I do not live in the east coast.

But here is what I found in a quick search.

It seems New York state really does not appreciate 4X4 recreation. This is all I could find from their public park website
https://parks.ny.gov/regions/attachm...ccessGuide.pdf

Even worse, it seems New Jersey has NO legal off-road parks at all. With all that, your best bet would be National Forest Service roads, and Bureau of Land Management trails.

U.S. Forest Service locations in New York state

There are no National Forests in the State of New Jersey.


Off Highway Vehicle recreation is not available in eastern states within Bureau of Land Management areas



But after researching all that, any public access to dirt roads, trails, and OHV (off highway vehicle)/4X4 recreation areas is extremely limited in the states of New York and New Jersey. You will likely have to consider moving if you wish to find public access to dirt roads and public, legal off-road parks.

Well, you could ask the off-road groups/forums local to those states for potentially hidden/private off-pavement opportunities, and see what they would recommend for light off-roading suitable for higher-capability crossovers such as our Subaru XV Crosstrek.

If you want to describe what level of difficulty of trails you're looking for, requesting trails that a Jeep Renegade Trailhawk could do at 80-90% of its capability would seem reasonable to ask.

NJ has Pine Barrens. I always wanted to take my Jeep there but never made it. PA has Rausch Creek I did take my Jeep there and got stuck on lots of rocks while in my JKU (only had 33" tires). Probably too much for a Subaru.

Yeah Rausch creek i think would be a little much from a Crosstrek.

I'm going to try and look more into this, the weather is cooling down and i think that would also make it a better time.
