NJ Riders Crystal lake(Dover or Manchester)???

Hey has anyone heard or rode this place? Some guy was telling me that he rode there and it was great, but I didn't understand him when he was trying to tell me directions. He said its called crystal lake in Dover or Manchester he wasn't sure what town.

That is where he is talking about Sarco, manchester, crystal lake, all the same place

I took this shot a few years ago flying overhead doing some scoping out there and jackson for better hiding spots to park so the cops would not catch us.



It is off of RT37, the place is approx 4000 acres of great riding, but if you do not have a parking hookup, get ready to write a big check to the township of Manchester if you get caught or they find your truck. It also is bumped up next to a national forest with miles and miles of fire roads.

If you have a gps or you are an aviator,This point is at Latitude 39.991726, Longitude -74.313335, UTM Zone 18, Easting 558621, Northing 4427065 , Elevation 26 meters (86 feet ±50 feet)

I have a couple more; give me a few days to find them. I bought a new comp so they are archived in either imagestation or on CD. Took about 10 pics that day and posted them on BT, but we changed a couple forum hosts since then. It was like 3 years ago.

No just about 2 miles south of that specific area. Post or email your exact coordinates and I shall show you to the Promised Land. Be aware I will not be responsible for any encounters with the popo !

Shit who would not get paid to off road with a townships vehicle!



Privately owned, it is owned by heritage mine, used to be a strip mine of some sorts, which is why they have those 3 man made lakes back there. Back a long time ago I believe they dumped toxic waste by the buildings. Sinner knows a heck of a lot about who owns what and wherever so he may chime in on this. I know that they give cops full reign to go on the property and fine off roaders.

Sarco is cool, but Claytons in Jackson is better

the property, or at least most of it is owned by K Hovnainin builders, his plan was to originally build a 5000 unit senior complex, but that fell through. over by the old factory is a haz-mat site, it's radioactive there, stay clear i don't know how bad exactly but radiation is bad period! now back to k hov i had a long talk with him, used to do excavation for him, he has no desire to open it as a park, and basically thinks were all trash that ride, clrd2lnd is correct the cops have free reign in there so rider beware......so with all that said, when ya gettin back here jim?? silver lake this summer?? drop me a line.

I am getting ready to move to San Diego in 3 months. Just got done putting my home up on the rental market and will be packing out April. Silver lake this summer?
Try Glamis bro. Will be all settled in and have the place scoped out by then and you cats can nut up and get your quads shipped out there for a week romp in late sept or early Oct. Summer is waay too hot for day riding out there. Time to visit the angry white boys version of "Mecca"
