Default I'm headed to the UP this weekend. Couple questions.

I'm leaving Thursday for the upper peninsula with my wife a some friends. We will be taking my wrangler unlimited. I know Thursday night we will be camping at tahquamenon state park- check out the falls, the brewery and maybe get in some fishing.

Friday afternoon we are going to make our way towards Marquette. I have two requirements for this short journey. First I am stopping at the two hearted river to get a little fishing in and secondly I would like to do some laid back wheeling. I just downsized to 295/70/17 toyo open country and will be the only vehicle on our trip so I don't want to get into too much mud or rocks up there. Any suggestions on a decent trail? I remember when I was younger we took coast gaurd line trail that followed Lake Superior but I can't seem to find much info about it now.

Any thoughts or suggestions I'd be glad to hear them.

I can't suggest trails. But get a white fish dinner in Paradise. It's a little blue building - shack . You should pass it on the way to the falls.

Not a wheeling adventure, but make your drive up to the top of Marquette mountain. It's steep but easy. The entrance is just past the prison right before the big hill.. same side of the road as the prison.. awesome views

There were some mild, but fun trails near rainbow lodge. we used to run on them quite a bit. Thats in the pine stump junction area, the area is pretty empty, and scenic. Grand Marais has a cool little brewery, with good steaks and burgers.
Pictured rocks is right there too. Do the boat tour!
Have fun!
