Bloody Skillet to Renovo and Renovo To Whiskey Springs Connections: We were so happy when Mike Hanna got this into the govenor’s budget. However, since then Mike has been enjoying the retired life-great for him! The Clinton County Commissioners received a letter from DCNR Secretary Dunn on May 10, 2019 describing why this connection cannot ocurr by April 1, 2020. Estimated project of 16 to 20 million dollars and too many safety issues recognized by both PennDot & DCNR. Let’s hope our new representative Stephanie Borowicz can work with us and get this back on track. Such a shame to not help our businesses on both ends of the trail connections. Connecting SSRT to Renovo and beyond makes a trail system that can help the communities. Sad when we're disconnected.


This is the latest updated map of the DCNR trail connecting Bloody Skillet to Renovo and Renovo to Whiskey Springs. It was presented to us at the North Central Initiative Committee Meeting in Lock Haven on December 14, 2018. We pushed hard to get this section of trail done now instead of waiting till later. Connecting Snow Shoe Rails to Trails to the entire trail system is important economically for all areas on both ends. There are so many people to thank for this trail system. DCNR Secretary Dunn, Mike Hanna Sr. & Mike Hanna Jr, Bureau of Forestry Jason Albright, CMATVA & SSRTA, Clinton & Centre County Commissioners, Clinton County Economic Development Association. CMATVA is working hard north of Renovo connecting township roads to Coudersport and beyond. Eventually, the plan is to ride from Philipsburg to New York. The Bloody Skillet to Renovo and Renovo to Whiskey Springs is to be open for the Spring of 2020. Then, the connection to New York is to be completed by 2024.
Secretary Dunn started a feasibility study for this section of trail. Then Public Input Meetings were held at Lock Haven University, Afterwards, Mike Hanna Jr recommended to get the trail into Governor Wolf's budget. So, Mike Hanna Sr was successful at doing so. We were told in the meeting December 14 by our new representative Stephanie Borowicz, that she is supportive of the trail and looks forward to working with everyone on it.
The SSRTA met recently with Bob Brown to make a connection around the viaduct bridge. He understands our interest and needs for this connection but has two more reclamation projects to complete first. The SSRTA would like to build a connection around the future project so more discussions still to be held.
Thank you all for your support of atv clubs.


Mike Hanna has recently spoke to the governor to get a bill introduced and passed through the House & Senate. The first part of the project connecting Bloody Skillet to Renovo and Renovo to Whiskey Springs is to be completed by April 1, 2020. The 2nd part of the bill is to complete and make connection from Clinton to NY Border by 2024. CMATVA has made a lot of these connection but will need help from DCNR & Penn Dot to complete the rest. SSRTA is proud to be a part of such a large project and is presently working to connect on the west end of the SSRTA to Philipsburg. There are so many people to thank for their efforts in this project, and one that comes to mind is Jeff Snyder, Clinton County Commission. He has been there supporting both atv clubs and traveling to Harrisburg, attending events, meetings to help make this project happen. Mike Hanna-what can we say about his support for both atv riding organizations and now to finish off his great career with something that will help not only the local businesses but other businesses across the state. See what can happen when everyone works together for the same goals. Thank you to all the members of both organizations, corporate sponsors of both organizations-without you this could not of happen. So we thank you all!!


We had a good informational DCNR meeting on December 12th, 2017 at Lock Haven University. Larson Design Group presented their conceptual disign to connect Bloody Skillet To almost Renovo and Whiskey Springs to almost Renovo. The puzzle is to link the two systems at Renovo. We had about 150 people in attendance - great turnout. DCNR is asking for your thoughts how to link the two trails around or through Renovo.

DCNR/Larson Group held the 2nd of two meetings on December 19th, 2017 at Lock Haven University to discuss the results of the feasibility study to connect Bloody Skillet to Renovo & Renovo to Whiskey Spring. After a presentation of the conceptual trail, we were divided into 3 groups to discuss input. Safety, patrols, economic impact on the businesses were the main issues addressed. There still remains a puzzle to connect at Renovo from both sides.
