    Anyone know of any private land in northern Nj that allows riders to use their land/trails?
    I’ve heard of a few guys that pay like $100 for the year and have access to land up here whenever they want.

    Would be nice not to have to go 2 hours south everytime I want to mess around in the dirt

    I’m in Montclair. Hit me with any info
    Thanks

    Hi Ryon,
    Hello from Millburn! I grew up in Montclair.
    I just joined and am new to both the forum and the sport.
    I am a hunter, and we share a common problem with finding land. The approach the hunting community has taken is to form clubs, where 15-20 members each pay dues, and the club uses the money to lease land from local farmers and other land owners. I'll bet a similar model would work for dirt biking.
    Being new to the sport, I don't have a network of other riders, but if you know others, we could join forces and attempt this approach.

    Good fly fishing in the Ramapo river too, if you're into that. I'll definitely plan a "dual sport" trip up there this spring.

    How far are you guys from the pine barrens? Is that what you mean when you have to ride two hours to get off road? I'm down near dc. Planning a trip to Pennsylvania soon. That's about the next best place other than going into Virginia.
