I am down. When and where.

I have only sort of explored there a coupe of time and just saw some road. Is there anything interesting there?

Either way I am down to explore. Coming from Somerset Co.

I'm down too as long as I don't have other plans already set on whatever date is chosen.

Go down about a mile and there is a road on the right that will lead you into the forest. It was easy trails but I had a blast. Went back up on Sunday too.
Was anything closed (temporary closures for winter)?

Well there were some signs that said road washed out and road closed. But they weren't blocked (no barriers where I drove). And me being me went down them with no problems in my jkur.

Just got back from Stokes about an hour ago. Went up 15 to 206 and turned left onto Struble Rd just when Struble turns to Dingman (Dimon on Google Maps, but I'm sure I saw Dingman Rd on the sign). Anyway, just about the point where Struble turns to Dingman there is a dirt road off to the right. Take that into the forest. That will go for quite a ways until it gets to a tee going right at the tee will bring you out to Brook Rd. Going left will bring you all the way down to Wallpack Cemetery. You can go right from there on a paved road to visit the abandoned town of Wallpack. We turned around and were going to go back the dirt road we drove but I saw Tilman Rd and decided to see if there were any roads off that. We Drove Tilman Rd until we got to Dingman and didn't see any roads to drive at all. However, on Dingman there were two roads that looked promising but they were blocked off so we weren't able to drive them. So we kept on Dingman until we got back to Struble and turned left onto the dirt road we drove originally. When we got back to the tee we went right. Going right leads to a fork in the road the left fork brings you to a closed off bridge going right at the fork brings you up a road that said it is closed, but isn't blocked which we drove anyway. There were a number of little 'jaunts' off the main dirt road within the forest that were a lot of fun (they don't really go anywhere, but some were really fun--I got high centered on a long on one of the 'jaunts' but eventually got over the log). I had to chop another large branch off because of the way it was sticking up in the air in the middle of the road.

All-in-all we (my son and I and our rottweiler) spent about three super fun hours up there and had a really great time.

My buddy at work said that I should check out Culver Lake road--there are some trails up there he said. Next time I go up there I'm going to check that out. We didn't actually go up by Culver Lake.

Just another note. A more advanced driver probably won't take three hours to do all those trails. I'm a newbie offroader and I took everything slow. Still it was a lot of fun...especially if you take all the little side 'jaunts' along the way. (is 'jaunts' the right word for little trails that go nowhere and that you eventually have to turn around and go back to the main road?)

That's definitely not called Dingman Rd, by the way. lol. CR560 is the one also known as Dingmans Rd. Everything is open aside from the trails on the left heading towards Tillmans Ravine and the road to Buttermilk Falls (road being graded/prescribed burns).
