Default Sterling Area

Planning to try and find some trails Friday afternoon (June 27th) for a little while. Does anyone know of any trails close to Sterling? We are going up kayaking, but we are going to be there a while before everyone else arrives.
Thanks for any input!

There are all kinds of seasonal roads and truck trails right off sterling road. Just west of I75. There are some really great area to explore out there.

x2, the Sterling Truck Trail is a neat place to play. I'm not sure how to describe how to get there, I only know it by area, but I think it's on a Michigan atlas.

Thanks for the input. I have been on them before, but wasn't sure if there were any on the east side of I75.

If your board, we will be out messing around on them Friday afternoon.

Thanks again
Ryan

Default Trails

I looked at Sterling and I-75 and found the following Trails (mostly west of I-75):
  • Lame Duck Truck Trail
    Sterling Truck Trail
    Jack Pine Trail
    Center Fireline Trail
    Mosquito Alley Truck Trail

Are these worth exploring?

Mosquito alley is a good trail to hit. Center fireline can have some pretty bad area that can require a VERY mud capable rig. A lot of rednecks with 44's up that way (friends of mine)
