Offroading in DE

Hey guys,
So i own a 06' Wrangler Unlimited and I've been itching to take it off-road. I've been down to the canal in middletown couple times and its been real fun every time but I'm looking for somewhere new, preferably in the woods! i just wanna take it through some trees and over some rocks. Anybody know good places around here?? I don't have a lift kit or any huge tires yet so i can't go up a mountain or anything but i really just wanna take a road less traveled. Hope ya can help!

Eastern Short Jeep has wheeling land. Eastern Shore Jeep Association
It is a lot of mud but its good times and they are starting to get a lot of Concrete obstacles as well. It's a lot of fun for a stock jeep. Its located in Delmar over near the track. Check out the ESJA boards for more info.

Not really trees and rocks but if you're wanting to get off pavement Cape Henalopen is usually a pretty good time. Jeeps, beach and fishing. Can't get a whole lot better than that!

Just as a heads up wheeling at the Canal is illegal and if the wildlife ranger sees you off the roads there you will get a ticket.

If you stay on the roads you are cool but any off shoot and it can cost you some $$$

Rausch creek is a blast. Make sure you take a camera you will kick your self if you don't. If your going in Jan you may see some snow up there which adds to the fun.

Love going to Rouch definitely good times. Just wish I wasn't so broke or I would be looking to take a trip up.
