Default New, from Colorado

Hi all. Looking for wheeling this weekend/week. We live in Colorado, but are out here visiting family for the week, up near Higgins Lake. I'm originally from SE MI. We are traveling in hubby's '11 JKU, and my '03 TJ is at home in the driveway (sniff). Our son (18) has a Comanche. We kind of have a Jeep thing goin on...anyway, off to read the forum and see of there's any runs planned, and try to figure out what wheeling's like here, and where to go.

Welcome to the site, if you are used to wheeling in the mountains in Colorado, Michigan may be a let down as far as challenge goes but we have much more water and lakes to see.

However there are plenty of trails in Michigan. I would suggest picking up a trail map and going from there. There is a lot of back roads also in that area.
I have a cabin just north of Higgins Lake and just got home from a Colorado vacation!
Enjoy your visit!!

Holy cow, thank you, will have to check out St. Helen. I just Googled. And the Grayling thread is what made me sign up, since we're staying at Higgins. No disappointment - my husband's from Alabama, so we kind of have similarly-terrained upbringings, and love the non-rock, non-cliff kind of adventuring, too. Thanks so much for the replies, and the advice!!

Welcome! Yeah the ranges out in grayling/waters are nice to wheel. Just have to pay attention to signage. The st. Helen area is probley a better start since there is maps and its marked better.
