Default Mio Trails any fun?

Heding up there this weekend for a canoe/camping trip and just wondering how the full-size trails are. Are they fun or have scrable areas at all or just simple 2 track, Im thinkin bout trailering the jeep up but dont want to go through the hassle if its just gonna be sandy roads...

I don't think there are ANY scramble areas and the routes we cross (on motorcycles) don't look especially interesting. It is very pretty out there, but not sure if it is what you are looking for.

Bull Gap is open to full size vehicles, thanks GLFWDA!

You will need an ORV sticker to use the hill however.

If you are just heading for the ORV routes, the DNR maps are pretty good - they have all been recently updated based on GPS data from DNR field staff.

The marked ORV route in Mio is mostly dual-purpose snowmobile trails (sandy, wide and flat), not much entertainment value.

could be fun if you wanted to go real fast in something like a raptor or even a fast dune buggy.
