This trail system has a lot to offer from beginner trails to hill climbs and mudpits good enough to challenge the best 4wd quads and a racetrack that's not on any of the maps. You travel 800 feet underground through a railroad tunnel and across a bridge 300 feet high.
The Snow Shoe Rails to Trails was formed in 1999. We are all volunteers & maintain the trail with your membership dues. The trail is for walkers, bikers, equestrians, atvs & snowmobiles. We have 19 miles of abandon railroad bed along with 20 miles of legalized Snow Shoe Township Roads. In August 2011, DCNR connected us to the Bloody Skillet Trail near Orviston. We now have approximately an 80 mile trail system. The Snow Shoe Rails to Trails System is open year around. However, the Bloody Skillet Trail is a state system & is closed certain times of the year. So, check the DCNR web site to determine specific dates etc. Motorized units must be registered with the club to ride the trail. You must provide state registration & insurance information to register your motorized units.
Plan according: Turn around time for a membership sticker is usually 10 days. That is from the time you send in your application till you receive your membership. However, we do have several local corporate sponsors that handle the applications & can provide you a membership sticker on site. View them out on our membership page.
We have 12 gates with bollards along the trail. The bollard width is 61 inches wide. So, your motorized unit needs to be less than 61 inches to ride the trail.
