    where you live? what type of terrain you wanting to find? it really depends on the area. I am in the Phoenix area and sometimes have to drive an hour or more to get a good trail ride in :-(

    Search for public land that you're allowed to operate a vehicle on.

    Join a truck club
    Ask at the local 4x4 shops
    Ask a guy with a muddy truck
    Make a friend with a farm
    Get on a website like Pirate 4x4
    Dirtopia.com is a good wiki style reference, more focused on the western states though.

    From what I've seen in MD, VA, PA, NJ a very tiny portion is state land that you can use, another small portion is permissable land in which you need specific permission from the landowner to ride his property, and the vast majority of the land is state owned no-mans land for infrastructure (pipelines, power lines, unbuildable land, etc.

    All the land I ride has been found via word of mouth. It's difficult sometimes.
