Rev-Up for Moto Mayhem at Majestic Trails
Perfectly nestled in the Allegheny Mountain Region of Northwestern Pennsylvania, Majestic Trails motorsports recreation area is celebrating their 10th year of business. This family-oriented company is one of the few areas that people can enjoy riding their ATVs, dirt bikes and UTVs legally.
Located in Rew, Pa., Majestic Trails offers a challenging, mountainous terrain. Two loops span the property, totaling over 41 miles of wooded technical ATV and dirt bike trails. Additionally, they offer a single track for dirt bikes, a motocross play area for ATVs and dirt bikes, a pee-wee motocross track and wilderness style camping.
“This year, we’ve constructed several new pavilions and outhouses along the trails. These are perfect for lunch breaks and short pit stops,” said Brenda Fitch, Owner.
Pricing seems affordable and attractive, at only $20/day for adults, $10/day for children under 15 years old, and $10/day for a passenger. Annual membership fees are also available, as well as campsite fees for members and non-members.
“We love riding at Majestic because of the challenge of the courses,” said Jason Nett, avid dirt biker and private track owner. “The trails themselves have twists, turns and small jumps with a ton of action and activity in one area. The cost is reasonable, the owners are friendly and the trail conditions are exceptional.”
Trails are well marked with green, blue, black and pink arrows. Green being the easiest loop, blue being the more advanced loop and black being the most difficult. Pink arrows along the trails designate the “easy back” or shortcut to the trailhead. No map is necessary on this trail system, just follow the arrows!
If you’re into camping, Majestic Trails has room for motor homes, campers, toy haulers and tents. Nett mentioned that Saturday nights at the camping area have turned into huge social events. “It’s a big deal to get so many people together that are all there for the same reason - to socialize and come together at the end of the day,” he said.
Majestic Trails sets themselves apart from other similar companies by striving to provide to their riders with well-groomed trails year round, the opportunity to ride primarily on wooded trails with very few roads, and a one-way direction with a challenging mountainous terrain.
As long as they can withstand the ATV noise and aren’t spooked easily, horses are also welcome on the trails. In the wintertime, the trails are used for snowmobiling and sometimes four-wheelers, depending on the amount of snow.
IN THE BEGINNING
The Majestic Trails property was once land of the timber and oil industry, and blossomed into a playground for outdoor motorsports enthusiasts 10 years ago. At that time, the Fitch family owned a camp on the property and had the opportunity to purchase additional land.
With their family passion for outdoor motorsports, they moved forward with the land acquisition, and worked throughout the years to provide people with a fun, legal place to ride. The entire operation and all trail maintenance is run solely by Brenda, her husband, her two children and a few volunteers.
“Over the years, I’ve watched the operation evolve. Trail conditions have improved, due to bigger and better trail building equipment. The additions of the pond, pavilions, restroom facilities and an enlarged camping area are also huge perks,” said Nett.
