About 800 acres of totally insane offroar heaven. Do not go here on the weekends!! It is totally overidden by hillbillies on dirtbikes. It is however safe on the weekdays. It is real easy to get lost here. get to know the place before you ride in too deep!

Summary:
The Hillsville Quarry is limestone strip mine, which in recent years is being stripped again. Near Hoffmaster road, toward Bessemer PA, all of this area is what I would call un-ridable, and unsafe because it is being stripped once again.

The quarry covers Bessemer PA, Hillsville PA, Edinburg, and some of North Beaver PA. It is near Poland OH, but is not in it, however the BFI dump is, which has some good trails, and then there are also quarry areas in Poland.

Anywho, there is something for everyone here. Downhill, XC, you name it. You will find something to suit your skill level here. The area is frequented by many ORVs, so a weekday ride, or Sat. ride would be your best bet over Sunday. As far as total mileage or acerage, I am unaware, it would all depend on the routes you chose.

Nearby there are other trails that will take you along the Mahoning river towars Loweville OH (not the Lawrence county bike trail), and also other trails that will lead you to Ouaker town/Ouaker Falls.

I will be making a map showing points of interest, and safe areas to park your vehicle using satellite images and topographical maps in the near future. If anyone is interested, I am more than willing to be a free trail guide.

Recommended Route:
On Rt 224 in PA, head towars Christine lane in Edinburg PA, zip code 16116. There is a plaza called Hilltop Centre at the entrance of Christine lane. You can park your vehicle here safely and without any issues, plus there is a snack place there to get some grub. This is the safest place to park your vehicle.

To access the quarry, ride across 224 into the housing development, and follow the main road stright back into the wooded area. You are now in the quarry, and the path is yours to choose.

To access the trails that run along the mahoning river and rail road tracks follow Christine lane back into the housing development. (This is Gregg Circle.) Follow Christine lane down the hill towards the beige/gray house at the end, and you will see the trail entrance. Follwo the trails to the railroad tracks, and head LEFT to go towards Loweville. One you get to the bridge crossing, continue to follow the tracks until you see a trail entrance on your LEFT. Follow these trails to get to Ouaker Falls/Quaker Town, and then onto Loweville OH.

If anyone has ANY questions, feel free to PM me at cds00bsmg or AIM me at cdsporscheturbo

Summary:
this is a downhill heaven there are some crazy drops but i would reccomend having a friend on a quad or something to take you back to the top. But there are plenty of other types of trails im positive there is something for everyone. Also it is easy to get lost verry easy

Recommended Route:
same as first post
