Anyone in the eastern pa area?

Hey guys, I have a 2005 klr 650 and am looking for good people and good trails to get some off road time on. I just got my klr about 2 weeks ago. If anyone knows some spots near the willow grove or Levittown areas and or wants to meet up for a ride sometime let me know!

You're about an hour South of me. I just got my 1993 KLR650 last week.
I'm hoping this weekend to go out riding. I haven't been on a bike in about three years and about ten years since I've been offroad, so I'm hoping it comes back fairly easy.
I'm probably going to head to Bangor and northern Northampton County to hit up some of the powerline trails up there.

I am just around the corner from you, Montgomery township. The only thing I have found to ride around here are gravel roads up the river from New Hope. Unfortunately, They are starting to get paved over.

I've never been to New Hope. I know a lot of my friends and their "basic" girlfriends go there all the time. They tell me its nice.
Mind you, these are the same people that said "Bethlehem is a good place to live" and I hate it, so...

Bit of a trip for you all, but in Central PA we have the AOAA: Anthrocite Offroad Adventure Area in Shamokin. It's about 1.5 hr from Bethlehem, so it would be a day trip. it's about 3000 acres of old coal mine roads. It's mixed use with ATVs and Jeeps, so look out around corners. There are fees but they are reasonable.

My buddy Logan was telling me about that place. I'm just not sure how well I'd do with the KLR. I'm used to going on those trails with ATV's, not enduro bikes, let alone a dual-sport like the KLR.

DO NOT QUESTION IT!

There is a nice spread of difficulty including the main paths, which are pretty much flat dirt roads. With the bars and panniers I don't think my KLR will be doing any thing too extreme without getting wedged between trees! Have fun!
