Yeah, from the LP (downriver) heading up for a month ....just trying to figure out how to get my a jeep there. Can't afford driving both vehicles up.
And can't bring just the Jeep.
Trying to find a car hauler or someone to carpool up with.

The closest place is Bundy Hill. Beyond that, you'll have to drive 3+ hours north to hit any trails. The DNR website shows which trails are open to Jeeps (very few), but I find the seasonal roads near any of the state/national forrests more interesting anyhow.



Here are some ORV areas, but some are pretty far from Detroit:
The Mounds
Bundy Hill
Oakville Mud Bogg near Milan (just heard of this place)
St Helens ORV Area
Silver Lake
Rocks and Valleys
Drummond Island
Twisted Trails

Your Jeep will handle any of those locations.

I lived in the Roscommon/ Saint helen area for quite awhile. All the trails that way are accessible by ANY 4x4 vehicle (Jeeps, Chevy's, Ford's, Quads, Dirtbikes, etc, etc) as long as you have an ORV sticker, the Sticker is about 12 $ I believe at any of the gas stations in town, They just built a new Rock climbing area out by First crossing. (Your bound to end up over there, even if you start in the next town over). They have trails that go for MILES, I'm originally from the metro Detroit area so I know Michigan pretty well. They have a Saint helen, Roscommon ORV trail head around Dundee, MI somewhere I believe, towards the Ohio border, Which is 3+ hours away from Saint Helen.

If your headed past exit 222. Stop in Saint Helen. Your bound to find something there you like.

You really need to post the GPS coordinates of this Dundee trail or stop saying it exists. There are seriously no trails in south east Michigan.

Scram, this is the website you want to use to find ORV trails. You'll have to open each map to see whether it is open to Jeeps.

http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,1607,7...8330--,00.html

But honestly, I have more fun on seasonal roads or in the ORV areas listed above than on any Michigan ORV trails.

I hate to keep beating you up on this subject, but you are incorrect - the St Helen/Roscommon area has some great ORV routes, ORV trails and MCCCT trails, but there are very specific restrictions on some of those trails:

MCCCT is single track for motorcycles only
ORV trails can be used by any ORV less than 50" wide (ATV/MX)
OUR Routes are open to all users with a valid ORV permit

And as bobjp pointed out, there is nothing in the ORV system that is even close to Dundee or the OH border.
