Default croton area trails

Hey guys first time poster here. I was just wondering if anyone lived around the Howard city Croton area? or even Newaygo? Me and my buddy's always go wheelin in a place called the prairie right off m-82 and we are looking for some more spots. Also anyone know of a link to some maps that will show trails in my area? or even seasonal roads.

Thanks alot.

Someone tore the piss out of 92nd last time I was out there and it was barely possible in my impreza. I had to drag my way through it.
And that's an actual road......

I was out in the area you described a month ago scouting for hunting and I noticed the racetrack out in the big field area behind the burial area.

if you haven't noticed yet, you've been wheeling on illegal wheeling property.

Please obey rules and stick to seasonal roads. there are a bunch between muskegon river and lakeview. I have been down quite a few in the old 05 legacy i sold a while back.

People here don't take kindly to illegal wheelers, they ruin the sport for others.

If its not a numbered seasonal road I won't drive on it. All legal roads there are numbered since its national forest.

How about you go tear up your neighbor's yard because he drove back there with his truck once.

well we don't tear it up anyway. and anywhere that is says keep out we KEEP OUT. so i dont really see what we are doing wrong anyway. and a seasonal road goes right through the middle of it from thornapple to pear so we thought we where ok.
