    Day Hike IN NEPA

    Well here we go....I wanted to go out for a day hike to a spot i hiked and camped a few years ago i wanted to look for a new spot to hang on an overnight trip in the winter so i loaded up my Northface hammerhead with my JetBoil,few odd and ends and lunch,hiking poles,sidearm and off i went

    The land i was hiking on i use to keep an eye on a few years back...i still do...just not like i use too anyway they select cut the area last year so this was the first time i'v been back since they did this...so everything was different from the start lots of new paths and logging roads so i ended up walking a logging road for a mile till i got to a path and walked this path for a half a mile and came up on a campsite...well i should say a party spot but was pretty clean so i hiked alittle more didn't get far till i was almost ran over by an ATV ...and i got alittle futher...and almost got ran over ....again...
    needless to say all i could hear all day was ATV's
    so i headed back and stopped at the party spot i past coming in and was going to make lunch ...but i just put my pack on and headed back to the truck....it's a shame the kids have the hole MNT ripped up and trashed ....
    so i guess i won't be doing an overnight there lol....i felt like i was hiking in an ATV park
    so i'll just do an overnight on the AT ....
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    Sorry to hear. The rule is that anywhere someone can drive an ATV, run a moto, four wheel a truck, off road something, you name it....it's their's. Developer can buy the land and turn it into town, its his. Meadow or mountain, if its not a monument or nat'l or state park, its not protected. Head north my friend, where its still too cold, and maybe, for a while, there you'll find peace.

    Can you share some more detail on where you were hiking in NEPA so I can avoid it?

    I was Outside Pottsville area
    sad part is most of the land is private land so most if not all the ppl that ride back there do it illegally,there have been road blocks made and pole gates put up to stop it but nothing works they just make a new way in
    it makes the ppl that ride ATV's and respect the land and don't trespass look bad in my eyes and i ride
    thas the bad part about my area not many ppl respect the wooded areas we have.

    thats why i just go south the AT it's only a 10 min ride to port clinton for me
