The Railroad bridge over West Creek in Emporium is now open (provided there is snow).
The club has put all new decking on the existing railroad ties. Please proceed with caution and go slow since this is a residential area, but this opens up a whole new location for riding, food, and fuel.
There is no fuel from the trails in St. Marys. If you are coming from Emporium, fill up there(Quick Fill, Sheetz only gas station directly on trail, or Fuel On) prior to continuing on the railroad grade. End of West Creek trail in St Marys requires some road riding to get to Sunoco on Washington St.
