They are absolutely making progress and we all owe the people behind it a big thank you given the scarcity of places like this in our area.
Agreed. Isn't Rausch Creek relatively close to there?

Rausch is not that far miles wise but I think it might take up to an hour to get there as either you go through small back roads or you go long way around to be on highway.

If AOAA does what they plan, Rausch is going to see real loss of business IMO. AOAA planning to cater to broader range of activities and have much better facilities.

I've run the property twice with my club. It's very close to opening and is going to be a great destination. I will continue to support both Rausch and AOAA and foresee this attracting off road community from all across N America to little old NEPA.

As far as I know, it's legal, there aren't any signs anywhere saying you can't. I'd like to see if anyone would be interested in meeting up and wheeling, exploring the town, etc. Let me know!

Here is some footage from the day, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEla...e_gdata_player
looks pretty cool, i had no idea there were even trails up that way, i always just figured it was a ghost town on fire, did you see anybody in the town? i heard theres like 2 or 3 people that refused to leave even tho it was on fire.

There are 2 residents left that I know of, it's just 2 random houses that look pretty nice. It's definitely worth the drive IMO. It's nothing too serious to wheel, just trails and mud puddles.
