I live right by Carranze memorial, If you are heading to wharton def stay away from 1/4 mile and aunt jemima hill. They have been cracking down on those places hard because of the ignorant teenagers partying and leaving trash out there! I cant do the trip on the 19th but almost every Friday night I am out cruising those trails.

I agree, just gives me something to do during the night when I get bored. nothing really to "wheel". couple small holes. Perfect for beginners learning their jeep and checking to make sure everything works.

it gets worse once it rains more. there are mud holes that will swallow your truck easy if your not careful.

Was never supposed to be a killer wheeling spot, just some nice trail rides. In all honesty all of the good wheeling in this state(southern) is already privately owned. This state sucks for wheeeling.......as of now at least

they were my washout holes after a good day of wheeling. stop open doors and let the water flow through. Clean alot of the stuff off of the underbody. But technically that road is mostly owned by the same company who owns the powerlines. The powerline companies undergo an environmental survey regulary so its easier to just maintain the roads than pay the fines

Depends on what you mean by "legal". The only thing defined in rules is that you have to stay on the "established trails" As of this moment there is no "established trails" it is strictly out of opinion, which is ****ed up in my view. The powerline trail that goes behind the raceway I'd say is legal (strictly a guess), however that big sandy hill would technically not be nor the swamp on the bottom of teh hill nor the swamp at the very end of the trail where it comes up to the Mullica River. Across the street from the Atco raceway, the trail would also be legal, however all of teh holes off to the sides would not be, nor the horseshoe at the end where it comes up to hayes mill creek. i should really do a whole post seperatley on Wharton just so people know what they are getting into if they decide to go out there.

This is so true. I have been in Tabernacle/chatsworth area my whole life and everything is open to interpretation and how the rangers or cops feel that day. I had a freind riding thru wharton trails (legal part) that pulled up on the side into a little brush to let a fellow jeeper go by and a ranger came around the corner and ticketed him for being off the main trail. Yet another time had a ranger take me down an "illegal" trail to show me an old foundation.

We are currently working on this. If you are interested in helping out and keeping the area open and compromising with people of all different groups and interests check out NJTLC. I'm a founding member along with a few other 4x4 guys and a few environentalists. This is not just a forum it is a large group of people with meetings and if you don't plan on helping/participating and just signing up there to watch i will look to have you removed. Sorry if alot of the things I "Type" are blunt.
