One more member to add to the pile from the Springfield area! My rigs currently under the knife for frame repairs but once she’s back up the plan is to put some time in to find trails in New England and compile a list so we all know what we’re working with.

Well there is the Puppy Dog trail and the Hampster Ride. I think a couple of others. I started the Hampster out of Hollis NH. Some nice little farms and shops around there.

Whole theres a lot of old paved road on the southern Hampster, some of that route is dirt and I imagine will be slick and muddy through Spring.

Im new to the forum but i have been following the overland bound youtube page for years. its awesome to see people from the north east coast here. I am also from Massachusetts about 20 minutes from Springfield Massachusetts. I just bought a 2019 subaru crosstrek premium 6 speed about a month ago. right before this whole quarantine happened.
We should get together and chat about places we know of I’m in Springfield

I think the 3 best places would be Maine with a good number of very remote trails and camping, NH and VT with their dispersed camping and class 4/6 roads.
Wife and I did a section last year of Mass and CT where we didn’t see pavement for most of the day, there is also the Trans Mass Trail.
I am working on exploring NY, but I’m aware NEBDR sections 1 and 2 have some dirt or unmaintained roads.
NJ has the pine barrens and the TNJT (although much of that north of Jackson is paved). Appalachian Byway in NJ is 100% paved (just did it this weekend)

I think the majority of what these states have to offer can be done in a Subaru

I’m in NH and would love to do a meet up when the weather gets better. I only have a Highlander so I can’t do technical trails but I’m good on dirt roads and forest roads. I have camping gear so I’m ready to go.

Hi! My husband and I (and our 4 month old puppy) are starting to get all our gear together to start overlanding this year! We're also from Springfield area and I was curious about all the good spots in the new england area to start and found myself here in this thread. We're wicked excited to get out there and maybe meet some other overlanders :)

Out of curiosity, how many among us feel that it is sometimes difficult to get a cohesive group together for a ride, but we may be able to set up a "wrench-fest" thread. You know, whoever has a garage, we get together and turn some wrenches with whoever of us shows up and needs a hand with something?
