OFF-ROAD Trip - HELP!

Hey Everyone,

I'm trying to plan an off-road trip with a bunch of co-workers. I'm still a noob in the Jeep world, so I need your help on Trails, Advice, and possibly a Guide.

Some Background:
We all work for Jeep digital, out of Toronto and we wanted to do something cool for the team, so we decided to take everyone Off-Roading!. We got our hands on 4 Wranglers and a big group of people that want to go

Date:
June 23rd

Trail Location:
TBD. Need something that stock Wranglers can handle.
Any suggestions?

Cars:
- 4 Stock Wranglers
- My Wrangler (JKUR with 3.5" lift and 315) no winch

I would really appreciate any help, and would really like a guide to come along. It would be ideal to have one support vehicle with a winch out there.

Thanks,

Phil.

Not in your area, but I guide for Jeep Jamboree in the states. Few things to consider taking with you.. again depends on what kinds of trails..

1. tow straps with looped ends, no metal hooks.
2. Food water etc.
3. Map of the area your going to.
4. Cell phone/cb
5. tools to change tire.
6. Few basic hand tools.. hammer screw drivers, duck tape.
7. Let someone not going know were your going and when you plan to be back.

Have fun.

Thanks for the notes. I'm hoping the trails aren't too challenging, as this is a first time for everyone and the Jeeps are stock. I wish there was Jamboree up here in Canada.

From what i've searched so far, it looks like the closest trails to Toronto are about 2.5 hours away...

Anyone else out there willing to help or know of any close beginner trails??

Might be an idea to reach out a local off road club and see if you can hire one of their more senior and experienced members to act as a guide. They'll be able to take you to an appropriate trail, give you advice on how best to drive any obstacles, and have a rig that can pull you out of any sticky spots you might get into. Having a guide will allow you to really enjoy the day knowing that an expert has your back.

Guide for Hire

Thanks for the tips guys. I reached out to a few clubs, hopefully i hear back from them. The link to Everytrail.com is great too. I hope the stock wranglers can go through them.

Any guides out there for hire?
