Beaver Falls PA (Blackhawk) to Negely, OH ride report

Recommended Posts

Today Bill & I left my house in Blackhawk hoping to find trails between Blackhawk High School and Negely, OH. We were very sucessful!! We put on a total of 56 miles and most of it was off road.

Let me back up a little. Last week I met some kids on dirt bikes in the trails behind the Blackhawk Golf Course. They told me they can ride from the high school to Negely, OH on trails. So I had to find these trails. For the past week leading up to this ride I've been searching out the trails. I found a good bit of them, but during this ride we found a lot more! There is still a gap between the trails, but I'll find them eventually.

Click here for a picture of the trails I've found so far

And click here for the pictures I took during the ride

Nice pics. I recognize some of them. I live just off 168, near the game lands. I've ridden to negley twice in the last month. Mostly trails, Had to hit the road a few times. I don't have a dual sport, but thats never stopped me. Anyway just wanted to say Hi, and nice pics.

Nice pics, how difficult is the overall ride, and how rutted and mudded up are the trails? Any posted properties?

Like all trails around here, its mostly quad riders. So you'll have your "quad" ruts here and there. Especially on the east part of the trails. Most of the Western trails near the ohio boarder are big. Big enough for a 4x4.

These trails are great when its dry, but when its wet, they get real "slickery".

If anyone wants to ride them, I'd be happy to be your tour guide.

Real nice ride report. Did you have to cross the creek, and if so how did you get across? If I didn't live so far away I would take you up on the offer to do the ride.

Scott_321,

I just crossed the small creeks, nothing big. But even the big creek is easy to cross when the water is low. We've had a lot of rain lately.

spishack4433,

I'd say its about 5 1/2 hours from pottstown. not worth the ride out here.

      I'm currently active military and have 4 years to decide on what to do when I get out. I have post 9/11 gi bill so I can go to college or technical school for free,  and I love the northeast and saw there's a good amount of mx tracks up there, good roads for motorcycles,  and excellent mountain biking. 
      I'm here for any input on good jobs up there that some of you have, I'm currently looking at real estate but they often work weekends.  So if you have a job that you don't hate going to everyday please let me know what you do and if you want to say the good and bad parts of it.
       
      thanks in advance

      So I'm starting to get a bit sick of riding the same old stretches of quad/sxs trails along the mass/NY border, and am looking to stretch my dualsport's legs a bit more in New England. 
      I know there's plenty of legal riding in the Western Mass state forests as well as class four roads in VT, I'm hoping there are some well traveled riders who can give me some recommendations for technical bike oriented trails in the area, or point me to riding groups who seek out such things.

      MCI is pleased to announce we have been working our butts off to create what we feel is the best Stump Jumper in quite some time! We first took the opportunity to (again) hold a Fall Sand Run. What that means to you is a more pleasant enduro experience. Pretty colors, no bugs, and virtually zero over-heating of the bikes/you. The fall is the best time of the year to ride, so come ‘on out and pin that thing!

      First on the agenda, we took a long hard look at NOT sending you down 539 in the morning so you know what that means… you’re going to get something a little warmer, a little “slower” to start the day. Trust us, we engineered things so you can start you day by testing your time keeping skills. No ridiculous “Tricks” that waste your whole day, just a fun way to show all you know how to get the 00/00!

      After the “warmer” morning you are going to be treated to an amazing route that crisscrosses the wonderful forest known as Bass River. The majority of your day will be filled with fun, flowing, smooth, clean pathways that have been painstakingly maintained by the elite MCI strike force. All you old MX guys, does the words “MX special tests” mean anything to you??? Ah yes, I can hear the rev-limiters popping now… If you come out of Bass River at the end of the day without a smile welded on your face, I’d recommend selling you dirt bike and taking up knitting.
