The short answer is there is no public land in RI where 4wd is actually required that is also legal. There are several private parcels of land that area clubs have access to by working with the land owners. The same is true in MA. In NH and VT there are many miles of "class VI" roads that are open to vehicles and offer a reasonable amount of challenge.

Only after extensive hazing period.

Yes. There are many clubs in the area. Take a look around, attend some events, and pick one that you feel the most comfortable with.

there are actually a few roads here and there that definitely require 4wd. you just have to know how to look for them. look at old maps and dirt roads and see where they end up. theres a couple that were completely washed out by the floods and are now "pass at your own risk" areas. they are quite fun

I live within walking distance from several of them and they can all be done in 2WD. I've done it. Not very interesting.

If it was in RI or CT then you were wheeling illegally unless it was private property and you have written permission from the landowner. Best not to talk about such things on the Internet.
