Anthracite Adventure Offroad Park (Northumberland County)

It seems like the Northumberland county OHV park has finally been approved. I saw where a group from Hummer forum was able to do a ride on the land and after looking into a bit more, it looks as though they are allowing groups to go there and are sort of showing people around what is there and what the park will have to offer.

So it got me thinking...if hummers can go up there and do some wheeling with the guy in charge of the property, why cant a bunch of us Jeepers do the same? So I'm throwing it out there to see if there's any interest on here of people heading up there to check it out. I have no idea what type of wheeling to expect, but I do know that its not too far away from where Paragon used to be, and well, Paragon was great.

Here's a link to their website --> http://www.anthraciteadventure.com/pages/

And I propose going either August 27th or 28th, to give them enough time to be ready. I wanted to do it earlier, but my summer is already pretty booked up and it looks as though the weekend of August 20-21st is no good because they teach ATV safety classes then. Once there is some sort of demonstrated interest of people on here that are interested in going, I figure I can make a call to the guy in charge up there and set everything up. So post in this thread if you can make it and what day would work best for you. There's a lot more info about the place on their website, but I've just know started to really look into it.

Matt, it was good running into you there, too. Small world, hahaha. And the Phils got a win so it was a good night. It didn't dawn on me till later, but aren't you a Mets fan though?

I'm going to place a call to the director up there later this week. Not sure if there will be fees associated with this run or what all would be involved, but I know people wheel up there all the time, its just more of a thing where if you don't know where you're going you'll end up on private lands. Hence, I think it would benefit us all to go with the person in charge.

And it's looking like Saturday AUgust 27th is what I'm shooting for.

I'll update more after I speak with the park director.

The 4x4 club I'm in has been down there on several occasions and has been involved in the public meetings to get it approved. though i haven't personally been able to get down there from what I've heard from them its a decent place and has lots of potential for moderate to heavy off roading. There's a lot of good scenery and rubbage for good poser shots as well

Count me as a maybe. If I go, I'll be in my conservative wheeling mode, though, as I'll basically be wheeling with axles that're already sold. Either way, I hope to make it. Just depends on when I get back from the cradle of civilization.

Not quite yet. The final public meeting is scheduled for July 6th at 6:30 at Shamokin Area High School Auditorium, 2000 West State Street, Coal Township, PA 17866. Anyone who can make the trip to show support for this project is encouraged to attend. I'm going to try to make it up with some members of NJJC.

My understanding is that so far only formalized clubs who have their own liability insurance are being invited up at this time. Mostly it is for scenic tours showing the potential of the property, although there have been some trail cutting days in the past. I don't know how strict they are on the formal club or insurance thing, so it's certainly worth checking out.

I was up there in March with NJJC. The property is over 6,000 acres and they are trying to get rights to another 3,000 acres, so the place is huge. The ride was primarily a scenic tour of the extents of the property with stops at what will be some of the featured areas, such as a lake, a massive and famous geological formation called "The Whaleback," and a preview of the different types of terrain. At the time we visited there was only one rock garden open and some mild hill climbs, but a lot of land to cover. It was a full day of mild wheeling, except for the rock garden, which was a good challenge (I had to pull line, another rig taco'd his tie rod, another bent a rim, etc...).

I could do either but would prefer the 27th, as the 28th is NJJC's monthly RC trip. RC is about 30 minutes from AAOA, so you could head to RC on Friday, camp or stay at one of the motels in Pine Grove, go to AAOA one day and RC the other to make it a full weekend.

You won't need lift or skids unless you want to do the optional rock garden, unless they've developed more areas since March. We had a bone stock WJ with A/T tires and it kept up.

Not necessarily. I'm in Rockaway Twp, depending on timing we can meet and drive up together.

Putting together some info right now. Spoke with Kathy in the planning section and trying to set a date. I need a better idea of who can make it.

Due to Ocean City Jeep Week and a busy August month of wheeling, I'm leaning towards moving this ride to Saturday, September 10th. Who can make it?

If the first weekend works better let me know.

Does that mean we're good to go for a run out there? This could be interesting.

There ain't nothin like that new trail smell.

Absolutely 100% good to go.

Also, is anyone interested in having the day's lunch catered? They offer that as an option and it usually runs around $8-12 per person depending on what the caterers make up. She said they can make us anything from hot dogs and hamburgers to local foods, pasta salads, all sorts of stuff if we're interested. Depending on turnout, it sounds like a great idea to me.

So who can make it September 10th? I'll get the list going.

What's the daily land use fees?

I am very interested in this. I really hope it fits into my schedule. I am probable right now for 2 Jeeps.

As for the lunch, for $8-12 per person. That's a no brainer. It would cost me almost that much to pack a lunch and end up with a soggy Wawa sandwich.
