    I have 6 on Road loops mapped out in Basecamp that could be ridden while at this event. They are all about 100 miles long and begin and end at the Somerset County Courthouse.
    PM if you'd like the files.

    There are. I'm not personally familiar with a lot but with a Gazetteer or Google maps I'm sure you could entertain yourself. Lot's of State Forest roads, small farm roads etc..
    There are usually some other Dual Sport riders there. I'm sure you could tag along.

    If you're considering a visit to Fallingwater during our campout be sure to make your reservation before hand. You can NOT walk in and purchase a ticket........

    My schedule is up in the air for that weekend, but would love to come at the last minute. Is there availability to register directly at the event?
