Jeep Jamboree @ Shamokin

Did anybody go on the Jeep Jamboree last weekend? Curious to hear about the trails. Were they varied and/or a challenge?

Ran Black trails on West side Friday and Black trails on East side Saturday. Highlights of West side was a nice rock garden and the "Trench". East side was probably a bit more intense with lots of nice rocky hill/stream climbs. Seems like a lot of potential at this location. Have attended Penn's Woods, Killington and Catskills before. Putting these trails in context with trails at those other Jamborees I would call these blacks 7-9 on the Jeep Jamboree scale. Was pretty dry. If wet going to be some real challenges.

I did Catskills twice and I think I can relate. Any clue as to when it will be open to the public?

They said probably not till next spring/summer. They are doing privately led rides now for groups. If you belong to a club or get some friends together, call them.

We had a group head up a few weeks ago and pre-ran some of the black Jamboree trails, it was my second time up there and the area has a ton of potential with a variety of terrains.

pics and video of our trip are here

What made Paragon so good? Was it better than RC?

Yes, no comparison. Trail system laid out better and fees were cheaper, for starters.

The couple of times I've been up there they have said it will probably be somewhere around $80-$100 for a yearly membership.
