The plan for my second stop was planned a long time ago. I wanted to stop at Majestic Trails in Rew, PA. I wanted to get into the dirt and do some riding as soon as possible. In the North Eastern United States finding public legal off-road riding is quite a challenge. Much of the available riding is on private land with paid admission.
When I was in college in western New York there was absolutely not legal off-roading in the area. I used to drive down to Majestic Trails from time to time to ride. I was excited to go back.
I got there, paid my $60 for a year long membership ($15 a day or $60 a year, geeze, their pricing structure sure has changed) and setup camp.
I immediately got geared up and onto the KTM for some riding. I quicky found that Majestic Trails wasn’t quite what it used to be. The trails were very little fun for me. They have about 40 miles of trails and I was able to cover all of them in less than 2 hours. They now groom the trails so they are smooth smooth smooth. They might as well just pave them. Most of the trails I could have driven a honda civic down. They are biased towards families and ATV’s. On their website it states “Trails have two riding levels – intermediate and expert. First time riders MUST have an experienced rider accompany them. Majestic Trails offers one of the most challenging rides you will experience.” which was not at all true. It would be a good place to take your grandmother for a weekend of slow poking, but there is absolutely no challenge for me anywhere. At least I got to camp for only $5 a night.
Thankfully they have a basic motocross track which occupied me for a few hours.
(I can’t really get good photos with my camera on a timer and a tripod.)
I ended up staying for 4 or 5 days to attempt getting my moneys worth, but really it wasn’t quite what I was hoping for.
