Rausch Creek Off Road Park provides off-roaders with a fun and legal area to go off-roading. It is open for individuals to use as well as off-road clubs and organizations. The park is located at 453 Molleystown Rd., Tremont, PA 17981. The park offers close to 3,000 acres of trails which range from easy, intermediate and hard trails, bowls and hills. The park also offers free on site camping areas for those who wish to camp and enjoy the scenery. The park is open April – November, there is no need to make a reservation on weekends, there is plenty of room for everyone. Monday – Thursday the park is open by reservation only and all camping requires a reservation to guarantee that you have a spot once you arrive.

If you happen to be in the area on October 8th, you may want to stop in and take part in the Trail Fest. This is event promises to be fun for all levels of off-roaders and spectators. Drivers will have the chance to test their abilities on the park’s trails as well as meet others who share the same passion as they do. If you’re in or near the area, you should definitely stop and check out the event, you will not be sorry.

Rausch Creek Off Road Park is also home to a large glacial deposit known as Rock Creek. This trail begins a few feet from a main access road and extends to over 1,800 feet. At its widest point the deposit is over 150 feet wide. The area is loaded with boulders that are large in size and packed close enough together that hardly any trees have been able to grow in the area. The deposit tests the driving ability of even the most experienced driver, it is challenging and will provide drivers with one of the best climbing tests they will experience.

Rausch Creek Off Road Park has plenty to offer off-roaders of all skill levels. The trails are well designed and provide hours of fun and adventure. Rausch Creek Off Road Park is a site that should be on ever off-roaders list of favorites.

  1. Didn’t make the Trail Fest but I get to Rausch Creek O.R. Park at least twice a month. It’s only a 3 hour drive from my place and well worth the trip. There are still a few parts of the park I have not been to, but I’m still working on it.

  2. Free camping is an unexpected plus. That is a place my family and I can really get into. The wife likes the camping and leaves the Jeeping to me and the boys. I seldom talk her into a ride. She’d rather set up camp and sit around and read. Boring!

  3. 3,000 acres is music to my ears. There is nothing near this size anywhere close to where I live. We have some trails but not many. Terrain is mostly dirt/mud and a couple of creeks. I’d love to be able to give this park a try. I’ve never even heard of a glacial deposit. Have to look that one up. I know where I’ll be heading in the Spring when I’m eligible for my vacation.

  4. I’ve seen pictures and heard stories of the Rausch Creek climbing experiences but I have yet to try it myself. It’s on my bucket list though and I’m young enough that I’ll get there eventually. I figure I’ll need at least 2 weeks to make the trip and have sufficient time to give the park a run for its money.

  5. I was intrigued by the term glacial deposit since I had never heard of it and I went hunting for an answer. This is what I found. “Glacial deposits are layers of rock, above the bedrock, as produced by the recent ice age(s), the glaciers as they moved across the planet, would pick up debris along the way, and as they moved, to say the area of, Washington State, besides, forming the Puget Sound Basin, called, a Fjord, later melting and leaving behind the various deposits, possibly gem material, gold, diamod’s, etc.” So now I know I can find some super rock climbing at Rausch Creek Park, and so do you!
