Yeah, I'm about an hour from York. We ride up in the coal areas, Trevorton, Mt. Carmel, St. clair. Also we ride on the state trails. Center county we have our camp and thats right near Bloody skillet trails. There are state trails in Gettysburg we went there once, it was ok really rocky. We are going to Hatfield for the first time in the end of April.

I have been there twice and loved it. hated the drive From indianapolis but loved the trails. Second time there they opened the towns up to quads so we could go in, get a bite to eat, gas up, and relax.

I'm not 100% sure but I think you have to drive. I looked at the map and its about 20 miles on the road from one to another, and your only allowed to ride in town limits on the road. Thats not to say there isn't other ways to get from trail to trail. Locals that know the area might be able to.

I got bought the maps from VV mapping for my GPS. They look great, they also send nice paper maps with. The only bad thing is when viewing the VV mapping maps you can't see the topo infomation like elevation. The streams and roads are there just not the elevation info. It includes all the trail systems in Hatfield and Mccoy.

Just got back from Hatfield Mccoy, and just wanted to report the trail maps worked great well worth the money. Only problem I found was two of the trail numbers were wrong, but the actual trails were dead on.

also in this area, esp. in theBenezette PA area you can easily see the PA Elk Herd which has many World Class Bulls.

also some ATV trails on PA national forest in the western part of the state.

this is a great ATV trip with World Class attractions. me and mine are going as soon as I get the ol' Ladyand son their own quads, probably in August.

--------------------------------------

No you can't. There are different trail heads that you ride from. The trail heads are spread out over a pretty wide area. Some allow you to ride into town, some have no towns around them. The Rockcastle trail system is near Gilbert and Man. You can ride into either town, Gilbert is at one end of the system and Man is at the other.

They usually run the dozer over the trails in June, and the trails are in good shape. After a couple of months, they get pretty beat up from all the traffic, So, you can expect them to be a bit rocky. I'd recommend Rockcastle to anyone coming down..

The riding down here is awesome. I came here from Michigan where there wasn't any riding within 4 hours or so. Now, we ride 36 miles from my house...it's awesome.

Also, you can check out burning rock atv. It's a private place, and around 8000 acres to ride on. I hear it's pretty good and I believe it's cheaper for out of towners. Another thing to consider is that it's not too far from the highway, whereas some of the Hatfield trails are out in the boonies.

You have to drive the trail system's are to far apart to ride from one to another. But several trail have city access to ride around in town to get gas and food but you must return to the same trail system not another. As for the GPS map's I don't really know how often they up date the map's but every time I've been there the trail's changed and the maps where different. They have updated map's at the trail head.
