I can feel that spring is on the way, the snow is melting. anyone in Michigan know of any decent trails. preferably in West Michigan area? I'm just getting into this off roading fun, so I don't know of any good areas to see what my truck can do!

Harrison is about an hour north of Lansing. There is quite a few trails. There only as difficult as you make them. There is hills to climb and streams to cross. It just depends on you.

I know it is a long way to go but the Upper Peninsula has a more trails than you could ever need. Most are old logging roads that are overgrown to different degrees. Fresh logging trails have more mud and obsticals (misc. tree parts) and others are just more like a Sunday drive.

Also the motels are fairly cheep. Some are $40. per night in Marquette.

I'm will freely admit to being biassed towards the U.P. but I was born and raised there.

I want to make a trip up to the UP and hit some trails up there sometime this decade. Would like to do it this summer, but it's doubtful. :blueevil:

I grew up in Grand Rapids, and went to College in East Lansing.

I've been to Silver Lake about 4 times, and miss it now that i'm in Texas.

If you've never been there before it's a must, it's a lot of fun. It's a ton of fun Memorial Weekend, 4th of July weekend, and Labor Day weekend. Those are all the times i've been there, off holiday may be fun too :):

Maybe a dumb question Super, but did you get to the dunes last weekend? I got there Monday for the first time ever for an hour or so. Had a blast. The wife and I will definitely be back. At least now she knows how much I need to do to my truck. :D:

Drummond Island (in the u.p.) has quite a bit to offer
