Offroad in the heart of the
Anthracite Coal Region
Shamokin, Pennsylvania

It was time to take a group photo and we had remembered a great place to line them up in front of a large rock face on a grass covered hill.  It just so happened that this photo spot was in back of a large, shallow mud pond we had played in earlier a little.  Like kids getting out of school at the bell, once the picture shooting was over it was a mad dash to the MUD.  Having been though this mud pond before and knowing it's characteristics the group didn't hesitate to make a splash.  Some of the rooster tails were amazingly fun to watch.

The Centralia Mine Fire

Not far from the trails in this area is a location that used to be a quaint little town with about 1100 people living in the community.  In recent years the town as pretty much been dismantle due to an on-going underground mine fire that has been burning for almost 40 years, since 1962.  The story of this little town is much too involved to talk about here on this page however if you wish to know more Offroaders has dedicated a section of our site to the town of Centralia, PA.  To read more follow this link: Centralia

Another awesome location for trail riding in the PA coal regions is Rausch Creek Offroad ParkRausch Creek Offroad Park is located in Joliett, PA. in the heart of Pennsylvania anthracite coal country.  It is quickly becoming a very popular Offroad Park with tons of great trails especially for the rock crawler.  Below are some recent pictures from Rausch Creek during an OK 4 Wheel Drive sponsored event.  Rausch Creek offers thousands of acres worth of challenging trails.  For more, click here: Rausch Creek Offroad Park.
