Allegan state forest is like 60,000 acres with two-tracks running all around. Yankee Springs is about 13,000 with trails as well.

Theres a nice muddy trail over in South Haven. Can't remem the name but they had a small competition out there erailer this year. I'll try and get a name this weekend when i head down there.

There is a few county roads in bangahore/arlington township that i mowed, that had no houses, were almost not even 2 tracks. THey were really only fun in the tractor if it rained.

where's yankee springs, haven't heard that one mentioned?

edit i googled...yankee springs

I dont know of any trials around south haven/bangor, but then again i could be wrong. The allegen forest has alot, but I have never been up there. I know there is a mud run just north of south haven just about every weekend.

Allegan would be the best bet..... most of what use to be fun at yankee springs (of course this was 10+ years ago) is all closed now.

Some of the area in Allegan can get pretty wicked

if your in GR though your best bet would be the whitehall/manistee forest area

Probably closed because it was illegal and it sucked.
