First time at Wharton

Been doing a decent amount of research about Wharton but haven't been able to find a good route for a beginner in a stock JK.

I wish I knew about this place when attending rutgers, oh well.

Anyway, does anyone have any general starting and exit points or general trail directions for a newb like myself?

Thanks in advance!

best bet is to tag along with someone, there are a few of us out there two or three times a month so your bound to link up with someone. Im heading out this Thursday during the day if you are off/free. The killer with warton is that there are a ton of water holes and you need to know what ones you can try and what ones to go around.

that said my stock lj on 31s did great in there until I started to modify it

Start at Atsion ranger station. Grab their trail map(-although it doesn't help much). Have a gps or phone w GPS/maps and a full tank of gas. I ran around there about 3-4 hours. We hit some really tight trails with some of those deep water holes, but made I out no prob. There wasn't much rain leading up to our ride. Go w at least 1 other jeep and a tow strap. I have a winch, so I tend to ride alone (dumb idea).

Just enough to get through most of the time,
get stuck sometimes, and still get home
