Trails/Dirt Roads

Just got a Jeep and my young kids are dying to go for "a ride in the forest." I want to keep it very tame because my Wrangler is 100% stock and it is a daily commuter. My oldest is 4 so he would probably be happy with a bumpy dirt road with a few puddles. We are in Tewksbury and would love it if we could find a place close to home.

Thanks for your help.

You don't have to baby your Jeep , it's a Jeep ! these things go through the Rubicon stock ! Mine is also my daily driver and I have been through the Rubicon twice and to moab , and go wheeling all the time .Show the kids a good time , you don't have to baby it and you will also learn to wheel at the same time .Now get your ass out there , why did you buy it ?

Bought this one as a family car and don't really want to beat it up (I know it is a Jeep and it can take it, but it only has a couple thousand miles on it so we would like to keep it looking nice as well) so we want to keep it to light trails. Also, plan on going on my own and don't really want to risk getting stuck in the woods with little kids. Plan on buying a CJ over the winter for 4-wheeling.

Couple of options. Join a local club, usually $50, they know ALL the spots and there are a lot of clubs near you. Hit up the local police department, be honest with them. You want to take your little ones on a dirt road, something safe, but give them the feel of adventure. The cops will understand, and will usually point you to something legal and what you are looking for in town or in the area. And another is to find unimproved roads or fire access roads, which I think if you google DEP department of environmental protection ( work with me, iPad here) it may come up with roads around your area.
Btw, many clubs have free forums, you could ask there for dirt roads. Good luck!
