Default Gladwin State Land

I have often gone out to Gladwin state land with my dual sport to ride ORV trails. My bike is licensed, so I can go where ever any other licensed vehicle is allowed to go. There are some "main" seasonal roads out there like Center Fireline Trail, Mosquito Alley Truck Trail, etc. I often see two tracks branching off from those roads. I believe these to be the dotted gray lines on the map. Am I correct?

The map says to stay on marked trails only, but since these are "poor dirt roads" are they ok to take?

I understand there are single track trails out there that are unmarked and "closed", but what about these two tracks. I assume they are probably used by hunters, campers, etc. but I just want to know what is a legitimate place to ride and not.

Also, I was out there this weekend and Ridge Road had a gate across it with a stop sign from two points, so I wasn't able to access the ORV Route. Does anybody know what's going on out there?

Ridge road has always had the gate there at the 90 degree left hand turn in the road, if this is the location to which you are referring. Just after a small cedar swamp on the right? And approx .75 miles east of Iron Bridge rd? If you continue by making the left hand turn and venturing to Center Fireline you can access the route from there.

Also, any two track that is capable of traversing in a two wheel drive conventional automobile that is SOS licensed is open to travel unless otherwise noted. You will find most in that area however to be nothing more than a short trip into a camping location used by hunters.
