Montcalm/Kent/Ionia Wheeling?

Few local guys getting cabin fever. Looking for local play place. Anyone know of anywhere besides parks? Those are fun and all, but were looking for somewhere we can go and not worry if they're open, paying $25 to wheel for 2-3 hours etc.

Check out the DNR website for trails open to Jeeps:

http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,4570,7...8330--,00.html

There are some seasonal roads in the state/national forrests that can be fun with snow.

Welcome to Michigan. Parks or private property. All else isn't much "fun".

There's a local guy in Ionia, his name is Doug. He has some private property he wheels. Maybe you could find him...

Yeah, I've got that bookmarked on my computer. But all that is located 75+ miles away. Plus, being ORV Routes, they're pretty tame. I'd bet a Subaru could get down most of those. I'm calling out to any local guys who know of local spots inside the Lowell, to Lakeview, and Cedar Springs to Ionia area. Seeing if there is any unknown spots out there. Something that locals may know about, but those outside that immediate area don't. Stuff like that. Something we can go wheel and be back from within an hour or two.

Good luck. As Al said, Parks or private property. You won't find much of anything else.
