Just found this in a newsletter I get from AARA (Americans for Responsible Recreational Access). Nice to see an addition to the Hatfield-McCoy area in neighboring W.Virginia. 8-)

OHV Recreation is Good for the Economy
We have written before on how the Hatfield-McCoy OHV Trail System in West Virginia is contributing to the economic revival of that part of the state. Well, the anthracite coal region in eastern Pennsylvania has taken note and efforts have in recent years have resulted in the creation of another OHV riding area. Called the Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area (AOAA), this riding area encompasses more than 7,000 acres with hundreds of miles of trails for OHV recreation. To learn more about their actual location and hours of operation, you might want to check out their website:

Might have to check this place out one of these days. I still haven't made it to H/McC yet. I've only been talking about it for the past 10 years. I'll get there eventually ... even if it's in a Hoveround. :D

This place is not too far from where many of the meet & greets have been :idea: you could make a nice mini vacation down in PA.

We rode these areas years ago when it was free (and maybe illegal) When these pay to ride parks came in and posted everything most of us sold our quads because we were not going to pay for what was free, and we were getting a little too old.
