Where about in S.Central, Pa? I live in Mechanicsburg. Wifey, our daughter, & I have been taking 1/2 day trail rides but can't explore as much as we would like because we haven't had another rig in case we should get into a situation.

Hanover, where you riding? we got a trails rd thread that is in delta though. I have rode threw the Michaux state Forest i have a 93 Zj with 5.5" lift and front long arms but i recently ripped a upper control arm bracket off the body so im kinda out of service till i get it welded or upgrade to rear long arm. Also got a 94 Zj with around 2" wich is our DD but is still very capable. whats up with your Jeep? have you bin to Rausch Creek yet?

I am about 15 mins from you, Mt Holly Springs(just south of carlisle). I have a frankenstein cj5 and I am building my wife a soa yj. That probably will not be finished until summer.
Other than rausch creek and the dirt roads around michaux I dont know of any legal wheeling.

I have heard of Trails Rd & watched videos on Youtube...definitely a trip I would like to take. We have been going up to Mount Holly Springs & wheeling on Ridge Road. There are several trails off of the main run just wide enough for a vehicle...but not something to do alone. Never been to Rausch Creek but would like to plan a trip. Also would like to head to Centralia, PA, & plan to return to Butler, PA for Bantam Festival. Youtube has been a good source for offroad destinations.
I have an '01 TJ Wrangler with a 4" lift, 33s, quick disconnects on front suspension, & I think some drivetrain work.

How far are you from PA state line? How much of a notice would you need? Any trails in Maryland worth making the trip for?

I guess about 20 min from the line and for a Sunday trip a days notice would work.

Saturdays are a little harder so about a week.

So far, Sunday has been the day of choice for wheeling. Centralia, Rausch Creek, Trails Rd, or something like that would probably be planned for a Saturday. Any good trails around your local area?
