yes, there made beaten trails, the only rules is you cant drive through the open fields, you have to be out by 9 and you cant swim in the lake which as you can tell by my previous post the rules are loosley enforced lol

off of 539 you take colliers mill road. at the east colliers mill road, at the end of the road the pavement and ends and a dirt road starts, which is kind of the main road through the mill. just go through and explore, if you follow it down to success lake there are some good mud holes that branch off the main dirt road.

if wanna go back and explore id be happy to go do a little wheelin with ya

Any idea if the trails show up on gps since it sounds like it is a legitimate trail not made by a random person

I got down to collier mills today. It was a nice quiet ride. Once I went off the main trail and into the small sand ones it was fun. It was just very easy it get lost in the maze of small side trails. I did a few times lol

thats why i like it, like a said before its good for some nice relaxing trail riding, the more you go the more you find too, theres a couple good spots to hit a ways in. i was there today actually

easiest way there is to take 539 to east colliers mill road, at the end of that road is the dirt road into the mill

its all good, i think the fishing is pretty decent, i think there is bass out there but i could be wrong. the first lake is where most people fish, if you stay straight on the dirt road quite a ways back is success lake that me and friends swim. theres also some good mud holes back that way

I'm a new Jeeper who works out that way and would be interested in meeting up as well if that'd be ok. I've only had my Wrangler a few weeks and have yet to take it off road, so a "nice easy" trail sounds pretty inviting -- let me know when you're heading out that way if you wouldnt mind showing me around too!

We got to Colliers Mills every now and then. We were just there on Fathers Day. Lots of sand and a few mud holes. We went all the way back to Success Lake to do some fishing. The main road to success lake is on the gps for awhile, and ends just before the lake. Just keep going it will be on your left.
There is also another good area for playing around in if you take a right just after entering the mill. We take my wifes jku sahara(stock) and do just fine.
We have also gone out to assunpink wildlife mgt area. It is similar to Colliers Mills but with some more mud, and trails. Good fishing there also. Assunpink is located near Rossevelt, nj or off of exit 11 on 195.

I took a spur of the moment ride out there earlier today (just after an absolute DOWNPOUR) and had a blast. I've only had my Jeep (1st one) for about a month, and this was my first time going off road. As Jeffd34 said, lots of sand on the trails, but there is a muddy/marshy area to the right that was fun to play around in. Not sure if it was a result of all the rain, but a large portion looked like a lake/swamp .. normally like that?
