Pine Barrens explorers? NJ rider looking for advice or ride buddies

I live in Northern NJ and just got my adv bike a few months ago. I'm itching to get it dirty and I think the Pine Barrens might be the best place for me to go.

Wondering if there are any particular routes that are either must sees or to be avoided. I also don't have a GPS (aside from my phone) and I'm not sure if that's problematic, or if I can just roll around in there and not worry too much about whether or not I'll find my way out when I want to leave.

Any advice is welcome. If anyone's heading there sometime soon and wants to give a tour that'd be great too!

Thanks,

Aaron

Several reasons for that but mainly because of the drought last summer.
Same reason the PB300 was cancelled. Keep an eye open in the spring for folks posting rides.

I usually just ride alone and not depend on anyone to ride with.

Looking for NJ Routes?

Try this on for size, though you will need a GPS.

I would pick up a GPS....very easy to get turned around out there. You can buy a used Garmin C60sx for reasonable $$ here in the flea market. I like to just set mine on tracking and ride till I've had enough, then just follow the tracks home if I don't know exactly where I am. Also would suggest starting near the Atsion station.

It's hunting season

Right now it's hunting season. As I recall, Sunday Hunting is not permitted in New Jersey. If that's true, limit your riding to Sundays only, and stay out of the woods the rest of the week until hunting season is over.
You won't make friends if you bust in on a hunter who's got a shot lined up and you and your bike spook his deer. And we ought to be friends with the hunting guys, because they can help us keep the politicians and greenies from closing the woods to off road riders for good.

Damaged forest

Anybody know how much damage was done to the Pine Barrens forests by hurricane Sandy?

I was at the Hammer Run (after Sandy), and it was drier than usual in the woods... really odd. I didn't notice any storm damage at all (again, odd).

I was out four wheeling a week ago in Brenden Byrne and saw nothing that look like a hurricane came through there.

PB and Sandy

I was riding in Lebanon and Greenwood/Warren Grove - No sign that Sandy even came through. I stopped and talked to a Ranger and he confirmed that there was minimal/no damage from Sandy
