Welcome to The Great American Crawl presented by Mickey Thompson Tires!
This stop will be at Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area otherwise known as AOAA in Coal Township, PA! Home of the INSANE Mammoth Trail!!!
This will be our first time visiting this park but not our first time in the area since our stop in 2021 at Rausch Creek. As well as some of us have visited this park before in the past.
If you have not heard of AOAA, it is an extensive off-road trail system on close to 8,000 acres of land which originally started out as mining land back in the 1950's but wasn't reclaimed until recently. You will see trails ranging from dirt bikes, to trucks and from beginner to full blown rock buggy obstacles making sure everyone will be in on the fun.
For starters, AOAA does require a waiver to enter the park so we ask everyone to please fill those out before you come just to speed up the check in process and get you all more time out on the trails. For a full list of rules, regulations, and pricing for the park check out the link below:
A full map of both Eastern and Western Sides are available on the AOAATrails Website and are frequently updated on the OnX Off-Road, Polaris Ride Command, and the Maprika mobile apps. So make sure you download those as well!
As these crawl stops continue to grow in size, we need to be able to be able to still make the experience positive by making certain restrictions and limiting group sizes. This is mainly to keep groups moving along and making sure you all are seeing as much as possible on these stops!
Schedule of Events:
Plan of events is still TBD so look out for updates, but as of now we follow our typical event schedule:
Friday, Saturday are guided wheeling days. Sunday free for all, make your own groups day, as well as drive back home day.
We will have different groups based on vehicle size, options, and driver capabilities. We will include some flexibility on this so everyone feels included but we also highly encourage you all make your own groups along side ours groups to keep rig count low and increase trail flow. The number of trails groups will be dependent on amount of vehicles registered and the amount of trail lead/tails volunteering. With that being said, if you are interested on being a lead or tail please reach out to one of our crew on how you could help out and be put on the list! We would love your help!
Typically media content is majorly captured on the advanced groups but we will be trying our best to capture everyone the best that we can. The harder obstacles would usually showcase vehicle capabilities and in turn be a bit slower, which makes getting content easier instead of slowing everyone down. We strive to capture the best of what each park has to offer as well as the diverse vehicles that come out to play.
AirBnb & Vrbo have some great options when coming out to the area so be sure to check those out since hotels are slim picking. Other AOAA lodging suggestions include:
There are also plenty of restaurants and attractions outside of the park so lots to do after a good days ride in!
And before you leave, make sure to take a picture in the "Bucket"!
