Will do, but how do you know it isn't legal? Looks like it's used a lot.

Isn't there any place to go wheeling in Jersey?

Technically......no. State Parks and WMAs take up a mjority of the forest. Read my post about south jersey a few posts back and it will give you the regs of everything possible within Jersey. To go into any pit within a state park or wma is considered off of the established trail. The rest of the pits are priovate property which you need written permission from the owner which will be very difficult due to it makes him liable for anyone who wishes to press a lawsuit. Established Trails with the state parks and WMAs are legal to drive down but not legal to tear up, it would be destruction of property. There is also the whole "established trail" thing. You know whats considered an established traiol just as well as anyone else, it is strictly the opinion of the state park police if you run into one. To go off in a swamp and cut your own ruts, you are looking at big fines. Destruction of property, destruction of wetlands (DEP fine), paying for plantlife that you destroyed (up to every blade of grass) That can easily equal up to 10sd of thousands of dollars of fines. As of now the only thing legal in the state is to drive down trails and tread lightly, or to get wriitten permission to enter someones land. Luckily a good mud park location is being looked into by state officials as we speak. I highly reccomend you reading my post and the links I provided. Not only will you know whats legal and what is not, but at that point you have the proper knowledge just incase you get harrassed

what mudboy is saying to be blunt. Stay on main dirt roads, tread lightly, and hope the park police are in a good mood.

NJ has basically outlawed all off-roading. No Trucks, Jeeps, Quads. All criminals in the states eyes. I understand there are those who break the law, but if they gave them a place to do it legally without hassle I think that would solve allot of the problems they have now. If you do it after that then shame on you!

i was out in a pit today and there was a sign no unregestered vehicals, no dumping trash, no smimming, it was right in the pit area i think that would make it legal right? probably not i bet lol.
