1. You know just because something is state property it's not necessarily fair game right?
2. I can guarantee that not every power line trail in CT is owned by the state. Many of them are easements over private property.
3. Lack of trespassing signs DO NOT give you "permission" to be anywhere. You might want to study up on the State's trespassing laws.
4. Flying by a cop's house so he didn't bother you...that's mature.
5. You obviously have a lot to learn about responsible wheeling. Going where ever you want, just because "no body bothers me there" is irresponsible and makes the rest of us who are trying to do it the legal, responsible way look bad.

well first of all, let me state the fact that at least i know how to count. and second, cops can't say anything about trespassing if it's not posted.

oh and lastly, this thread is here to tell this kid where there are wheeling trails. i simply stated where i go wheeling. lay off my back, please and thank you.

FYI, discussing illegal wheeling on this forum will get you banned. I'd C&D before a mod shuts it down.

It doesn't say no trespassing on my front door, does that mean you can walk right into my house?

LAY OFF! i just told him where i go wheeling. that's it. i never ask for any of your opinions, and just keep them to yourselves. that's where me and all my friends go and we haven't had any problems yet. so just give me a damn break. none of you are even from Connecticut so why are you even bothering?

I tresspass all the time when I go wheeling. However I don't post about it online and then try to argue about it and make ignorant statements.

For the future, those locations are better shared via a PM.

The reason why we get pissed is because it's idiots like you that make it so I have to drive 3 hours to get in decent wheeling.

Wheel illegally/irresponsibly = Trails get shut down.

See if you can think beyond your own 3" d*ck before saying "who cares" next time.

You can always go behind the Portland fairgrounds, not sure if that's legal or not but a ton of people go there. VERY easy to get stuck if you go off the main trail!
And in Berlin, there's a trail that's name something like Carabetta trails. I've never been down it, but my friends go all the time, no one's said a word to them. Not sure if that's legal or not either.
Might wanna call up both towns to check the legal statuses of them.
Good luck!

Hey, another Southington Jeeper ! I would love to find closer trails.

Been going to Mass, NH and Maine, so always a long drive but worth it.

I thought that was owned by The Carabetta Companies/Carabetta Apartments. Should probably obtain written permission from the landowner if anyone plans to go there to be on the safe side.

As stated previously, your best bet is to join a club. Jonfund members are in your area of the state.

One of the first lessons I learned about wheeling is there are no legal places in CT, therefore I quickly accepted the fact I will be driving a distance to go Jeepin. If you join a club, there is some private property you can wheel on with the club. I have wheeled with the NH crew at ExporingNH.com, leaving my house at 5:00 am, wheel all day, then drive back. They have plenty of class VI roads. Getting a hotel room is always an option, or during the warm weather some people camp out. There is Rausch creek in PA and soome trails in Mass.
I joined a Jeep club in Maine, as my famliy has property there. Awesome trails there and plenty of them.
The expense of traveling to wheel is part of the hobby
