SSRTA did a week long atv trip at the end of July and beginning of August. First we stop at Forest Lodge in Marienville and rented some rooms and camping areas too. We met the new owners, Dave & Suzzy - wonderful people-and they are making some nice improvements to the rooms and camp sites. Eric Brooks was excited to hear about the new driveway Dave is going to install into the camping area.
We spent 3 days at Marienville riding 3 separate trails & eating at several different restaurants - Voulwinkles for wings, Kelley's for breakfast, Bettina's for wonderful Italian food. The approximate 28 mile bike trail is one that is for experience riders. However, the Marienville/Timberline trails are easier areas for riding. We then traveled to Coudersport and stayed at the Mill Stream Inn and others camped at the Potato City Campground.
We took one day off from riding and relaxed around the camp fire. Mike & Nicole Harris prepared excellent BBQ ribs and chicken for supper that day. Then, we rode the Potato City Trail down to Lyman Run Dam. It was sure nice with the extra riding available that we could ride to the parks concession stand and get ice cream & hot dogs. Great idea and sure hope that it could happen at Black Moshannon Park someday. What a great economic impact.
We then traveled to Whiskey Springs and rode it one day and then back to Snow Shoe to ride the SSRT and Bloody Skillet. One great experience with a bunch of good friends to share such wonderful memories.
