Best Places to Offroad in Michigan

I'm looking for some great places to offroad in Michigan. I live close to Detroit and have been to Bundy Hill (like it!) and the Mounds ORV area (don't like it as much as Bundy Hill).

What other places are good that are close to Detroit / Ann Arbor (there has to be a hidden little gem somewhere)?

Any spots to go up north that are worth the trip?

Thanks,

CJ

Check this site out: http://schwarttzy.com/trails-and-parks

Has a marker for every trail in Michigan, including the ORV trails that are state owned. There is Twisted Trails north of Cadillac, which is a newer place, by newer I mean the last five years. Anyway, take a look at the site, check out the trails, and plan your trip accordingly. Hope that helps.

Claire, MI. Great park run by a really good staff. Lots of trails to challenge you no matter what your rig is.

West Branch and St Helen have some decent trails along with a new rock course.

Good info! I will check out the sites. It would be great to have a ORV area closer to Detroit, an after work type thing.

Some people are working on opening a new park just north of Oakland Co. but it is in the planning stages at this time.

Rocks and Valleys is by far the best all around wheeling for whatever level of rig you have

But, you'll have to check it out yourself and form your own opinion.

Well all the parks have their own theme. Rocks and Valleys gives back a great feel for wooded wheeling with plenty to play on for all .rock crawls to off camber and mudd. I am there most every weekend. Bundy has a great open pit wheeling area with some cool trails cut into the woods section they have. Twisted trails have what their names says and a nice section of extreme large features. The mounds is the mudd guys dreams . St. Hellens is a nice break from boring state land trail rides, With a developing rock area, Best to plan a trip to all to make a fav spot.
