Hey everyone I live in upper DE and me an my buddy's have been looking for a place we could do some trails and then primative camp along the way? I kno of Rousch Creek, we are just looking for other places as well, please let me kno!
Check out Wharton state forest in NJ, tons of riding and they have a few primitive campgrounds you can use. They only cost $7 a night and the riding is free. Look at the local forums for NJ, groups go out every couple weeks.
You always needed a permit but they never enforced it before. I heard they are starting to fine people and towing cars parked without permits. I rode some of the property and never had a permit but I think I am getting one next year.
