stokes state forest is good for stock jeeps, and lifted, depends how well you know the trails, just go along brook rd (seen on mapquest) and take the side trails and travel at your own risk. certain spots will say no vehicles beyond this point. i respect those signs, and i do not go in the mud pits because those are ticket spots where people have gotten tickets and just rip the signs down too.. certain people ruin it for us more respectful jeepers.. but ill be going around september 20th ISH once i have my license and front track bar replaced. ill invite you then, i know the trails very well. i have a lifted v8 zj on 4" of lift and 32 mud terrains.

I went to stokes this past weekend and didn't really find much. I'd like to go with someone who knows the area better. It's definitely more than fine for stock from what I saw buts it's cool to cruise around and do some hiking too.

You won't find any excitement at any of the NJ sites. If you want to test yourself and ur rig, go to Rausch Creek...

I'd like to get back out to rausch after I get my front axle swapped out. The jersey section is awfully quiet though. I've wheeled with a bunch of jks but I'd like to get out with some older rigs.
