My brother and I took a trip this past weekend to Willow Hill (http://www.willowhillcampandtrail.com) and Rock Run (http://www.rockrunrecreation.com). It was supposed to be a larger crew but people dropped out last minute. We drove out to Willow Hill Sat morning then later on my dad dropped off my 11 year old brother with his LT80 and he rode with us for the rest of the day. We camped at Willow Hill then took off for Rock Run in the morning. I rode my '01 YZ250 and my brother was on the '86 CR125.

Willow Hill - Fannetsburg, PA - Approx 8 miles of trails - $30 per rider per day, $20 for one camp site - people we very nice. There was about 6 or 7 people there all day Sat. The trails were in decent shape, mostly hard packed and a couple puddles. All trails are one was so there is no worry about coming up on someone heading the othe way. We thought that they had full out MX tracks like the one we rode in Busco but it's more regular trails connected in a track style shape with a couple little jumps. We stayed away from the black stuff because the map said "tires and logs" which I was not ready for on my first trip on a dirt bike. Overall it was a good experience, kind of small, but good for a quick day trip and it was perfect for my bro on his LT80.

Rock Run - Patton, PA - Approx 80 miles of trails - $18 per rider per day or $30 for 2 days, $10 for one camp site, $10 sticker needed for non-DCNR registered vehicles which is good for the year - people were very nice and helped us out with air when we had to patch a tire. There was probably 20 or so people riding on Sunday but we never ran into anyone on the trails except for the main roads. This place has a great setup. It has main roads (at least 20 ft wide) which go throughout the property and regular trails throughout. It was nice to be able to choose any trail we wanted and eventually be able to find a main road to take us back quickly or to top out the bikes. Most trails are pretty rocky but it is manageable. It was a little rough on the dirt bikes at first but once we got used to it we were fine....pretty much a non-issue on a quad. I actually think Rock Run is better than Lost Trails was as far as rocks.

I've rode Rock Run, Willow Hill, Lost Trails, DCNR public trails (quads only) and I think Rock Run is easily some of the best trail riding within about 5 miles of me. I still need to check out Mountain Ridge and some of the coal properties but no doubt Rock Run is a legit place and has some of the best prices available. :thumbsup:

I didn't get any helmet cam footage because my EPIC action cam accidentally went through the wash on Fri night so I wanted to make sure it was dried out for a few days before turning it on. I wish I would've taken more pics but I couldn't find my camera and didn't want to bring my phone on the trail (already used insurance and warranty once) but here is what I have.

This is at the camp site at Willow Hill:



We had to put a new clutch cable on the CR Sun morn when we arrived, then we headed to the new Yamaha trails only to get a flat on the CR. Here is our "work bench" setup with work seats on either side:

Here is a vid of me the first time we went to rock run. That's one of the main roads.
