Long Pine Reservoir, but NOT from the boat launch area. I am just a rebel like that.


You rebel you. Thanks for the input!!
The Rangers are great! I have yet to see one who wouldn't stop to help.
Last Saturday they were thick for some reason and I saw them looking for speeders with radar for the first time ever. Smart guys..One was sitting just off Ridge on one of those epic straightaways. Watch your asses!!! Park speed limit is 25.

Hey there RH
I don't have tracks, but you can find some in TowPro's TPAT, link on the first page of the thread.
Stop at the ranger station on 30 just east of 233 to get a map and a permit to camp.

I normally enter on Rattlesnake Run and exit when I feel like it. Hard to get lost in a park that's less than 10 miles wide.












Sand mining.
















Met a mess of new folks out crunching gravel in the last 2 weekends.









Just in case there was any doubt that I'm a JS7 fan boy....




Do you really need another shot of your bike?
HELLZ YEH!!

I haven't saved tracks from rides in Michaux because it isn't really that big. You could ride every road in a day, especially now when many roads are gated shut.

Use the link (a few pages back in this thread) to the official map, or better yet, pick up a paper map for free at one of the forest or park headquarters. Garmin and Google maps cannot compare with the official paper or online map for the Pennsylvania state forests.

Jeff (SEPARider) turned out some routes called "best of Michaux", which I converted to Tracks (or was it routes?)
Jeff's package also includes lot of information for everything from Fuel to food to parts.

Put you should be able to find the tracks in a link called out in this thread.

Another way to learn is show up to the Thursday Evening rides. I hope Denny host them again this year .

I might even have a bike up there next 2 weekends.

Just remember, you will probably see some dirt Trails, but your not allowed on them with a motorcycle. ATVs only.
Motorcycles are only allowed on roads that are open to automobiles.
