Every year we travel out to Potter County for a long weekend of camping and riding. The campground is connected to the state trail system which is about 43 miles of trails, mostly old logging roads. The trails also connect to Lyman Run state park which is the only state park in PA that allows ATV access. New for this year is the lower campground in the state park is open for ATV usage. The trails are even open for night riding except for the connection to the state park which closes at sunset. In addition, this area is part of the "Northcentral ATV initiative" which most of the township roads surrounding the area are also open to ATV usage. You can travel to different towns and eventually the other state trails in the area will be connected. We put on almost 200 miles in the weekend and there is a country store in a small town called Germania that sells home made cheese which is excellent.

Sounds like a blast mike. Would you know the distance from nyc or the cost? You didn’t leave a name or anything. Just a location.

We stay at the Potter County Campground

http://www.pottercountycamping.com/index.html

Nearest town is Coudersport. There are a few hotels along Route 6 near the state trail system. The main trailhead is located right off route 6.

You can also stay at Lyman Run state park, the lower campground is now open to ATV's

You can download a map with the current legalized township roads from here

http://www.cmatva.org/nv/index.php/ncpa-initiative

You will notice on the map, say to get to Cross Forks from the state trail system, there are small gaps in legalized roads. These are state routes, so you do have to make a few not so legal "jumps" on these roads to get to the next township road. These gaps will be closed, in the meantime, the cops will overlook someone using that route to get to the next legal road. Make sure you have a helmet and eye protection on or you will be stopped.

The proposal includes connecting Bloody Skillet to Whiskey Springs, a study was done and found that to make the connection will cost 16-20 million. So for now that part is held up trying to find funding for it. To make this connection will need about 30 miles of trail built. The town of Renovo would be between the two trail systems. They already took the step and opened their roads to ATV usage, but for now, it goes nowhere.

      This week, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) plans to outline proposed policy changes for ATV trails on state forest lands.  They will also be seeking public comment.
      Pennsylvania has more than 260 miles of ATV trails in state forests. The department is reviewing its policy to respond to increasing demands for riding opportunities and well as interest from local governments in expanding tourism.
      “The purpose of the policy is to provide guidance to DCNR when acquiring, developing and managing lands for ATV use by the public,” Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn said.
      There had been a moratorium on new trail development, but the policy revisions now authorize DCNR to consider new ATV trails and connectors on state forest lands.
      “New ATV trails will be considered, while still balancing the protection of natural resources as outlined in the Environmental Rights Amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution, and the needs of all types of recreational users on DCNR lands,” Dunn said.
      In a 2016 survey of ATV users, more than 4,800 responded with many indicating a strong desire for more long-distance trails. Pennsylvania has around 285,000 registered ATVs. On state forest lands, ATV riding is allowed only on designated trails.
      Public comment will be taken at a meeting in Harrisburg Wednesday, January 22, from 10 a.m. to noon in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson State Office Building. Written comments can be submitted to [email protected]
      The deadline to submit comments is March 27.
      More information about ATV riding is on the DCNR website.

      I have a 2004 Polaris Trail Boss 330 and I want to eventually fix it up if possible, but the thing is the transmission or Gearbox that allows you to shift into forward and reverse and such isn't connect to the engine at all, it isn't even bolted into the frame. Anyways the Secondary Driven clutch is missing. The ignition was busted so I switched it out and tried to hook up power to it and the lights wouldn't light up and it wouldn't try to let me start it with the electric starter. 
       
      So I bridged the connectors on the starter solenoid and it cranks the motor. I was wondering if anyone knew why the dash lights don't work or any of the buttons. I did find a cable disconnected I have a picture of maybe someone can tell me what it's supposed to be connected to. It has 3 wires going to the connect Green Purple Red. I'll enclose a picture of it and where it is connected on the wiring harness.

      I just watched this video I made ten years ago.  It made me laugh.  I was riding a 1985 Honda ATC 200X.  It's hard to film yourself so I had to position the camera to film me.  May flies out th wazoo, but I HAD to ride.  I hope you get a laugh.
