The two riding areas, 7 Mountains & Shade Mountain will remain open this fall. The District Office will pass this issue to the higher level authorities in Harrisburg. PaOHV has a meeting scheduled with the Secretary of the DCNR later this fall and will discuss the motorcycle riding issues. We owe a lot of thanks to everyone who wrote letters to the DCNR about this issue. Working together has paid off.

Glad to hear the good news Denny.

Sorry I couldn't hook up with you this past weekend TowPro, but as Jax said, we were riding some of the best Forest Roads VA and WV have to offer on Friday (137 miles) and Saturday (123 miles), much of the VA route we rode will be used for the Shenandoah 500 (500 kms/300 miles) AMA Dual Sport National on October 6th & 7th. Don't ask me why Jax but I'm actually feeling no pain today, what with only a 140 mile drive home on Sunday, followed by a really long, hot shower and a good nights sleep, the only thing that is sore are my two pointer fingers, I don't think I've ever used my clutch and front brake as much as I did on those rides! Hats off to the "Best Looking Man In Hinton!" for leading the way both days and to the "Best Looking Woman in Hinton" for providing some great grub, all while hosting a "Unique" group of ADV Riders!

they are forecasting leaf changes for Michaux between 10/20 and 10/31.
The wife said that if we have to take time off during the week, we will see the color this year

Sounds like a good plan. Lets pick a date, time and location to meet up and start the ride.

Let's split the difference and go with Saturday the 27th? Meet up at say 10:00 am?

Now pick the location.

We need to get Mr Michaux on board. Jeff took the time to document a complete Michaux riders guide including routes, and points of interest. Most extensive guide I have seen for any riding area

Paging SoPaRider, you around? :)

I'm not Jeff, but I think a foliage ride should hit all six of the designated scenic overlooks you can ride to in Michaux. Okay, Hammond's Rocks you have to walk about 100 yards from the side of the road to the overlook, but you get the idea.

The six overlooks you can ride to are (North to South) Spruce Run, Hammond's Rock's, Buzzard Rocks, Dark Hollow, Snowy Mountain and Valley View. If you are up for a hike (a pretty steep one at that) you could also hit Pole Steeple. That would be all seven of the scenic overlooks in the state forest in one day.

I can't make the 27th but may try to hit all 6 (or seven) on the 13th or 20th.

I may also try to hit all 6 rideable overlooks in Tuscarora State Forest during the fall foliage season this year. A man's gotta dream.

Sounds Excellent!!!
Don't know if I can get free though.

Warning at Buzzard Rocks... Last time I was up I was amazed at how many nails, screws and misc hardware and glass there was.... Idiots seem to have brought construction waste up there to burn.... glass is a problem at the overlooks... but I never saw so much rusty steel.

I've heard people fussing about the conditions of Ridge Rd at the north end being hard to ride. While I drove my Miata through it, I was going slow. So lets start at the bottom and go north and we can decide about the top end of Ridge Rd when we all get there.

Lets set two dates: Saturday the 20th and Saturday the 27th. We'll plan on both dates. Some folk will run it twice, some once. Weather can be fickle and that will play as well.

Lets meet at the McDonalds in Waynesboro, and plan on rolling out by 10:00am, going North. I'll try to be there at 9:00ish myself, for a disgusting breakfast. If one of you folk have a better breakfast meeting place, especially in Mt Alto, put it out instead.

Don't know about lunch locations, or after the ride hijinks. I'm limited with regards to night riding as I don't have a headlight at the moment.

If I did it right, this should show a draft route map:

Ah yes, the work of the Hoofdies.
