Offroad Trails in New Jersey - Jeep & Truck 4x4 Trails in NJ

Let's talk about 4x4 offroad trails in New Jersey.

This article covers Jeep trails, OHV trails, truck/SUV trails, and four wheeling trails in NJ.

Fun Fact, New Jersey is the 4th smallest state in the United States.  However, don't let this small size fool you; NJ is home to the 11th largest population by state, so between this small state size and large population of over 9 million people there isn't a ton of room set aside for us offroading enthusiasts to explore our hobby/sport/lifestyle.  This makes my job of writing an article that covers offroad trails in New Jersey a very easy task, but it's probably a little more disappointing for you if your searching the internet for where to go wheeling in NJ.  Don't worry though, you have come to the right place, Where2Wheel is a fantastic resource to find offroad trails for Jeeps and trucks anywhere in the US.  The easiest way to find places to wheel is to create a free Where2Wheel account and then checkout the Where2Wheel Trails Map, but keep on reading if you want to hear about THE place to go offroading in New Jersey.

Alright, so your set on hitting the 4x4 trails in NJ.  It looks like you are going to be heading to Pine Barrens in Wharton State Park in Hammonton, New Jersey.  Like I stated above, Pine Barrens is THE place to go offroading in NJ, but if you only have one option, this isn't a bad one.  Pine Barrens has over 500 miles of unpaved roads that wind through the hundred thousand plus acres of Wharton State Park.  Often these unpaved roads more closely resemble mudpits than they do roads, so make sure you are packing some serious tread on your tires.

Before you head out to hit the trails, there are a few things that you should know about Pine Barrens.  "Offroading" aka leaving the designated roads is illegal and will land you in serious trouble with the Forest Rangers - Stay The Trail.  Inside Pine Barrens your vehicle must be "street legal" meaning licensed and registered.  Speeds should not exceed 20mph while exploring these unpaved roads, and 4WD strongly is recommended.  Lastly after some rain, the park becomes extremely muddy to the point where roads are impassible to stock vehicles, so use that info however you like.
