Default Where to Ride around Genesee county ?

Went riding at the mounds for probably the last time today. Too hard to get any good ride the trucks all over, it was more entertaining to sit in the parking lot and watch the morons pull out and park their trailers in the middle and watch people try to get around them..

i know there's a gravel pit in Vassar that's "legit" to ride at..

and i've heard of Baja But i believe that's more of a race track..

where else can we ride (ATV's) legally around here ??

baja is just a motocross track. i dont know of any place around genesee but theres lots of place within 2 hrs of you. Like Mio/Mckinley area and bullgap is always a fun time. st. helen has a lot of trails too. Ostc is cool for riding if you dont mind Dino the dueche bag! But you have access to a lot of state trails from there. How did that motor work from my buddy?

gladwin isn't all that great. there's only 20 miles of trails, a weak scramble area, and it's wooped out as a mother fuc**r

gladwin is hell!!! expecially on a bike, not a quad. those are quad trails and i snapped my thumb and bruised 5 ribs tryin to tame those trails on my bike. they're not too bad though not many people depending on the day of the week. if ya need to ride they'll suffice. btw the whoops aren't bad, they're fun as long as you aren't fat old or lazy.....in other words stand on your pegs. pegs don't equal foot rest.
