He has it at Crolli's right now, or at least i think he does because the throttle kept freezing so he might be taking the tracks off of it for a little bit. I'm going down there this weekend so i'll check it out.

There are about ten of us that go out every weekend. We've been going since the first snow fell and putting on between 60 and 75 miles a day. Up til this weekend most of the trails were icy because of the snow getting packed down by the machines thawing during the day and freezing at night, so we use the winches quite a bit.

I went dahn to clarion this weekend and rode throughout the blizzard. Got about a foot in clarion Fri night into Sat morn. With stock tires, at about 2AM Fri had some problems getting stuck in the drifts (had nothing to do with the beers). Threw on some chains and was going everywhere the 4x4's were going, until the chains got shifted trying to get up a steep climb up from clarion river. Need to get some better tires before going back out in a foot of snow.

We got just the right amount of snow in and around meadville. To much for the sport bikes-just perfect for the 4x4s. Very Happy

Perfect snow amount here in saegertown, been riding my trails across my house and keep finding random snowmobile trails mixed with atv tire tracks. still wishing spring was here though. and admin, when i read your posts, all i can think of when i hear millcreek is areas like the mall, and busy crowded streets. there quite a few trails and riding areas up your way?

I actually live kind of by the mall, I live on the other side of Peach, in Timbercreek Estates if you know where that is. But I have a rather large backyard being in Milcreek, around 3 acres that we have a few jumps on. Other then that I live right on the power lines which you can ride forever, but the neighbors do not like that much lol. I usually ride down in Marienville and Warren

Admin,

those trails around you hook up the the cherry street ext trails? I keep hearing if you have a place to park you can ride quite a bit out to the south. I have yet found a place to park though or anyone who knows where.
I ususlly ride Marienville, Rocky Gap, and Majestic.

I ride marienville, rockygap, and timberline and want to hit up majestic. actually there are some pretty nice trails right behind tractor supply, even large 4x4 trucks can go back there. There are also some behind home depot that meet up at some point with the powerlines

Using google earth the trails by TSC,SAMS,Giant Eagle could be a descent play area. I know I usually see a State Trooper sitting at the dead end above Target so if someone would complain I guess we would get to meet who's on duty pronto!
The ones behind Home Depot look much larger.
