Here are the best places for off-roading around the Exton, PA, area:
1. Pine Barrens, NJ (54 miles)
The Pine Barrens have become one of the best places to off-road east of Exton. Even though you’ll have to cross state lines, the Pine Barrens aren’t too far away. These trails traverse thousands of acres of forestry and are optimal for 4WD vehicles, ATVs, or dirt bikes. Wharton State Forest is especially popular and offers 500 acres of trails with options for beginners and advanced off-roaders. The Pine Barrens also offer camping sites for weekend-long off-roading trips. Because of the vast area of the trails, make sure you stay on the courses so you don’t get lost.
2. Rausch Creek (65 miles)
The Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in Pine Grove, PA, consists of over 30 miles of trails for almost every type of off-road vehicle.
