We are very excited to bring some gravel races to Pennsylvania in 2021.  Our race director grew up just down the road from Parker Dam and spent a lot of time around the park on day trips and camping.  We are very excited to show this beautiful area with you.

Parker Dam and S.B. Elliott State Parks are continentally located off of Interstate 80 (Exit 111) between the DuBois and Clearfield exits.
