Default Central Pennsylvania spots? besides Rausch

Does anybody frequent any parks besides rausch? Know of any OHV - friendly land owners or public trails in or near (within 100 miles) of State College or Altoona?

This is supposed to open - one of these days. It has been years since it was first announced.

What all do you have done to your jeep? There's a few river crossings around here and some decent trails. I'm actually still looking for trails myself

If you head north of Lock Haven, Sproul state forest has many miles of dirt roads. They are probably pretty difficult right now with all of the snow.

we do a trial called whitetail that leads out to kato. There is some hill climb areas and some really washed out areas. a decent amount of mud holes but you can go around almost all of them..

Not sure if the state game land roads are still around on top of Cresson Summit, but there used to be a fair amount of dirt roads to play around on up there - straight up old rt 22 from Hollidaysburg...

Is the Off-Road park still open in Patton? I've been reading "Do Work"'s build thread, and he had posted picks from there (can't remember the name).

EDIT - found it: http://www.rockrunrecreation.com/Default.aspx
