If you make the trip down to RC every other month like we try and do it may be worth it to pick up a trailer.

Those are all personal subjective assessments, as was mine on it being too expensive. I did two JJUSA events back when I was barely in a club and was unaware of any real alternative form of organized off-roading. They were indeed a nice time, but in my opinion are better suited to newer Jeepers. These days I tend to be the guy running/organizing multi-club events rather buying my way into others.

All the above are great events.
$600 for a weekend of wheeling at the Jeep Jamboree.
$70 for a weekend at Rausch.
$50 yearly dues to an organized club.
Ability to get out and wheel, public and private land, all season long, for "free" as part of that club... Priceless...

Sorry.. couldn't help myself

Talk soon,

Don't forget $100 for Reading land. 22k acres, roll up with your buddies and go wheel whichever spot you want whenever you want.

Reading Anthracite Coal company sells permits to their land in PA, about 22,000 acres over several parcels between Pottsville, Trevorton, Raucsh and Paragon. Worth every penny!

Tremont PA. Probably about 3 - 3 1/2 hours from poughkeepsie. Take 84 to 81 and it's exit 107. Make a right and the first left and you're there.

Hello all,

I am in Gardiner, NY and now I have my jeep just about where I want it (read: can afford to put into it) and now I want to go on some trails. Only problem is they are apparently all secret. I have gone to some of the 4WD club websites but they seem to be all extreme rigs for extreme trails. Although my Jeep isn’t much, I do have some 4X4 experience with my most recent real 4WD trip being the Rubicon last summer with my brother. I’m not afraid to scrape it, bang it, wheel it so if anyone knows of some moderate trails and wants to go wheeling, get in touch.

The secret part is just being cautious. Trails can get hard to follow at times, so knowing where it is so as not to veer off onto private land can be a problem. Also, most riders are responsible, but some are not. Part of the irresponsible thing can be riders blazing new trails off to the side, or leaving crap on the trail, or generally being disrespectful of the land and the neighbors. Most towns and owners have a relatively short fuse for this sort of thing and trails can and do get closed quickly if abused.

So announcing publicly available exact locations of a trail head can lead to a few causing the loss of trail access for us all. It's best to join a local club, better yet would be one part of a larger organization. There you can learn locations, responsible riding, and get a ton of vehicle information and help. Hard core looking clubs go on easier trails too, as we don't want to beat our trucks to death either. My club has acquired many members who started with stock trucks, did the easier trails or used proper go-arounds on tougher trails, until they built their trucks up to higher levels of ability. The club members know which trails may be too difficult, and are also there to keep you safe should you wish to push your personal envelope.

I don't live in Rockland but I am 5 min from Bear Mtn. Do you have any wheeling ideas or you just want to meet?
