The west side of warren road at 275 is disgusting, I almost got stuck in the middle mud hole one time and ended up digging it out and spinning my tires so much before just backing out and going around. Anyways, that area is only fun for a couple times. I believe that's private land btw. But yeah, there really isn't anything else that I've been able to find around here (other than Hines Park, there's a turnaround at Farmington and Ann Arbor Trail that's pretty fun to drive through once or twice. Other than that and a few other places on Hine, there's nothin. i'm always looking for a quick fix between wheelin' trips.

All of the wheeling down here is done on property that is in the process of being developed. I had some killer trails to wheel @ 5 and sheldon (property owned by the state) 1 square mile! Dam I'm so pissed, they turned it into multi million dollar golf community. I wheeled there for over 15 years and never had a problem even from the developers, in fact they even pulled me out with a dozer once. I'll keep ya posted if I find a new place. Where ever you go just ask first.

P.S It never hurts to offer to do some clean up or something in return for the use.

From What i Am Told from the guys that are they every weekend.. the State Owns it.. and it Would be hard to develop.. so i think it will be around for awhile.. guy have been going there for 10-12yrs now.. they would block it off if it was a big concern.... when your on Warren Heading to 275 on the East side.. right before the bridge starts.. make a Quick Left next to the Guard Rail.. or there is another spot to enter lower at the tree line.. but good luck with the Ruts and Pits...

I have been there years ago but mud is not my thing. I need some hills! That property is for sale and will be developed sometime. Someone will buy those houses east of the field and build another strip mall or something. :tonka: Probably another CVS or Walgreens :tonka:

FYI: If the state owns it and it's not a road or clearly posted as open then it is CLOSED and you are breaking the law.

its all illegal. have heard plenty of rumors of how its legal and so on. I dont like to go back there but occasionally do to pull out a dumb fucking friend.

If you wanna get access to it look up the owner and give them a call and ask. worst thing they can say is no.

there is one muddy part of hines drive just west of newburgh lake before haggerty. it is a road, just a little muddy once and a while. but dont go back there its my god damn fishing hole
