoples interests and to gather data. It does not matter where you are from, every bit of data helps us. Would you mind taking the survey? It takes 3 minutes to do all 20 questions!

      Riders,
      I know there are many of us that ride in these areas and there are often threads regarding information/rides for these areas  scattered throughout the forum.  I thought that it might be beneficial and useful for all of us if we can have this thread as the go to for information regarding Reading Anthracite and Anthracite  Outdoor Adventure Area.    I think we can use this thread as a way of streamlining information for;
       
      1. General information/ first hand experience type of questions that riders who are interested in these areas may have for those of us who ride there often.
       
      There is a ton of information about RAC and AOA that your not going to find on a website - RAC doesn't even have a website.
       
      2. Exchange of direction/GPS tracks/ride routes/ and parking locations.  
       
      Again there is very little "formal" maps, route directions etc for the RAC lands- this can be a great way for us to share our ride routes, GPS track etc.  Safe parking places etc.  
       
      3. Post upcoming rides and meet ups-  I know I have talked to many of you who ride these areas alone and would like to meet up with some "riding buddies".  I know from first hand experience that riding deep into RAC land by myself  isn't exactly the smartest thing I can do.  Riders can use this thread as a way to meet up with others, maybe even have a few planned "get togethers" a year where a bunch of us meet up and ride, grab some grub and then a few drinks after the day is over.  
       
      Ok, so that I my idea, I hope some others are interested.  Lets see where this goes.

      We're headed to Doublin Gap on Saturday this time. Forecast is shaping up good so far.
