too old, too young, to the trials

I saw mick andrews climb a tree and roll back down...maybe 1973. I think he had a tweed sport coat, a pea cap and equestrian boots....and a pipe in his mouth.
Dignified riding.
I'm in metro NYC area and can find NOTHING closer than southern PA or MA that even hints of Trials. Can anyone offer any suggestions how i'd get started....I mean beyond buying a used dual and, sprockets, tires, skid plate. I have 47 years on street so , y'know, basically, I can ride.
thank you

Howdy! To Trials, you say?? Well...the Trials community is very small and, just kidding. Small yes, secretive, no way. Very welcoming and helpful I've found.

Here's a general link that has lots of good information and links to regional clubs, etc:


There's a Trials section just down the page a up there and someone will likely jump in w/ advice. In fact, this whole thread should be there...mod?
