NJ Trails....Suggestions

Hey guys. Ive taken the girl out on some pretty nasty stuff (probably not by many of your standards), and now she wants to give it a go. Are there any trails that may as well be roads in the state? Kinda like a scenic type of thing? I wanna let her take the Jeep offroad, but don't want her to wreck it either.

Any thoughts? Maybe shell sell the trailblazer and pick up a 2011

Wharton points - Google Maps

On the right side of the Atsion Ranger Station there is Quaker Bridge Road and when I was down there, it was easily accessible. Just scroll through the back roads on the link I provided and stay away from the areas if you don't like the sound of their description.

If you are up in the Northern part of the state, Stokes has some mild trails and nice scenery.



There is a Stokes thread on this forum. Check it out.

Stokes and Wharton are your to-go places for legal wheeling. There's nothing out there that would thrill an experienced off-roader but it's perfect for taking friends and family out for their first ride off the pavement.

If you're looking to go a bit farther, try Rausch Creek in PA. Also, click link in my sig for the NJJC - we organize trips to various places, have some private land to wheel on, and have a lot of great folks who will help you out.

Mud, I'm from Cape May and would like a tour of Wharton one day. I know the usual, Oswego Lake, Godfreys Bridge, Apple Pie Hill etc but I am sure there is more to see.

Not sure when I could do this. Most of my time out there is during the night hours. I have no problem showing people around out there. Whatever I was to do would be mild though.

also Cherry Ridge Rd in Highland Lakes NJ. It connects highland lakes to the ever famous Clinton Rd. in West Milford. pretty nice trail ride mostly, some rocks and little stuff to play around can also sometimes be pretty muddy. PM me if intrested in checkin it out one day, my girlfriend lives in highland lakes so she knows exactly how to get there.

Don't like Cherry Ridge because it runs into Wawayanda and I'm not sure if you can wheel there.

However, with a hunting license and a Watershed vehicle permit you can drive all the fire roads and marked trails just south of there:

It could be legal - it might be just like when you go into the park and take that right onto Wawayanda Rd, then left at Cross Rd, then left at Iron Mountain Road. You can drive on those, but those are more like hunting access roads than anything to wheel.
