Re: Wheeling in Mt Pleasant MI?
Youre not too far from Cadilac, there are lots of trails around there. Thats where the Jamborees were at one time(matbe they still are). There are also many, many fire roads to be explored just west of Oscoda. The last time I was in that area, I found some pretty challenging terrain and some trails that looked like they had been abandoned for years. The area just West of Thunder Bay has alot of public access land and is relatively ignored by the masses which make for some peaceful camping in a very clean environment, just go prepared and be careful. Theres a small town to the West of you called Bitely, and you can find some good places to wheel just past highway 131. Ive done some wheelin in Lewiston(snowmobile trails), Mio, Sterling, Metz, Indian River, Caseville, Houghton Lake, ect, ect. You really shouldnt have any trouble finding a place to wheel. Especially where you're at. If you were in SE Mich, it would be a little diffrent. If you want to do some REAL fun stuff, head to the Porcupines in the U.P.. The Porcupines are a beutiful area that doesnt get much traffic. Just do us all a favor, take out your trash. I started visiting that area 15 years ago. At that time you never seen as much as a candy wrapper on the ground anywhere. But over the last maybe ten years, it has got much, much worse. The last time was there was 3 years ago and I actually found a refridgerator out on the trails. [censored]. No wonder the BLM has a stick up their ass. Not that any Jeepers did it, I hope. Any way, I logged the frigidairs coordinates and hauled it out when my stay was over. I set the damn thing on the side of the road where the county would take care of it. So, heres a tip for anyone ignorant and malicious enough to dump their trash in a national damn forest; for half the effort, risk, and enviro impact, you can dump it in a ditch. At least that way when your dumb unemployed ass is working road crew for the county, you'll get to pick up your own trash after all. Sorry for venting, I just got back from a canoe trip on the rifle river, and Im thoroughly disgusted with the trash and debris I seen on the river. So, I hope this helps you out a little. If you need more specific directions, send me an e-mail.
Holy sh*t thats a long way down!
