Central PA Tower City and Paragon

These two places are great. Tower City is about 9000 acres with an MX track right next door. You need to be a member or ride with one.


Paragon is also great. You don't need to be a member and you can take you Jeep on certain trails as well.


If you like tight rocky trails ( with other terrain as well ) these are great places to check out.


Hey, I wanted to ask a question. I've been to Rausch Creek and I think its a sweet track. I wanna check out TC, but was wondering if you can actually ride the bikes to the TC area, or is it a little bit of a drive?

Not anymore you can't, unless we get that part of the land back. But they did'nt wanted you to ride from one to the other anyway. And of coarse you would have to be a member of T.C.T.R.I. to do that.

You can ride at TC if you know a member and pay $30 for the day. Give me an e-mail sometime and I would be glad to show you the place.


While there are paths, you would be breaking the rules at both RC and TC if you did it.

There are a boat load of trails at Tower City and many miles between the two places - I wouldn't want to try getting from one to the other without someone familiar with the trail system.

Wow, just thinking about it has me wanting to go up there and ride.

Thanks. Definatly, I'll be dropping you an email. How are the conditions out there as far as remaining snow/mud at TC? I cant wait to get out there!!

No more snow, but lots of water coming off the mountain(which makes lots of mud) :). I was up on Sun. and some campsites are now creeks:crazy:


Hey Hitman, fellow Tower City Rock Chuck-er, how's it going.

TT Members:

Moderator Bill and I ride at Tower Often. Drop a PM if your looking for a ride.


Sounds good, I have rode with Bill,NHKevin,Mike68,Mcarp and some others from here. But I don't get to ride very much with Bill for as close as he is, I always seem to ride on different days than he does. We will all have to get together for some rides this year.

I have been working on getting my (free)camper ready to take up there to stay this year, it will be nice to have a home away from home. Can't wait for the big weekends, long rides and sitting by the camp fire(oh yeah, can't forget drinking BEER!). Give me an e-mail if you are heading up, and maybe we can get together. yz426f@msn.com

Talk to ya later!


I am goint up to TC this easter weekend. I have a campsite at the top of the hill. I know the trails pretty good but find new stuff all the time.

      Howdy! I'm looking for early season riding within driving distance. Ontario is still 4-6 weeks from riding and I'm itching....
      Advanced single trail rider, open to medium+ difficulty 4x4 / ATV trails, doesn't have to be single trail only.
      I'm an hour from the border, Ottawa, and good to drive 7-8 hours max to get a day or 2 of riding done...as far as Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, up the coast to Maine
      I've found the following locations so far that might fit the bill:
      https://readingoutdoors.com RAC/FRO - 175$ yearly pass only - daily pass coming in May
      http://www.aoaatrails.com AOAA - similar to RAC/FRO - good option!
      Any on this list you would remove?
      Did I miss any?
      Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

      Has anyone around New Jersey heard of Lepis Land? I found people talking on other forums about it and how riding there is by donation only. Does anyone have anymore information about it or a phone number to contact them?

      10/17/08 UPDATE! I posted more photos on page 2. Not all pictures are on page 1. I will constantly be adding more photos as I go along.
      Many of you have heard of my starting/idle problems with the 610. Carburetion has been ruled-out time and time again. I sensed something else was going on. The engine has never wanted to idle down, sounded like there was a load on it even in neutral. Since I had metal filings in my oil when I first got it, I have now decided to overhaul it and make everything ship-shape. It turns out that I was correct- there is some valve damage that I will talk about later.
      I don't like to take apart dirty engines and get the dirt inside 'em

      A little gross.

      My cleaning station:

      A little better now

      Clutch removal:

      after removing springs

      bottom of pressure plate

      everything looked decent as far as wear

      after removing plates

      basket after removing hub

      Area after removing basket.

      Removing the starter gear with snap ring pliers

      More to come. I'm uploading pictures of the case splitting, etc...
      I'll try to ease off on the photo-over-obsession. The next batch of info/photos will be a little more interesting.
      Comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm already ordering parts from George so before I know it, I'll be just waiting on new parts (after a little more cleaning.
