It's in Clinton County, just north of Ingham and just west of Shiawassee & Ingham. here's the sat image. My guess is that it's pretty flat even if it is a older sand quarry. Looks like most of the dug out areas have been filled in with water.

IMO not really all that worth it, too many neighbors to say no. not to rain on parades but I think a 4x4 park in the LP isn't really all that worth it (besides the ones that are already operating like the mounds & Rose City). Why pay to go wheeling when there's tons of state land, like for me West Branch/St Helens is only 1 hour away. Drummond is only 4 hours and Canada is only 4 hours also. If you want to own a park buy some land in Canada, rules are easier to deal with up there....but hard to buy land being American.

Tillable farmland will go for $2-5k an acre depending on the soil and size. Buildable acreage will go for $5k to $25k an acre depending on the land and where it is. I would estimate a 200 acre parcel around Hillsdale would go for $750k minimum.

FYI good farmland downstate goes for $3000 per acre so I am sure unfarmable hilly wooded land would be far less than 750k, land that is not buildable or farmable is perfect for wheeling and the rural area is good because the wikll be alot less headaches from neighbors.The mounds are 2+hrs and rose is more so for OH people and Ann Arbor area hillsdale would be ideal

I had called on it, and my dad did also. We both got the same story. Dad just died, and this is three kids' estate. They don't have time to divide it up and sell it for over "$10,000 an acre", so they're selling it at a "big loss"

Don't laugh at the $10k an acre. There is property in this area selling for that. I can show you the closing statement from the parcel we bought last year for around $11,500/acre.

A few years ago before the real estate boom here in Michigan, land was usually around $500-750 /acre.

I live across the street from it and its behind our neighborhood. We used to ride dirtbikes out there all the time until they closed it up to sell. We are very good friends with the owners, they live next door. I don't think it would fly because there is a newer section of our neighborhood that is richie-rich and is connected to one of the two entrances. I think it would the coolest thing to happen, I was going to post it up earlier about it being for sale.

Along with the protected wetlands, which is like half, there are numerous spots where you can find multiple 55gal. drums dumped in holes or in the woods.

The Hillsdale to Hudson area would rock if it is do-able. I have 8 to 10 buddies right here in the Litchfield to Hillsadle area always looking to wheel. One friend of mine is building trails on his father in-laws property down by camden bluffs.
