Finding Penn's Snow-Covered Rocks
Jed and Zack Wood grew up on their family campground, helping their dad with the upkeep and playing with hot rods and musclecars in their spare time. As they got older, dear old dad retired and handed over the operation of their Blue Rocks Family Campground to his boys, and before long they had families of their own. Through the years Jed and Zack found some free time to go run a mud hole or two, but it wasn't until a neighbor friend invited them over to his farm for some four-wheeling and rockcrawling that the brothers quickly realized that they had the makings of some great trails hidden amongst the trees on their own campground.
As it turns out, the family campground sits on top of a massive glacier field where 350 million years ago an enormous ice flow deposited tons of limestone boulders. These rocks are perfect for all levels of trail machines, and the woods also hide some mud holes and hillclimbs such that a small group of wheelers could spend a day or two creeping, crawling, and breaking their 4x4s amongst the Pennsylvania hills. Since the brothers are so busy running the 120-acre campground all summer long and the trails are just being plotted, the four-wheeling's restricted to small groups by appointment during the winter off season. If you're in the northeast and looking for a place to take your 4x4 for some low-range fun, contact the Wood brothers and set up a weekend rendezvous for you and your wheeling buddies.
