So you do trials?

Unfortunately, you have to be willing to drive a little. But, fortunately there are places to ride.
PA state forests have miles and miles of gravel to ride.
http://www.patrailriders.org/ have links to free state forest moto trails.

Other good spots not too far-

Others will chime in with more southern places.

Hi new guy. Hauling your bike a good distance is kinda the Achilles Heel of dirtbiking and decent dualsporting...

I'm always happy to play moto guide and lead a good ride through Frederick County and up into PA to southern Michaux. Mostly backroads and dirt roads, but there is some offroad.

Scorpa 175 is a rare bike, feel sure I have bumped into you at a MAVT event. As far as trail riding the posts above pretty much nailed it. Plenty of riding in PA but the good riding is far from easy. If you just want dirt roads well then PA is loaded.
