Snow Wheeling in the central UP

Hello all. I'm in the process of building my first off road Jeep. So I want to get out and use it before spring. Does any know of any trails / roads that aren't set aside for snowmobiles?

This is the website you want:

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

Clicking on the dots will bring up a trail map that states whether it's open to Jeeps. Other than that, you can find seasonal roads in the national or state forests. I have done many of the of the seasonal roads in Hiawatha. They're tame so snow makes them more interesting. I recommend going to the Keweenaw where there are more hills and scenery.

Try north of the Newberry area. There are many roads and routes that are not plowed over the winter which makes for some good challenging driving. Plenty of lake effect snow when the lake effect snow machine kicks in. Not much snow this year.

There are numerous logging roads in Marquette, Baraga, Dickinson and my fav is Iron Co. Dont leave home unprepared!! No cell recept under the canopies. Check out Alger county south of Munising absolutley beautiful in the fall with the Hardwoods in color. That's closer to ya.
