I am trying to talk my brother into showing me some trails near Whitehall. He lives in Montague, I grew up there and used to know a ton of 2 tracks and snowmobile trails.
I doubt the ones I remember even exist anymore. It will be a couple of weeks before he can do this. But once we do, maybe we can get a gang together.

We were in Baldwin in Mid March with Rubiclone. Those are nice trails. This weekend we were thinking of staying closer to home. Just got back exploring up around Sweeter Rd for a couple of hours. We are thinking of heading up there again tomorrow unless someone else knows the trails East of Whitehall.

We're game, just don't know where we want to go.

Take M-20 west out of White Cloud. There are a couple different "seasonal roads' that head north off of M-20. You can wander north going from seasonal road to 2 tracks to motorcycle trails as long as you want to ride. It took us about 3 hours to drive from White Cloud to Brohman just wandering nice 2 tracks. We found hills, mud and sand.
Just a nice Saturday ride.

That sounds like fun too. The problem is I am on pager duty this weekend and next. I have to stay where I have signal at least on my cell. My laptop has to come with me where ever I go too...
I think there are areas up there where there is no signal...
As soon as I get rid of the "brick" we can get up there and check those out.
Thanks for the info!

I did not like tin cup at all just a bunch of whoops, it took about 1 hr to do the loop. And there were a ton of quads running the day i was there.

Yeah....

I did Tin Cup two years ago without knowing any better. The "legal" loop was like a washboard and I could've taken a station wagon through there. TONS of bikes and quads though.

I think there was a few spots that you could go exploring off the loop, but I didn't feel like getting nailed that day
