Connecticut Area trails
« on: April 03, 2011, 03:25:54 PM »
Hey northeastjeep.org,just joined today. ive owned a 1997 jeep grandcherokee 4.0l since august2010 and the more i drive it the more i get the jeep bug. Im sure you all know how that is wanting to go off road but Connecticut seems like one of the least friendly states to offroading. I got stock coil overs but chunky tires and brand new ranchero rs5000s im sure it could handle a little mud. if anyone knows any spots in the vernon / mancheste / bolton/ coventry area let me know with a pm or something thanks.

 There are no legal public offroad trails in CT.  The only wheeling opportunities in CT are on Private land and to use them you either need to be a member of a club that has access to it, or by invite/permission of the land owners directly.

 Clubs are always looking for 4x4 friendly landowners to work with.

The northeast in general is not friendly towards motorized recreation.  The culture of organized wheeling keeps trails, public and private, hidden because the higher the use the faster they are closed and/or ruined by people that trail braid, venture off trail, etc.  Your best bet is to look at the local clubs and see which is a good fit.  There are many organized clubs and one is sure to suit you.  But you won't find a club that will post trails or directions anywhere in the northeast to the public.

To reiterrate what Draz said, there is no legal public wheeling trails in CT.  Northeast Jeep does not condone illegal wheeling or posts where to illegally wheel.  With that said, I have edited your post and hope that you will not wheel those areas again unless you are sure to have permission.
