Get yourself some good topos, a GPS, and take a look at Google Maps. And BTW its the "Pine Barrens" otherwise known as the "Pinelands." The Atsion Ranger station on 206 is a popular place to enter Wharton State Forest. There are closer options though. Google "Colliers Mills Wildlife Management Area"-its about 12,000 acres in northern Ocean County.

They're pretty sandy as you get to some parts it's more sandy and you sink alot easier but some parts are a little more packed its also swampy at some parts

The good thing about the pines is the miles and miles of trails. Nowhere else in NJ will you find so much easily accessible public land. Between the state forests and WMAs there are literally hundreds of miles of trails. The bad thing is that it gets kind of repetitive sometimes-it's very flat, and the terrain doesn't change a whole lot. There aren't any rocks unless you count pea gravel It's all sand, gravel, and clay. Also, it's very wet-there are some trails that turn into rivers after a good rain-couple that with some deep holes along the trail that you can't see and you can get swallowed pretty easily. I did a lot of wheeling in Colliers Mills WMA in Jackson when I lived closer.
