Hubdeep Here's a list that we have been putting together over the last 15 years or so that pretty much covers the Mid-Atlantic states:

MARYLAND

Assateague Island, Worcester County, MD
National Park Service - Requested Page Not Found (404) (U.S. National Park Service)
Yearly permit required ($70). The area consists of 12 miles of sand beach within Maryland and additional beach South into Virginia. It should be stressed that this is nothing more than flat sand.

Green Ridge State Forest, Allegany County, MD
Welcome to the DNR Forest Service - Green Ridge State Forest home page
Green Ridge State Forest offers an 18-mile loop trail located on East Valley and Stafford Roads for off-road vehicles. It should be noted that this trail is a non-technical fire road.

PENNSYLVANIA

Rausch Creek Offroad Park - Joliett, PA (in the area of Tower City & Tremont)
Rausch Creek Off Road Park
A yearly membership fee of $10 is required. This membership fee applies to all drivers and all passengers. Once you are a member, the price to wheel at the park is $35 per day, per vehicle, and $5 per day for passengers. Rausch Creek offers over 1000 acres of terrain for wheeling. Trails range from stock through highly technical.

Rock Run Recreation Area - Western Pa
Western PA 4x4 Trail Advisory Committee :: Index
On site primitive camping will be available for those instances.

The members of the Advisory Committee will be coordinating all trail rides; please do not contact the park for OHV information (they will direct you back to us). The WPA4XTRAC will provide trail guides. Trail rides are limited to 40 participants. Pre-registration for all events is required.

We will offer three trail rides each day: green/low blue, blue/low black, and upper black. We do not have a red trail rating, but we certainly have trails that would garner a red rating at other parks. The trails were cut with smaller SUVs in mind (such as Jeep Grand Cherokees). Full size vehicles will find the trails to be very tight. Suggested equipment is as follows:
Green/low blue: stock vehicles and those with a mild lift (15 vehicles per trailride)
Blue/low black: 33” tires and at least one locker (10 vehicles per trailride). Potential for body and drivetrain damage.
Upper Black: 35” tires(minimum requirement), two lockers, and winch. Body and drivetrain damage are very possible. (15 vehicles per trailride)
To register for one of our trail rides, please include your name, address, phone number, trail selection, club (if applicable) and general vehicle specifics to dan58@marylandcreepers.com. The cost is $25/day plus $5 for passengers. Primitive camping is $10, and you must notify us 1-week prior to camping. Staging for trailrides begins at 0900, with a short drivers’ meeting following.


VIRGINIA

George Washington National Forest - Harrisonburg, VA
George/recreation/ohv/index.shtml
George Washington National Forest (GWNF) offers miles of offroad vehicle travel on its forest service roads. These roads are largely non-technical fire roads however they offer wonderful weekend camping activities.

Crozet - Crozet, VA
http://www.xjsrule.com
Run by Chris and Heather Packard, the site of the Virginia RockCrawling and Offroad Challenge is opened periodically throughout the year for opening wheeling. The trails range from technical to highly technical.

Big Dogs Offroad - Gore, VA
Home
A fee of $75 applies for 3 days or $65 for 2 days. The area is open 4 times a year for seasonal wheeling events. The trails range from technical to highly technical.

Other Notable Areas

Wharton State Forest- Pine Barrens, New Jersey
Department of Environmental Protection
Flat, sand, water, mud.

Uwharrie National Forest - Troy, NC
Uwharrie Off
A fee of $5 per day or $30 per year applies. Individual trails vary in length from 1.2 miles to 3.4 miles, but the ORV area networks the trails that they may be connected in series of un-recrossed lengths of up to about 20 miles. Trails range from stock to highly technical.

This is the best I can give. One of the better Jeep trails has been closed off. But there are still some pretty decent ones for the casual offroader. The intersection can be found on Google maps
Thanks I'll have to check that out

JeepMedic Around Pottsville PA there are all types of trails. If you look up Reading Anthracite atv permits you can find all kinds of info. The permits cost $100 a year and give you access to use around 30 thousand acres of land for wheeling, atving, hunting, etc. You can get to this area without the permit but if your caught it can be big fines. I got them with my buddy and do mostly atvs but Jeeps and trucks do have some trails. I'm not sure if Rausch Creek is still open to Jeeps or if it is just quads and dirt bikes anymore. You can also check out Blue Mountain Jeep Alliance's website to find legal places to go. They also have a board to post on and membership into the club gets you discounts. They are based out of Berks county. Good luck and tread lightly!

Light Wheeling in Southeast PA, South Jersey, DE or MD

Anyone have any recommendations for some places to explore near Southeast PA? Haven't had much of a chance to take the old TJ out in the woods recently and I'm looking for something to do this weekend. It's just a stock daily driver, and most of its off roading has involved work on the farm, getting to hunting spots and driving on forest service and logging roads, so nothing too terribly rough is in the cards. I've heard Wharton SF in Jersey can be interesting to explore, with some odd things to be found here and there. I'd prefer something more mountainous or hilly, though.

Thanks!
