Because of the Archbald/Jessup industrial park construction (destruction), the main path that lead to the three dams is cut-off. So while riding around yesterday on the CRF, I found a path that is not used often if ever. I found two drifts about 30-50 feets apart. there's that coal-rich silt on the path around the openings but I think these are boot-leg mines. I'll check it out in the future. Once again, I have been playing in this area for 20 years and have been so close to these openings but never found them till now.

I'm always looking for someone to go riding with, I usually go after work around 6pm or later at night like 9pm. I'll go for a short ride, 1 1/2-2 hrs. Early afternoons on Saturdays. PM me with a contact number, we can meet in Jessup area like Grassy Island area. (RIP Grassy Island)
