There is a 2 track with steel on both sides and wood in between. It was too bumpy for me and I kept getting blinded by 1 high beam. Check it out!

Even if there was a "two track" in down river, its probably not the best idea to go down it anyway. i.e. bums, krakheads, cops, dead people...

i see alot of totally stock trucks have fun at the mounds. just gotta watch the water holes, some are 5ft deep or more. you can be at the mounds in 1.5 to 1.75 hours. anything south of flint is illegal unless its private. you could try bundy hill also. bout the same distance for ya.
good luck!

local trails

You have to find someone with some decent private land. I am looking for some place to get a quick occasional ride in myself.

just got a stock 1997 land rover disco that im going to build up. Next upgrade will be the suspension. Going on what i read, I can get 2" from shocks and springs before i have to start messing with changing drive shafts.

I've ran a bunch of the fire trails in the Indian River area on ATVs for the longest time but no 4WD trucks so im trying to get my feet wet without getting in too deep.

Im also in the Allen Park/Romulus area so let me know any pointers/locations.

Well if you were in the Indian River area you should go to the Black Lake Scramble Area, nothing too bad, but like said before, Mounds is your best bet. Plenty of stockers out there

42.215307,-83.296775 or put this in google and zoom in and hit the terrain tab. entrances to these locations are hard to find the one in taylor is good and challenging the one in monroe is ok at best.
and finally the bigest best kept secret is arcona hill this is a very hard area and can be quite dangerous 42.103489,-83.460061
ps if you get stuck and you need help dont call a tow truck it is private property and they will be required to call the police.

If anyone else has good spots post em lets see all of down rivers dirty little secrets.

Scuba

REALLY!!!!!!!!!! I hope your not that dumb.
