unpaved roads in central/north jersey

I am new to dirt riding and know about the pine barrons but would like to venture off pavement on shorter rides during the week. Is there a map of roads that have yet to be paved in NJ or just across the border in PA? Anywhere new hope and north.

Common sense to stop and kill the motor on a public road whenever you see a horse?

Yup, on those roads there anyway. If and when you ride them, I'm sure you'll see what I mean. Shutting down may not be necessary but stopping is.Common sense. Not that I have any love or allegiance to the horse crowd. I don't.

If I am on a gravel/dirt road, I stop and shut off the engine just for common courtesy. A spooked horse is no joke.

We have "Horse Enduros" here in the pines.

MOST horse folks appreciate the courtesy.

As with any diverse group, some are total a$$holes. YMMV

I ride a DR650 and I used to have a louder aftermarket pipe on it. I was riding past a young girl on a horse near Lake Nockamixon and decided I would slow down as not to spook it. Well, the bike pulled a lean off throttle backfire as I rolled past and the horse reared up nearly throwing the girl. After making sure she was ok, I went right home and put the stock pipe back on. I don't want anyone getting hurt due to my extra 2-3 hp. Also, we're losing ground here in Upper Bucks because of loud pipes and carelessness. Respect and some compromise will go a long way.

Bring the youngins to the Hammer Run with their costumes.

They'll get more sweets from a bunch of crusty riders than what they'd get from the mean old neighbors.

Riding in Piney Land

andmoon,

I just returned to riding after a five year rest.
I'm interested in riding dirt roads in the Pine Barrons.
My 96 DR650 is ready to go!

About the road maps, go old school and buy some topographic maps of the area. I purchased Delorme topo of New Jersey.
