Kymco Trail Report - Riding Whiskey Springs in February

In early February we saddled up with 16 other friends from the Central Mountains ATV Association and did 40 miles in a heat wave (15 degrees) at the Whiskey Springs ATV Trail System in the Sproul State Forest in Central Pa. Hey, that's no joke  - our last ride it was a balmy 3 degrees when we started and probably -3 below when we finished.

The folks from the CMATVA ride twice a month - every month.

Turf and Trail Equipment - Mifflinburg, Pa

My day started out from home in southern Pa about 5:15 am  to go pick up my ride for the day courtesy of Kymco USA and Turf and Trail Equipment in Mifflinburg, Pa. This full service Kymco and Toro dealership was kind enough to put me in a 2018 UXV700i Le for the day to go hit one of the knarliest trail systems that the PA DCNR has to offer.

Check out a short video from the day.

The Whiskey Springs trail offers 50 miles of winter and summer trails and is part of Pennsylvania's State ATV trail system. Located just southeast of Kettle Creek State Park and just North of Renovo, Pa. Access is gained off State Route 120 - turn right at the Kettle Creek Inn and go approximately 1.5 miles then turn right on Two Mile Rd. to parking areas. Contact the Sproul State Forest for more info at: 570.923.6011

Renovo has opened up its township roads so wheeling in for lunch was a breeze. 
Be careful here however as Two Mile Rd is not ATV approved.

This is an awesome place to ride but make sure you get all the details on what is legal and what is not before you ride. Maps are available at the DCNR station right down the road from the Kettle Creek Inn and online at this link: Click Here for Info

Taking a break on the trail to fix a flat tire on one of the machines. Its nothing like the fun you'll find when riding with a group and you'll definitely find safety in numbers.

More help on the trail as we had to winch the Kymco over an icy rocky uphill patch. I found out later we had the tires over inflated maybe leading to this necessity. Thank goodness Kymco offers a winch as standard equipment on their machines.
