Probably. You need to find out who owns the land. Usually you can contact the county recorder or whoever handles the real estate taxes in your area and find out who it belongs it. From your brief description, my first thought is that it is some kind of right of way or easement for the state land, probably for a utility or pipeline.

Only you can answer whether it is worth the risk to you or not. A lot depends on how the locals, especially the cops, feel about people trespassing, and the trespassing laws in your state and/or the jurisdiction where the land is located. Also, are you sure this is state land and not federal land? In some places it's just a ticket, some places it means going to jail, your ride impounded, and having to post bail, and in some places they hold you in jail until you can see a judge, usually the next day, and they impound your ride. So, is it worth it?
