welcome aboard and howdy.

I guess we'll start out by saying theres little to no legal trail in the part of the state...However there are many areas where the roads are kinda left to there own accord. if you head west out of your area theres many a back road to the south of Burkhart & 96. you can drive for miles on the backroads out that way, you may even find some nice hills when you look a bit. down further south theres Waterloo rec area and Pickney rec which are loaded with forest & county roads that are easy access and fun to drive.

The mounds is to he north a bit, its best found on Mt. Morris rd about 8 miles east of the I 75 at the Mt. Morris exit. its 240 driveable acres of trail & mud. beside that you have to go way up north to gladwin and sterling truck trail.

Yup, as stated by chevotass, nothing legal around here besides the mud bogs in the surrounding areas.

don't know if you belong to a 4x4 club or not, but half the members of Southern Michigan Rockcrawlers live in that area. a couple of them have their own courses on their property.
