Here's info some of you will be interested in!!
Thank you for your interest in the OHV trail opportunities at the Rock Run Recreation Area. The park has had a considerable number of requests from the public for trail riding at RRRA. The wait is over!
Volunteers from several local clubs have spent countless hours at the park to provide you with a safe, legal wheeling experience. The trail system is still relatively small by offroad park standards, but the response by those running the trails already has been extremely positive. Weâ€™re already working to secure more area to expand the trail network. We feel that the majority of trail rides would be limited to one day, with limited exceptions. On site primitive camping will be available for those instances.
The members of the Advisory Committee (http://wpa4xtrac.org
) will be coordinating all trail rides; please do not contact the park for OHV information (they will direct you back to us). The committee will hold three distinct levels of trail difficulty. The dates are as follows: Aug 30, Sept 20, Oct 4/5, Oct 25, Nov 22, and Dec 20
. The WPA4XTRAC will provide trail guides. Trail rides are limited to 40 participants. Pre-registration for all events is required
We will offer three trail rides each day: green/low blue, blue/low black, and upper black. We do not have a red trail rating, but we certainly have trails that would garner a red rating at other parks. The trails were cut with smaller SUVs in mind (such as Jeep Grand Cherokees). Full size vehicles will find the trails to be very tight. Suggested equipment is as follows:
Green/low blue: stock vehicles and those with a mild lift (15 vehicles per trailride)
Blue/low black: 33â€? tires and at least one locker (10 vehicles per trailride)
Upper Black: 35â€? tires(minimum requirement), two lockers, and winch. Body and drivetrain damage are very possible. (15 vehicles per trailride)
Additional required equipment for all vehicles is as follows:
1.) Have solid recovery points on the front and rear of the vehicle.
2.) Have a capable tow strap â€“ no metal hooks or chains.
3.) Have an operational fire extinguisher.
4.) Have properly installed seat belts for all passengers.
5.) Have a lifting jack capable of lifting the vehicle's tire off the ground.
6.) Have a fullsize spare tire compatible with the other four tires.
7.) Have tools available to change a tire.
8.) Have a standard First Aid kit.
To register for one of our trail rides, please include your name, address, phone number, trail selection, club (if applicable) and general vehicle specifics to firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost is $25/day plus $5 for passengers. Primitive camping is $10, and you must notify us 1-week prior to camping. Staging for trailrides begins at 0900, with a short driversâ€™ meeting following.
