Photos from Michaux SF Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania State Forests are GREAT places to ride!!!, I've been doing so since 1975.



Michaux State Forest (pronounced Me- sho) is in south central Pennsylvania. I grew up on roads like this. I get back here as often as I can/

An excellent informational post from towpro:

ATV Trails http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/forestry/atv/D01_ATV_1.pdf
But remember, the ATV trails are only for ATV's (not motorcycles. Not even Street Legal Motorcycles!)
All-Terrain Vehicles are defined as follows:
1. Class 1 ATV – A motorized off-highway vehicle, which travels on three or more inflatable tires and has a maximum width of 50 inches and a maximum dry weight of 1000 pounds.
2. Class 2 ATV – A motorized off-highway vehicle, which travels on three or more inflatable tires and has a width which exceeds 50 inches or a dry weight which exceeds 1000 pounds.

Recommended Parking (for the ATV trails)
parking lots located at Big Flat along Shippensburg Road about 1-1/4 miles north of its intersection with Route 233 and on Piney Mountain along Bendersville Road south of Pine Grove Furnace State Park.

Yup, I am a lucky human being.
Enjoy the thread. :)

At least the temps are to get into the 40's over the next 10 days, so hopefully it will melt quickly.

UGH.... yeh.. similar down here...
100% chance of freezing rain today.... bigass green/blue blob headed our way.

Well- I made it

This was my second time ever going to Michaux. I started at Rattlesnake run road and drove northward. Last Weekend I did it in my Jeep with my son. This week I went solo on the 950Adv. It was almost clear of ice and snow. (Almost). it was a little tricky in a few spots but the knobbies helped out.
Here are some pics
