    This month's ride will be at Rausch Creek Off-Road Park and will be in conjunction with CNC4x4. It will be the weekend of June 3-5. For those of you that went last year this is good news as your membership is still valid from last year! Rausch Creek is come of the best wheeling around with everything from mild to wild and rock gardens that seems to a half mile long! While it is quite a haul to get there, it is definitely worth it! The address is 453 Molleystown Rd. Pine Grove, PA.

    There is a $15.00 yearly membership that everyone, passengers over 15 included, must get.

    It is $40.00 a day for vehicle and driver. This is up slightly from last year.

    It is $7.00 a day for passengers over 15. This is waived if they are getting the membership for the first time that day.

    There is FREE primitive camping at the off-road park, but there are no amenities at all. It is a gravel parking lot with porta-potties. There is a dirt/grass area for tents, but no shade. This is where the Mozeley's and I will be staying. Park Information | Rausch Creek Off-Road Park

    If you want more amenities, there is

    Echo Valley Campground52 Camp Rd. Tremont, PA 17981 (570) 695-3659

    It is a Good Sam Campground and has a bathhouse and running water. The campsites are shaded and there is a small camp store and several other amenities. Their rates are listed on the website, but start at $30.00 a day for a tent site. This is where CNC will be staying. It's about six mile away.

    I will be heading up on Thursday and coming back Sunday, as will CNC. We will be riding Friday and Saturday. We will meet at the Camping Area at Rausch Creek before the ride to get lined up at 0900. We will have a brief meeting after the ride on Saturday.

    Please let me know if you are coming and which day you are arriving.

    Hope to see you all there!

    You can't hit the whole park on 33's, but there is more than enough there for you to do. The trails that are too much for 33's are pretty obvious from the start. There are 3000 acres covered with trails.

    Rausch Creek Troy, also, if you look at the pics of the last trip it will show the harder stuff. As you said, we were the "Big Tar" crowd. But the pics show the hardest parts, Most of which have bypasses.

    It is, and that one is actually not as hard as it looks, you just have to pay attention to the lines. That one is obvious from the start and easy to avoid.

    Man I love Rausch Creek, one of my favorite wheeling spots for sure. But their prices have gone up in the last 4 yrs! They've added more trails since I've been there and I did some of the blues in my Commander so 33s would be able to do most of it as he said. I wont be able to make it but if you hit the trails across the street let me know how they are. Last time I was there they weren't open yet, heard it was mostly mud/dirt/ off camber stuff..
