The Pennsylvania Trail Riders Association dedicates its time and effort to sponsoring four annual dual sport events in the state. PATRA’s mission is to ensure that the Seven Mountains and Shade Mountain motorcycle trails remain a legal trail system. Their work requires close coordination with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, state forestry officials, the state legislature and recreational, environmental and community stakeholders.
“PATRA is very honored to receive a 2018 Friend of AMA Award,'” said PATRA President Craig Mellott. “In April 1973, a very energetic guy named Wally Crawford decided to form an organization that would organize all the off-road riders and clubs that were scattered across the state. As you can see from our history, our mission is to ride, protect, and conserve the trail systems of the Bald Eagle State Forest. We are very proud to be considered a friend to the AMA and all those who enjoy the trail.”
