Default Pics!!

Got out to the park to check it out today! Lots of potential just starting out so needs people to just go and use it. They made it more than clear any one is welcome to make new trails. It reminds me a lot of twisted trails.Just smaller and not as developed. I will be going again soon that's for sure. Oh and the owners are real nice people. They said if it does not take off this summer they don't know if they can keep it open because of the price of insurance. So lets keep this place going!!



Parking and camping
















big mud pit 300'x100'




small mud pit

The pics do not do the the hill climbs any justice. They are a lot steeper than they look in pictures. The only thing they are missing is some rocks. But they said when they start bringing in some money they have plans to build some rock obstacles

Place is only 20 miles from the Sand Bar at Torch Lake. The GL4x4 wheelers and boaters should do a combo weekend. Day at the lake, day wheeling.

we're going to go this weekend. I like the boat, and wheel idea. We have a place just outside of Manci so we're close to both.
