ATVs: Places to ride

Yes, we know, the 6,500-acre Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area in Northumberland County is bigger than most Philly neighborhoods. Neither the city or a private investor would be able to find a parcel a fraction of that size for an ATV park in the city. But local riders say they don't need much land for the kind of riding they enjoy. Will an ATV park in the city stop illegal riding? No, but if it's coupled with new efforts to combat illegal riding, it could help. Here's a list of large parcels, some suggested by readers and a few that are likely to ruffle some feathers.
