jeepers29 Until you have permission from the land owner, consider it illegal.

Like a judge said once: "Doesn't matter if you didn't know who the land belongs to, you knew it doesn't belong to you".

If you don't KNOW the land is OK to wheel, better to assume it's NOT than to assume it IS.

Myself I would err on the side of caution and not go there till I knew exactlly what the rules/laws were.

TJDave X2. Just because there is no sign telling you to stay out, by no means does that mean it's ok to take your Jeep there. Even if it looks like a trail/road that has been previously traveled.

I don't have a sign on my lawn, or the rock wall on my property. But I sure as hell don't want anyone driving their Jeep on it.

Yep; I have no idea how things are in NC, but here in PA if you don't have explicit permission to be on the land, it's illegal and you're trespassing. If you're caught the first time I believe it's a $300 fine, the second time they can take your vehicle.

Plus it gives the rest of us a bad name.

cfarlow89 If you're looking for a good place to camp and wheel in NC, check out Uwharrie National Forest in Troy, NC. You're probably around 3 to 4 hours away, but it makes for a fun weekend in the Jeep. Only costs 5 bucks for a pass at the El Dorado Outpost and they give you a free map.

Barrie Fair warning people, WF takes a very dim view of ANY illegal wheeling. All it is, is ammo for the tree huggers to use against us.

bmbillups So you think id be ok under the lines if i dont tear it up out there? If cops catch you would there be fines?

Dusty Rhodes I have wheeled on "pole line roads" many times. No problems. Some of them are really cool and one in particular crosses a nice little stream that is secluded and almost impossible to get to other than the pole road.
I have been "caught" driving on unmarked property but I calmly say " I take nothing but photographs and leave nothing but tire tracks. I respect other peoples stuff, I will leave right now".
One land owner even said "Aw go ahead but don't make a habit out it". He had followed me for a few minutes in his truck and watched me for quite a while.

Help with trail warning signs

I live in Wilmington, NC. Just moved here from WV. Almost all the trails you can find around here have 'no trespassing' or 'posted' signs on them so i obviously dont bother with them. I found one trail that looked like it led to power lines, it did have a sign but it read 'warning. survalence cameras in use. all illegal activity will be recorded.' Thats all it said, nothing about private property or no trespassing. Would it be legal to ride on the trail? What do you guys think?
Thanks!!!
