Tin Cup 18 miles, Lower and Upper Manistee about 35+ miles. The Tin Cup is doable in 2WD for most of it. Bring bug spray.

just got back from camping 4 days at Sleeping Bear Dunes. Found some fun "seasonal roads" in the area that are pretty rough (logging, hunting access, etc.). A little north of Manistee though. I'd never been further north in Michigan than Saugatuck; it's beautiful up there. I definitely saw a few seasonal roads down closer to Manistee off of 31 during my drive back home today.

I think the seasonal roads are Michigans hidden treasure. I love to see where they head off to.

Seasonal roads are fun, there are tons of them here. There are also certain trails in the Manistee national forest that are legal for SOS registered vehicles with orv permit, just need to find out which ones. I have done a lot of wheeling in the" Norconk swamp" just north of Bear Lake but want to find some new territory.

I took my parents camping up there and pulled off onto as many as I could find. The first one we took, my mom was a little upset, but then we found one that had some good climbs and a few rough wash out sections that took us to a great rolling pasture clearing and after that she decided she liked going off the beaten path, Jeep style, a little more.

Next time try the Tin Cup trail between Reed City and Baldwin. 3-4 hours of trail that are fairly easy.Over 18 miles of trail.
