    Pine Barrens First Timer Questions

    Hey forum!

    Would like to take a my first trip out to the Pine Barrens in late October. Both myself and my dad are bringing are JKU DD's and will be hitting the easy/beginner trails.

    Are there any permits of paperwork that has to be filled out? Any recommendations are trails/areas to hit? We want to be able to hit some good trails but then also drive the long trip back home.

    All I have to tell you is avoid the water like the plague. Those holes are a lot deeper than they look. As far as anything else goes I don't know and don't want to know. I personally would rather see you make the trek to Rausch creek and run there green trails instead but that's just me

    I'll 3rd Rausch creek. Most of the pine barrens have recently been shut down to off-roading.

    I don't even believe the pine barrens are legal to ride. Not that people don't just no official areas that are strictly for jeeps. Rausch creek is a way better idea you can even take and intro class there.

    Where do you live in Jersey? I assume you want to go to Wharton St Forest.

    Wharton can be fun but its big. You can really get lost out there if you dont know where to go. Secondly, like Coz said, water can be alot deeper than it looks. You may find yourself turning around alot. And probably most important, stay off of posted trails. There has been a major shutdown of the forest due to "illegal offroad activity" They will fine you if caught. Take the extra trip and go to Rausch Creek.

    The trails that are there are very tight and you will be scratching the hell out of your paint just a heads up I went there once and won't go back there again with the new jeep ...

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
