there is another "puddle" back there...its off a side trail by the abandonded shack. there's a few ways to get out of it, and one of the ways is a steep hillclimb. I tried it, got to the top and the front wheels made it but couldnt get the back end up and over.

I went there today and was kind of dissapointed. I was hoping for more trails than just the main one. Lots of water puddles, not much mud. I didn't even need to put it in 4WD.
Does anyone know of some half decent trails in the Lehigh Valley area?

Check out my thread Lehigh Valley Meet and Greet.

If it rolls, floats, flies or shoots, runs on gasoline or gunpowder, goes fast or shoots a big bullet and makes lots of noise, thus producing torque and recoil its cool.

Do you want 6,000 acres of land open to OHV's?

It's open apparently now as one of my buds took his rubi out there 2 weeks ago. Said it was good & muddy. Pipeline was done, should I say re- done. I'm looking to head out there soon & check it out again, see if it's been posted or not etc.

Hi all! The GF (and the Jeep) and I went out to do some recon today...

I will report that it is all open through the pipeline. It was DRY with only three puddles the whole length.

FYI I went in on the Wind Gap side. And since I didn't have anyone with me I stuck to the main trail.

You can see from the pics that the pipeline is open to go down, but the top is gated. On the other side of the pipe there are brand new posted signs on each side. Not the trail itself, but anywhere off the trail is marked.

This was my first time through, so I'm not sure how it is normally, but I ran all the way down expecting to be able to link up with 512 on the other side. NOPE! Took one way off to the right of the fork and found a brand new gate with a Do Not Enter Private Property sign. Had to turn around and try the other way to the left...NOPE! Also blocked off.

So, after turning around and running the entire way back we made it out!

No mud, very little water, bumpy as all heck in the CJ, and still a fun afternoon. Hope this helps if anyone is still interested!

Get off 33s first exit for wind gap... make a left... make a right onto 8th street.. follow all the way back and it turns to gravel.
