There is only one legal state forest in CT that one can go to. Its diagonally totally across the state from Stamford.

A) I won't give locations on an open forum and B) even if I were to give you directions TO the trailhead, it would be way to difficult to give directions THROUGH the road network as there are no signs that would tell you that you have trespassed onto the shooting range or the other private parcels that border the state land.

However, there are at least 4 private parcels in CT (and another 20+ locations throughout New England) that are available by joining a club.

Average dues are about $50 a year. A whole lot less than that trespass ticket would be.
Check out East Coast 4WD Assoc/Northeast Region for a list of area clubs.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

You can also just hop on the power lines if you live around hartford. Miles of trails, lots of fun as long as you don't get caught.

Thank you for promoting such a responsible aspect of the sport.

yeah, might as well get that ticket, its only $110.
And of course, that puts money into the pocket of the state who is doing OH so much to allow motorized recreation.

Thats 2 years of dues into a responsible club.

maybe I need to look into a Jeep-experienced shop also. as some of you may know, I started my 4.6L stroker project May of last year. my friend's uncle has been a mechanic for 25 years and knows a LOT about cars in general. he had the motor installed in 2 days and looks great, however it is a 1994 motor in a 1988 Jeep. I followed many online write-ups regarding installing a newer HO motor in a pre '90 XJ, but a year later it still isn't on the road. I have upgraded all necessary sensors, etc. the only thing I can see causing the problem possibly is using the 99+ intake setup with the newer TPS, so maybe it isn't communicating properly with the '88 ECU. initially it was a fuel problem, pump was bad so we replaced it, then the injectors weren't atomizing the fuel because the fuel pressure was a bit too low. can anyone recommend a very knowledgeable Jeeper to help me?

Looking for a DJ in Eastern CT? Affordable Weddings and all other parties. PM me for info!


RIP - '88 BigOrangeXJ (4.6L stroker, 3.5" RE lift, 32" BFG M/T and TONS more)...
You will be resurrected as a '98.
