Description:

Join The Hummer Club, Inc for an off-road event at two of Pennsylvania's premier parks; Raush Creek offroad park and Anthracite Outdoor Adventure area (AOAA).

The club will be hosting a two day event, one day and AOAA and one day at Rausch Creek ORV, PA.  Both parks are within a short driving distance of each other and are within easy driving distance of many cities near the East Coast.  We are having a trail guide that knows these trails well and will lead us to maximize our fun time on the trails.

Rausch Creek Off Road Park is devoted to providing a fun place for off-road enthusiasts to go four-wheeling.  The park consists of almost 3,000 acres of easy, intermediate, and difficult trails – featuring rocks, bowls, hills, club friendly trails, and free, on-site camping. A great park for Hummers.  For more information on the trails and the park Rausch ORV Website 

Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area is a 6500 acre facility with both full size and UTV trails shared trails.
The park has two main areas, the Western and Eastern reserves both with their own unique trail systems.  For over 10 years, folks who go off road are familiar with the Rausch Creek "Blue", "Black" and "Red" trails that they offer.  However after wheeling on the AOAA's blue, black and red trails, drivers are humbled and quickly realize that the blues and blacks at AOAA are on a whole other level.  AOAA Website
