Fords/Edison trails

I'm wondering if there are any off road trails in central NJ area, I'm new to NJ and being a Jeep owner and wanted to do some light off-roading. I heard there was in Raritan Bay Area.. Thanks

Thanks Kaspar! Just did some google mapping and there seems to be a bunch of dirt roads back there. Did you enter the trail through the lot?

Definitely check out colliers mills, easy fun ride with some hills to climb. I got stuck back there once and don't have a winch though so I don't suggest going alone.

No, you're good to go back there. Anywhere they don't want you to go is blocked off.

I checked out raritan center just one trail near the entrance to the expo center, lots of debris on the trail so didn't go far. The other trail in the lot was blocked by truckers....

I did stop at stokes forest on my way back from Upstate ny and had a blast, tons of trails near Tillman rd area.

Just saw this thread, didn't know about Colliers Mills. Going to check it out as it's only about a 1/2 hour south of me and a shorter drive then going to Warren Grove Rec area or Penn State forest.

Thanks for the info.

Interesting about Raritan Center, be careful though, there are always reports from time to time about finding old un-exploded ordinance when they do new construction!
