Northeast Jeep at Jericho
« on: August 01, 2016, 07:57:15 AM »
We all stopped into Jericho Mountain State Park for a group shot before half the group ran Jericho and the other group ran easy trails.

Where is the trail in reference to that park?  I have stayed at that campground (cabin) a few times and have been all over that Mountain on my quad.

Corey, the entrance to the trail is just to the right of the red jeep. 
It is gated with a cable that the ranger unlocks after your group pays.

We were able to talk to Marc, the main guy who is responsible getting this trail done.
It was an 8 year effort for him and fellow North Woods Off Road club members.
We talked to him before and after our ride, a great and very enthusiast guy.
He and another guy are in the process of cutting easier trails so more people can
run the area they have available to cut trails for 4x4 vehicles.

Wow, didn't know the trail was that close.  When I was there last (Oct 2014) Jericho Motorsports (right down the road) had no idea about local trail that was being cut.  They could have been playing stupid, but even the locals that we met had no idea.

You pay, then wheel?  Any other requirments?

Yes, you pay the ranger and they will give you the key to unlock the cable. All the info is on the NWOR page.

A trail report

Most of the trail is rated more difficult with min recommendations of 35" tires and at least one locker.
As stated above you pay $20 to use the trail.

We met with Marc who is one of the main people from North Woods Offroad who spent about 8 years working with the NH state legislature and conservation officers to get the trail built.  He and a few other guys were cutting a new green/easy trail to allow more people to use the developing trail system.

We got on the trail at about 10:00 am with 8 jeeps, 1 4dr JK, 1 2 dr JK, and I believe the rest were TJs.
Tom lead and I tail gunned. 
We had a perfect day temperature wise to wheel.
The trail is truly more difficult as there are constant rock challenges.
These are typical New England trails, rocky, tight, and challenging.
Several spots required careful spotting and everyone was able to make it through.
We stopped often so some could try the more difficult short side trails.
We finally got off the trails at about 4:30.
Again we were able to talk to Marc and the NWOR guys about the trail system they are developing and thanked them for their hard work and dedication.
The only negative I could say about the trail system was that I wish it was closer.

The only carnage was a broken rear spider gear that was discovered in the parking lot.
Marc and his guys hung around and helped diagnose the issue.
They also stayed until we determined a plan of action and were all set.

Tom ended up staying and waiting for the AAA wrecker to show up and tow the TJ to Maine.

Anyone who took pictures please post them up here.
Alot have been already been posted on FB.

1 thing to add,

we had 2 Tj's that didnt meet the trail requirements

Todd ( TJ on 35's open open ) had no issues after picking the right line

Dennis ( TJ on 32's ) slow and steady but followed right behind me the whole day!

These guys know how to pick lines !!!!

What a fun/ tough trail. I believe we all had a great time.
