I'm in Montvale, just over the border from ya! I can't help you much other than Rausch Creek in PA from what I've heard. Haven't made it there yet myself. They do have a "Crawl for Cure" event coming in October 23rd. See details here:

Crawl for the Cure

Rausch Creek is the closest place that I'm aware of....
I've been there once and had a great time!! Well worth the drive to go out there...

About 3 hours....

From Yonkers, where I live now, I think it took me 2 1/2 hours....

Well worth the drive even if only going for the day.

I spent the night in a hotel the night before, then the next day did the OffRaod 101-102 guided tour.....lots of fun!!

I live in Port Jefferson Station. Years ago we use to go to a little area off Belmead Road that never got developed. But ther is a no traspass sign up now although I still see tracks in there. There was also an opening off Upper Sheep Pasture. Known as the dumps. It baacked up to the Lilco power lines. Other wise, there is nothing by me either.

Hey Rick, Tom from Bergen County NJ. Since we are neighbors and we don't have anything that I have found in my neighborhood, I'd definitely be interested in getting something rolling. Let me know what's up....
