small-sr Icon

Trail 101, also known as Puddle Road, is a straight-through trail primarily used as a main travel vein through the Western Reserve of Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area (AOAA). This trail is multiple vehicles wide for most of the trek and traverses countless muddy water holes. Most water holes are only a few inches deep, but a few holes are known for swallowing vehicles and have good signage to help users avoid the deepest parts of said holes. Besides the muddy spots, this trail offers no obstacles and follows a hard-packed dirt surface with occasional protruding rocks. The trail overlooks and ends at the park's iconic Mammoth Trail, where users can take advantage of the bus-sized boulders and snap a few poser shots. This trail is suitable for any high clearance 4x4.

Be sure to reference the AOAA website for accommodation links, days and hours of operation, waiver, and pass purchasing links.
