Just got a TJ, looking for trails

So....first post. A little background; I had a YJ last summer, and absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, the frame was rotted pretty bad, and I couldn't keep it. So, I just picked up a TJ about a week ago. I'll attach some pictures.

Anyway, I live in Central MA, I'm looking for someone with knowledge of any trails? Either south of Worcester, or around where I go camping in Foster, RI. I have absolutely NO experience off road. I want to eventually join a club and go out with a bunch of guys, but before that 'd really like to go out by myself. Well, with a buddy, so by ourselves...just to get a feel for it. Nothing too crazy.

I know no one likes to give away the locations of anywhere they know for obvious reasons, and I completely understand and respect that. If anyone wants to help a noob out, let me know. You can PM me if you don't want to post it on here.

you're central mass grandzj. I run with northshore jeepers and when they finally go on a trail my jeep is able to do, patriot jeepers. Not many trails unless you go really western mass. Like springfield west

Springfield is actually only abut 20-30 minutes away from me. I'm right between Worcester and springfield. And bluerubicon where does patriot jeepers mainly go? As in western mass, north shoe, cape...ect I'm looking for a club. And tusconzj the north shore is about 2 hours from me, but my girlfriend lives up that way so some wheeling up there would be fun

Most every club goes to the same places in Western MA and Southern NH. Not really anything east of 495.

Some clubs do have access to private land but as the others have said a club is the best way to learn the sport and get access. I'm with Baystate Jeepers and we go to western ma and all over NH. Baystatejeepers.com is our site and we have a decent forum. Jonfund is another club in the area and they have several private properties accessible thru them or as pay to play with a number clubs....
