Northeast Trail Tour
So as winter break begins the boredom of being home from college has also. To pass the time and get some much needed trail experience I proposed the idea of taking my JKU on a little trail tour of the northeast U.S. It is still just an idea but that is the reason I am posting here. I don't know of many trails to begin with! I am a new wrangler owner (just over a year) and have only been able to get my Jeep to the local beach or bumpy gravel road, no way for a Wrangler to live in my opinion, so I need some help discovering new areas to play around on. As I said before, I am not real experienced off road but the best way to learn is from experience so I am really looking forward to hitting some trails. Beginner trails are mainly what I am looking for, not a flat dirt road with some bumps but more along the lines of small rock crawling, shallow mudding and rivers, and some moderate grades to traverse. I am beginning my trip on Long Island near Commack and would like to, loosely, follow this guide; Port Jeff ferry to Connecticut up through Massachusetts, across to upstate New York down through Pennsylvania and finally driving back through the big apple and onto the island. If anyone knows any trails in those states that are beginner/moderate and open to the public please feel free to post them here, I would really appreciate it. Also, if anyone from the island or the states included would like to join you are more then welcome! We will be staying at small motels or public camp grounds and the entire trip should take between a week and 2 weeks depending on trail time, weather, or any other mishaps. Cost should be moderate with the bulk being gas, food and possibly a place to stay. All in all it should be a very fun time for anyone who likes wheeling. So please post any trails in those states and let me know if your interested! Trip leaves January 2nd!
