Wheeling in NWI

Hey, I just moved to Cedar Lake, IN from Grand Rapids, MI. Anyone know of any place close by (be it parks, two-tracks, etc.) besides the cliffs and the badlands? I need a place to test out my new lift and tires.

I'm from Highland but my Dad has 17acres out in Roselawn (by Demotte). It's got nice sand dunes and hills and trails. Once I get lifted and tires I'd be down to take a few peeps out that way.
