    Smile PA road trip finalized, i think?

    thanks once again for all the help.

    heres what we have so far

    leaving form toronto ontario canada this Friday 6am
    Get to the border, stripped searched for 2 hours
    Ellicotville - Holiday valley by Noon, ride 3 to 5 hours

    Drive through De Bois then to Harrisburg
    Find a hotel via hotwire (49 to 90 bucks a night) if anyone has some favorites let me know (indoor pool) would be nice and internet access to check mtbr

    Saturday either Michaux or Rattling Creek - possibly both
    Sunday make the drive to 7 spings (is it good to go there even without chair lift access)
    OR Rattling Creek / Michaux if we didnt get to do it the day before.

    Monday either hit up one more trail on the way home, or leave early to get back to holiday valley in ellicotville.

    Some feedback would be great, we want to stay away form the rockier stuff, as we have a trip planned to New Found Land for mid June.

    thanks

    If you're looking for DH trails, check out Blue Mountain. Not only is it open, but it's a little closer than 7. www.verticalearthpa.com

    As for your other plans, damn son, that's ambitious. Haven't been to Michaux in years, but just rode Rattling Creek this spring again and it was great. Highly recommended.

    You'll be here for Dirtfest weekend at the Allegrippis trails at Raystown Lake. May want to consider that as an option as well. Those trails certainly fall into the "no rocks" category.

    There's two HoJos, but it doesn't really matter you're close enough either way to try yourself some of the ABC:
