    Parking at PA trail heads through sunset...ok? no-k?

    I'm planning a short mid-week ride soon at Moosic (Eales Preserve, near Scranton). Aim to be done by 5:30PM (which is 45 mins or so after sunset). Will I be ok parking, or are the lots patrolled by local constabulary? I checked the Nature Conservancy's website for park hours but couldn't find any. Any info on park hours and/or parking restrictions there from locals in the know is appreciated.

    the ones I have ridden in pa say parks open from sun-up to sunset.. and I have been to trails that have gates they close on you (so car will be stuck there...)---and now sunset is like 5:30pm here....

    If there is a locking gate I would park somewhere nearby instead, what happens if you get a flat at a bad time?

    Moosic is open 24/7. There's no gate to lock you in. It's one of the few places you can officially do a night ride without causing issues for the bike community. Ttyl, Fahn

    your car is stuck till the next day (just call a cab at the gate to pick you up??)

    unless you keep a can of 'fix-a-flat' like I do in the car...
