Default Indian River Route?

Is it just a bunch of narrow dirt roads with a few puddles or something that can be fun?

I went the to the Trolls Spring Opener for a number of years, and it was mostly 2-tracking that was made more fun if the weather was bad and with the people that would go.

If you drive in the river it's pretty fun. Couple deep spots, be careful.

I think we went on some of it when we went with the Trolls on a Fall Color Tour a couple years ago too.

The new "route" has not been signed yet and is a 26 mile loop that is a snowmobile trail in the winter. With that being said, it is nothing more than a flat wide sandy trail. The ATV Club Of MI will be doing the maint. on this route under the GLFWDA banner. In other words they joined GLFWDA and will be signing and maintaining it with the guidance and insurance of the assoc.

No challenges are found on this route, unless your walking, then it will be a long hike all the way around back to your car.

ive been through every trail there is up there. some that arent even listed but know the owner of the land. some descent logging trails up there. wild wood trail will lead you down the county line trail. before u cross mitchel going south on the trail there will be a black clay trail that winds up though some deep mud holes and tight wet trail. natural springs on the hill. there lots of good trails as cc mentioned
