Trevorton

Hey anybody out there live near Trevorton? I have heard that they are cracking down on riding atvs at the hill climbs and the surrounding areas. Any truth to that? I'm looking to go up there in May and I need to know if you can still ride there.

Welcome to QUADCRAZY! I've never been there but heard of it. Here's a video from there I found on Youtube:

I believe that Treverton is part of RAC. If it is, then yes they are patrolling it now. You must purchase a RAC permit to legally ride their property. The local police are also cracking down on people riding thru parking lots and on roads. 16 people were cited in a 3 hour period trying to drive to a gas station. One guy got fined twice on 2 different machines.

thanks a bunch for the info. Yes RAC owns alot of ground in and around Trevorton. Do you know if there are any more permits available? We usually park at Locust junction and ride the trails to Trevorton.

Do you know if the hill climb area in Trevorton is allowing riders and parking vehicles with atvs?

The guys to ask about the climbs would be a group on Modded Raptor.com called the Coal Country Riders. I confirmed that part of Treverton is owned by RAC. If you don't have a RAC parking pass, you could be towed.

I e-mailed RAC yesterday. Due to the high interest in permits this year, they will most likely continue to issue permits past the 1000 mark.

I picked up permits yesterday, I'm #1014. Treverton and Locust Gap are indeed part of RAC. The bulk of their property is south of I-81. on the map I got it appears that they have a 15 mile long by 5 mile wide area there. The Treverton area is not all on the map, but it looks like it could be about 6000 acres there. They give you directions to a parking area in Treverton when you get your permit. You do have to display a parking pass in your tow vehicle or you could be towed.

Thanks a bunch. I guess I gotta take off from work and get up there for a permit before I get in trouble.

      I'm curious what all the ladies ride on this site and why!
      I ride a 2008 Yamaha Rhino 700. Just added a new roll cage, dual exhaust and some other things. Here are a few pics:


      I chose the Rhino because my arms and wrists get way too tired on a quad. I haven't tried a bike, but, I don't think my coordination would be good enough to handle that!
      I LOVE my Rhino though!!!!!!! It's the perfect machine for me.
      So, how about you????

      Title pretty much says it all.   After fixing my throttle body I had a look at the tires.  on my last ride my buddy hit a branch on his side wall with enough force to jar the quad off track.,  no Damage but I thought I would review mine.
      The discussion about what to bring with on the trail also got me thinking about my tire health.
      It looks like my rear tires are older, the front ones only really seem to have some knob wear and are in good shape.  I absolutely can't get new tires this year, but I still want to ride it and reduce my risk.  I am thinking of getting a couple of tubes for my rears sort of pre-emptively change them instead of having to do an urgent tube install on the trail.
      Then next year I will get 2 new rears and probably the year after get to new front leaving me 2 decent spares.
       
      I figure $50 in tubes is decent to reduce the risk until I can spend on new tires.
       
      Thoughts?

      Safety Is A Concern For Kids ATVs
      The family is into racing ATVs and now the children want to get in on the action. How do you start with someone who is too young to drive a car, but yet sees other children their own age charging through the woods racing an ATV? A tough decision for parents, but with a lot of planning and instruction your kids ATV can become a reality.
      Safety should be your first concern before getting the kids ATVs for their own use. You should plan on doing your research to make sure that you get the best kids ATV available for their age group and size. The research should include surfing the web and also by reading Consumer Reports—both of these will provide you with a tremendous amount of information on kids ATVs.
      It is recommended that the youngest kid ATV riders should have an ATV that has an engine with no more than 4.3 cubic inches. There are not too many choices at this size for kids ATVs, but you want to ensure that your child is not riding a machine that it too large for them to handle.
      As a concerned parent, you should check into the ATV Safety Institute. This group offers safety courses all over the country. The experienced instructors will teach you and your kids about pre-ride inspections, warm up exercises, braking, turning, and shifting. They also teach you about clutch and throttle control and about the importance of body position and simple maintenance. In addition they cover riding techniques and how to tackle obstacles, hills and different kinds of trails. All of these issues are important safety issues for your kids ATV riding.
      So, what are the features will your kid's ATV have? One company has an experienced team of ATV enthusiasts that work with you on your kids ATV to hand select the perfect one. Each ATV they have is designed with safety in mind and they offer a 4-point safety system which includes a throttle limiter, an emergency kill switch, a safety kill tether and a remote kill key. The kid ATVs are safe and they come with a 4 stroke engine, headlights, an electric start and disk brakes. This company that focuses on safety with kid ATVs is Motorxtremes. They want to make sure that every kids ATV is safe and that the rider follows all safety precautions.
      You should make sure that your kids ATV comes with all of the necessary additional safety equipment to make their ride as safe as possible. Every kid ATV rider should have a helmet with a full-face cover, goggles to keep dirt out of their eyes, gloves with finger and knuckle guards, a shirt with long sleeves and safety pads for their chest, shoulders, elbows and knees.
      Make sure you and your children know the rules of riding ATVs. While you can not ensure that your kids ATV rides will be completely accident free, you can help them by providing the best additional safety equipment available.
