south jersey power lines

On the way to Atlantic City to lose money I have noticed going south in Ocean running alongside the Parkway, power lines with trails running under them.Is it ok to ride on them and if so where can I get on them besides driving off the parkway witch would be illegal.

I THINK power lines are legal to drive on since there fire roads

Very Illegal you dont want to get caught back there especially the ones that run from lacey down to exit 58,The fines are expensive and risk your vehicle being impounded

I was riding my local powerlines and a copper pulled up, so we walked over and started bsing with him we asked if we were allowed here and he said as far as i know i didnt see you here.

He was looking for somone who may have tried to run that way, he didnt really care but my impression is no. Besides, if they do try to get you...GO THROUGH A MUD HOLE and drive away!

We just kick back and relax for an hour or two and drive home.

the ones by 58 are legendary. They have quite a history. Get caught back there now and you will be screwed. Also there is nothing there for anything under 40"s. Even 40"s are limited to what they'd be able to do. Also the locals are VERY territorial. 3 things working against people.

OMG.... I grew up in NJ (exit 67) we were always goining out to the power lines and the fire tower, good times.. good times, now this is "back in the day" 1986ish and back then the cops didn't have the equipment to chase after us... and they realy didn't care about us wheeling ... it was how drunk some of the people would get and then drive
