Offroad trails northeast NJ
 
This is a bit of a stretch....but here goes.

I live in Jersey City, NJ. I heard of some trails that people take their bikes and atv's to in the meadowlands, illegally but cops apparently don't care on the weekends.

Is anybody on here from my area that knows about this? I know jersey city is not much of an adv rider setting :cry but i'm a city guy that also loves offroad riding.

That was a few moons ago. In this area, your best choice would be to sign up for any of the South Jersey enduro, dual purpose 100 mile+ club rides, or hare scramble events and ride without any headaches.

A legal riding area, if you dont mind the drive, is Lost Trails in PA. You do not neet a plated dirt bike to ride there. It is extremely rocky, has a few very tight single track loops, and a few water crossing. But if you like to ride the entire day and explore, it is a great place IMO.

OP, is your bike plated?

You aren't going to find much in the Meadowlands anymore. Instead you can go watch a football game or stare at a giant colorful money pit that is the American Dream...

If your bike is played you can search on here for TNJT and get some GPS tracks for that route.

People use to ride in the Kearny swamps down off Schuyler ave back in the day. Not sure about now.

The Kearny swamps and garbage dump.
Yea, the problem was the mud was weird. Sorta glowed at night and would not wash off with water.
Also, trash tended to get into air boxes. And if you scratched yourself, the wound often resulted in death.
So they closed it.
:lol3
As a kid I remember driving by the Kearny land fill almost everyday going through Harrison before 280 went all the way through. Man, where did the years go.
And I cant believe I'm saying "man, where did the years go"

When I lived in West New York 70's-80's, kids would enter the Meadowlands from Rt 1 & 9 along the railroad tracks. Wouldn't take anything big in there, don't know if tide would be a factor.
