Dude, I live just south of White Plains. Where is this place? Shoot me a pm if you don't want it to be public...

Thanks!

Its a friends property, we are trying to get a group to go up for a weekend soon.

jstone326 05-10-2011 07:59 PM

Oh cool, I got excited, thought it was a public place, but that's still cool that he has property like that! There sure isn't many places to go around here!

aromboli 05-11-2011 10:52 AM

Not at all! I want to get a few people to go up maybe early june... you know of any jeep meet ups goin on around the area?

jstone326 05-11-2011 08:19 PM

Nothing real close, I think there's a Connecticut Jeep Club that meets, also Long Island has a Jeep club that meets regularly too, but i don't know of anything in Westchester.

How was it?

mathjak 09-13-2011 03:36 AM

just alot of non maintained roads which i think may be a lot of fun in the snow. nice roads go through promised land state park.

jstone326 09-13-2011 08:40 PM

Damn, you got me excited :)

dpalms 09-15-2011 01:24 PM

I am in Bedford Hills in northern westchester. I know a few friends who ride on illegal areas (not official trails for public) around in northern westchester but I have not asked them where exactly yet. I think you just have to know the right people who know the right spots ;-)

If you want to do some real off-roading head out to Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in PA and make a weekend out of it. It will be lightyears beyond tooling around in someones backyard.

I actually just did that last weekend, and it was defintely worth it!! I don't know how it can get much better than that.

wrangler0 11-02-2011 12:00 PM

Anyone heading out to Raush Creek on the 13th for the 201 ride???

I'll be there!!

Irongrave 11-02-2011 09:42 PM

I might be out there the following weekend with either my YJ or dads new TJ the RC guided rides are a waste of time and money IMO join a local club and wheel with them RC already cost $35-$45 a day to wheel there

I'd have to disagree, while I've only done one guided ride there so far, it was great.
A great way to get introduced to driving off road. Well worth it to me. I look forward to this next one.

I'd love to join a club, but it's hard for me to get a full day off on weekends which is when I assume most clubs go wheeling.....

Hey All,

New to the site, getting a new '12 this week. Definitely looking for a place within an hour or so of Westchester County to ride- nothing crazy but something offroad (legal or not). It's been very difficult researching this on the internet, despite the vast # of offroaders out there. If you hear anything, please shoot me a message. Would love to get out there and dirty up some brand new wheels.

NB

Inked-dad324 11-26-2011 06:08 PM

I'm in westchester county too an getting a jeep soon. I have an element right now and looking to trade my motorcycle for a jeep...

spinmove29 11-27-2011 01:13 PM

Well if you hear or think of any place (even something basic/easy) in the area... just hoping not to drive down to the barrens for a first run.

Irongrave 11-27-2011 02:07 PM

Rausch Creek is actually a shorter drive then the pines from the Tappen Zee bridge

spinmove29 11-27-2011 02:37 PM

Just want to take it into the dirt/mud a bit before driving out to PA or even the barrens. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could clue me in to a couples of places in the Westchester area to go... e-mail me off list. noahaaronb@gmail.com

aromboli 01-28-2012 03:11 PM

I know it last minute; but I'm trying to get a few people that wanna go wheelin tomorrow. I hav private property about an hour and a half north of white plains NY. There is about 40+ acres. Message me if interested. I'm planning on leaving white plains around 7am.
