Is it illegal to take your vehicle off road in North Carolina?

Is it illegal to take a truck off road in North Carolina? My husband got two tickets because he was on a trail off of a road with his vehicle. The ranger said that he was not allowed to be there and wrote him one ticket for destruction of U.S. property and another for going off of an established road. There were no marked signs… ANYWHERE… and I can’t find anything about it being illegal while looking online.

    The laws are the same for all states and the driver must look for the posted Off-Road Trail Signs which are the same here in Texas…

    These signs are posted for all drivers to see but you cannot just drive off any road and go 4-wheeling because you will be fined as your husband did its always best to search out 4-wheel trails in your area before doing this…….

    Your use of the words "ranger" and "U.S. property" lead me to believe he was in a Park or National Forest. They do have different rules than the States and you won’t find them in State laws.
