The Northumberland County Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area (AOAA) Authority was formed in January of 2013 to address the issue of illegal riders on the 7,500 acres of county-owner forest and coal lands by providing a safe, regulated riding area – a better experience for everyone.

The authority consists of Barry Yorwarth, an outdoor enthusiast and federal prison employee; Patrick Mack, county planning and industrial development director; Michael Schwartz, a local bank official and chairman of the Zerbe Township Board of Supervisors; Backes, director of operations for GDK Development Inc., and David L. Crowl, a longtime contractor and state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) volunteer.
