I'd be interested in going there even if it is just to ride bikes through there too, I find there is a shortage of decent single track places around here yet.

Thats what everyone says about fire roads, but I've been to a few (LEGAL) unmaintained roads and had a good time. Of course, if you go there looking to crawl all day you'll be disappointed, but that not the fun of it for me. If they are only fun in a Vette, I do have resi shocks that enjoy a couple whoops here and there

Hey Everybody,

I live in Fishkill, NY too. I'm always looking for places to go offroading. I've been to 909/Tyrell road... nothin special, but at least there's no worry of getting in trouble.

I'm glad to see there are others in the area interested in doing some wheeling. Keep me posted.

If we all want to hit some trails we should organize something for Rausch Creek in the spring. Definitely worth the trip for a few days of camping/wheeling.

How come you have to flat tow your Jeep? And I would be up for any type of offroading, I haven't been since the summer. Rausch Creek might work well for me considering its just as far from where I live in NY as it is from where I go to school in DC.

Haha, well yea that'll definitely make it difficult to drive to RC. And no I haven't been yet but I've been itching to go so you'll have to keep me posted so we can take more pictures of our Jeeps on rocks .

bunch a TJ'ers who know nothing of YJ's i've run mine without either for years. they're not needed as much with leaves instead of coils. I'm sure he's got another reason for flat towing.
