There is a place near me, in Kopple, PA called Mines and Medows.

Its not a huge place but they have a lot of differant types of riding. There are rock crawls, hill climbs, mud pits. The trails are marked good and it's pretty well maintained with some camping on site for guys out of the aria.

I have never just gone over for the day, the local VFW has a poker run there every year and there are some other events i have been to. They even have a guided mine tour on the quads. It's nothing special but it was interesting riding my quad through a pitch dark mine.

Its a good time, i usually make it over once or twice a season

My buddy hit it twice last year and had a good time. I plan on hitting it at least once this year, I'll let you know when we head down that way if you want.
Are there any local trails your way? Just asking because my buddy's dad lives in Zelienople and now they are down to just riding his dad's property.

I live right outside of Zelie and there is absolutely no riding around here anymore. There used to be a huge place to ride out by the airport in Zeile, but someone bought it all up and bulldozed the trails off. It was a shame, lot of good riding in there back in the day

Mines and Meadows is a fun time, Like i said it's kinda small when you compare it to Hatfield but it still has plenty of riding for all skill levels.

I make sure i am there for the Franklin Twp VFD poker run every year, they have venders and food and prizes. Its usually pretty crowded. Last year it was raining and muddy. The place was still jammed with people.

No, i don't seem to make it much further north than Butler Co. I have friends with a farm there and they are near the Bruin Poker run so we do that too.

Mostly i ride at their farm, i haul down to Powerline Park in St. Clairsville OH for the rides on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. (a total blast for those that have never been there), we do the Slippery Rock Dunes once or twice a summer, and i have been to Hatfield McCoy.

This summer i plan on heading to Wellsville Oh, at least once, i have friends that go out all the time and say it's awesome.

Ill have to head up north sometime, I hear SnowShoe is a good time and i have never been up to ANF.

Gives me something to look forward to.

If you can spare the holiday weekend Powerline Park is prob. the ride i look forward to the most. It's huge, and there is a staggering amount of quads, bikes, mud trucks, sand rails. There are trails for everyone, there are trails for just the ATV's and dirtbikes.

I think it's the entertainment as much as the riding that keeps me going. I think it's 30 bucks for the whole weekend, there is a mall and plazas right down the road as well as a car wash that allows riders (something you almost never find).

It's actually right off of Interstate 70 about 15 min west of Wheeling WV. From here it's a hour and a half or two hour drive

Ya it's only open Memorial Day Weekend and Labor Day Weekend

The first pic is of the Mud Truck Pit, it's a money event for the trucks, the second is my friend on his YFZ450 on top of one of the hills, the third is a pic deep down in the woods on one of the trails. The guys in the pic are just some people we met while we were there and rode with them for a while.

Powerline is also host to a GNCC event in October every year. My friend on the 450 tried it twice and i ran his pit stall, it was a wild time
