There's a real nice trail right off of Dover road heading west, it's on the right side. If you go through the light(intersection of Dover and 530) you went too far. But yeah that trail is a nice longgggg trail, quite serious too so if you don't have clearance I wouldn't go through it

That's the area me and my guys hangout at, havnt been exploring in awhile but there are a lot of open trails right off of 530 and Dover road. I say go down them and if you come up to a big puddle get out and measure the depth, that's what I do when I go out to new places. And another good spot me and my friends go a few times a month is Colliers Mills in New Egypt, it's a wildlife reserve but your allowed to driving through it, a lot of trails and there's a huge area that's like 8 football fields long and 2 football fields wide, in the middle is grass and around it is just a pact down sand and dirt trail with a lot of puddles to have fun in but there's plenty of room to driving around the puddles of you don't wanna get dirty

Crystal lake was a mine operated by ASARCO (American Smelting and Refining Company) then bought by Heritage Minerals. They used to mine Titanium. Lots of soft sand, mud, and trails going in every direction. not legal, but most of NJ isn't legal either. The site was a hazardous waste site regulated by the New Jersey DEP and federal nuclear regulatory commission due to concentrations of monazite-(Ce) waste product, in other words, dont drink the water out there!

there are alot cops on quads and dirt bikes in the woods there, and zero warnings, just tickets. i work in the toms river manchester area and see them entering and exiting the trails all the time, the go in through whiting or off 530. they are also removing hazardous material for about 6 months now and have patrols threwout the area. i'd stay clear of that lake its not worth it

Yeah thanks for all the info. I heard the problems from others as well. Not going to hit it as no need for a ticket. I hit a few other pits Sunday. Was a good time.

From Bayville..(Berkeley)... live across from easy access to a few large pits... were always out there. Stay away from Sarco which starts in Manchester and ends in Whiting... it's a 2c felony criminal trespassing charge if caught

They can be a blast but getting lost out there can turn into a 8 hour ordeal. If your lucky enough to go out right after they flatten out the trails you can have a lot of fun
