    Or Northen WV. If so where do I get maps. I have a R 1150 GS not looking for anything too extreme.

    Thanks

    Allegheny National Forest. It's closed for winter now, but some of the trails there would probably make for some enjoyable riding for you. They give you a really good map when you buy your permit and the trail-heads have maps at them. Sorry to report ANF will not open again until Memorial Day week-end. If you like dirt roads, head for north eastern Venango County and Forest County.

    Does anyone have tracks for Allegheny NF? Not interested in the off road trails you pay for. Just accessible dirt roads/trails.

    I live in the middle of the ANF, lots of dirt road riding, good single track riding, if you know the area or local law enforcement. If you need a guide, give me a yell, If you don't mind riding with a KTM Super Enduro.

    Lots of great riding around here. Anything from ADV to hard single track. I'm headed down into WV Friday morning for a couple of days. Plenty of backroads and trails to explore. Should be a great weekend.

    Here is a nice loop in the Laurel Mtns. A good mix of gravel, paved and some rocky trails.

    Thanks for sharing! Looks like an interesting area.
    This is only about 2 hrs from me ill just might check this area out come spring.

    I noticed you crossed a few trails marked PWS trail system?
    is this open in the summer? and is it worth checking out.

    Thanks for the 7Springs Trail. I am semi-new to northern/western half of PA (Cameron County area). Just recently got myself a Garmin to go on my DRZ400. Any other good trail files people wouldn't mind sharing?

    Don't forget about us N.E. Ohio riders. I was at ANF last July. What a hoot! I definitely plan on going back at least one time this year.

    Here's my precision high detail map of the great riding in PA (though I've found most of them myself... have not seen any good 'ride maps'):
