Post Wexford Mesick/Caberfae

what about the wexford area ?

last year we did the excessivly yawnzilla tin cup / lake county trail or atleast a fair portion, but this year we want to do atleast Three seperate camp / wheel trips

I guess u could say were staging / loading out of evart in osceola county and looking to camp / wheel Wexford

ive noticed over time that the state orv routes are fairly lame, and we want some adventure, good camping area BUT not a camp ground so we were tossing around the idea of wheelin caberfae/mesick area http://www.liaa.info/wexford/standard_maps.asp (u got to click on the link after u click on this one dont worry u'll understand soon) this is about the stupidest map i think ive ever ran across shockin its from cadillac tourist central... = /

however its mostly snowmobile trails? and im not familar with rules regarding snowobile trails and summer / jeep use but it looks to me like many of these trails in wexford are either motorcycle or snowmobile only... = /

this is a better maphttp://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,1607,7...8330--,00.html & http://www.midnr.com/FLW/LandsOpen-H...ord_COUNTY.pdf

but we dont wanna get in trouble w the local DNR... So what is your guys experience in this area ? How are the local non advertised trails around here? ideal set for us would be tricky terrain thats difficult but not part taxing and a camp spot near a water location mostly for morning and evening fishing / bathing dont wanna stink up the jeep ya know....

Get the Motor vehicle use map for the Manistee national forest. While there are still some nice areas most are either being closed or graded and graveled. The US forest service will send you the map free of charge.

For the Cadillac area contact info

Another option would be the UP or Drummond Island. I'm planning a drummond trip this summer. There was some good 2 tracking up there before they established the full size ORV route so I'm interesting to see what they have now.

Wheeling in the lower peninsula is pretty tough unless your happy with graded dirt roads.

Your allowed to backcountry camp on a lot of state forest land. There are also lots of state forest rustic campgrounds. Some are virtually unused.
