Default Hi from South Africa!

Hi to all!

Thank you for a nice forum!

I am from South Africa and spend time in Detroit from time to time.

I am a big off road enthusiast and I would like to get involved in events and trail rides close to Detroit.

I've had various Toyota's, Jeeps and Land Rovers (trail drive orientated) at home and currently drive a VW Amarok (overland orientated) but unfortunately don't have an off road vehicle here in the US.

Please let me know if there is any events within say 150 miles from Detroit - I would love to join in - I have transport to get to the trail and I am a good road builder :)

Welcome to the forum. There is one private offroad park about 50 miles from Detroit (Bundy Hill) and a county owned park about the same distance. (Mounds) Everything else is at least 150 miles north. Michigan public land does not allow trail riding that creates erosive conditions. Therefore it must be within an ORV area or on private land. You may want to check out Silver Lake Sand Dunes which is about 5 hours west of Detroit on Lake Michigan. They have rental vehicles that will allow you to get out onto the dunes.

There aren't any trail rides that come to mind but you might be able to time it right to check out the RBOR races that are held monthly throughout Michigan.
