Dirt and mud wanted: Central PA preferred

Hey NorEasters-

A couple friends and I are planning to meet for a weekend of riding in Central PA in 2 weeks. None of us have ridden the area so we're looking for suggestions.

We would like to do 3 days of riding/camping. We're fine with carrying our gear or setting up a base camp. We'll all be on dual sports and would like to explore some scenic areas and as much challenging off road/jeep trails as possible. Twisty pavement is welcome too but a whole trip of pavement and normal dirt roads is not what we're after. Some of the crew have bike options to choose from, between 350 KTMs to 650s, and 1200s on knobbies. Depending on what the route shapes up to be we'll pick the best bikes for the jobs.

So, does riding like this exist in Central PA? If so, all gps files, waypoints, campsites, destinations and tips are greatly appreciated!

Thanks and cheers!
Malcolm

Check out Bald Eagle and Rothrock state forest. There tons of gravel and dirt roads and a few trails too but they may be a bit much for the bigger bikes

Thanks Gundy! We'd actually prefer to hit some tougher routes on small bikes so these suggestions could work.

Search "Bald Eagle Bastards", on YouTube, for some footage of the type of riding available within the Bald Eagle State Forest.
