I haven't found too much yet. There are some state forest roads that are pretty much just dirt roads that get muddy. One of my friends from home went here and says there are tons of jeep trails. I'm trying trying to get him to come up one weekend to show them to me.

I am about 10 miles from you. Mt holly Springs. There arent many legal places to go. The dirt roads are probably on state forest lands. Off of the roads is illegal so be careful.

Yeah, that's what I figured with those roads. I know the main dirt road/trail is legal since there are signs posted saying so. But all the off shoot trails that look fun are gated off.

Im from carlisle and used to work in shippensburg Delivering doors and windows so I drove all over from hagerstown to harrisburg. Im sure there are some good places we could find to go wheeling. There's so much open country your bound to find a nice trail if you drive around. Just gotta hope its not on private land

Well SOB Chambersburg'ers and Ship people. I live in Chambersburg too. We have our own little gang here. I drive a lifted Charcoal WK with a jeepfourm decal on the back.

I work at Letterkenny. Some weekend here that's nice, I'm going to hit the dirt road that runs from pleasent hall and runs along the top of the mountain that borders the depot. It ends up in St. Thomas/Edenville.

I wouldn't mind finding a trail or two myself to see what my IFS can do

Im in carlisle and I used to deliver to letterkenny often when I worked in shippensburg. Let me know when your hitting the trails. My 4" RC lift and 33's are at my house waiting to be put on the next chance I get home from school and I need somewhere to test it out

Money makes the world go round and my Jeep drains my bank account down

No but I'm an alumni !!! Played FB for Rocky Rees !!! We used to go up to a place called "The Wall" which were some dirt/forrest roads up to the location. We would then "study" there

Hey there guys. We've started a new "All Breed" Jeep club to help fill the void in South Central PA and Western MD. Check out www.blueridgejeepers.org

We have Jeep events from monthly cruise ins to beginner & intermediate offroading. We're still working on our 2011 schedule which will include some trips to Rausch Creek and many other Jeep related activities. We've got some great people involved and we're always looking for more participants. Check it out if you'd like.
