Default Caspirus Stone Quarry in Connellsville PA

So I was looking for places to wheel today in my english class and I found a stone quarry south of Pittsburgh called Caspirus in Connellsville PA. It supposedly has a 6 mile long trail that takes about 3-4 hours to do dry and 6-7 wet along with caves you can drive through that go 1/2 mile underground. I typed Connellsville in google maps and there is a quarry there but it couldn't find Caspirus. I did a little searching and they closed the caves but everything else is still open. The images I saw were so amazing. I really want to go there but have no idea if its a legit place or if its too good to be true. Has anyone gone there or does anyone know anything about it?

There is also a place nearby there called Creek Falls. From what I know, both these places are "wheel at your own risk", and not sanctioned as legit public playgrounds.

While it is a long ways away from Connellsville, Rausch Creek is in North Eastern PA, and legitimate. http://www.rauschcreekoffroadpark.org/

I still miss Paragon

Yeah, I'm only an hour and a half from Rausch Creek, but my friend goes to IUP and if we're gonna be going all the way out that way we figured we might as well get muddy and do some wheeling before we head back home. I was just wondering if its a legit place or if its all barricaded up.

and if a small group of teens went to these places to wheel (2 to 3 trucks and of course my blazer =P) do you think we'd get in trouble?

The only way to find out is to go I guess. As far as I know, it may no be entirely legal to go there. Bring a wallet full of cash in case you need it. LOL.
Seriously, I suppose if you went on a weekend, you may run a higher risk of getting a trespassing citation, and whatever other laws you may, or may not be breaking. Most likely nothing bad will happen if your cool about it. Guess it depends partly on how easy going the local LOE's are.
Stay on the easy stuff. It would suck to get stuck someplace you shouldn't really be.
