Need help on riding places

Recommended Posts

I am trying to plan a weekend ride for me and my buddies during the Red Bud National we would ride on Saturday and hit the race on Sunday on the way home (back to Illinois). Can any one tell me where would be a good place to go riding somewhat close to Red Bud. Mainly trails and maybe an mx track and a place to camp. Thanks in advance for any advice!!

check out cedar creek trail it has 3

loops 7 to 14 miles long. it is by freemont mi but I think it will be the closest trail to where you will be.

Id say your choices are

1. Cedar Creek trails in Twin Lake Michigan 2 loops that equal 23 miles. Quad width trail.

2. Holton Horseshoe trails roughly 6 loops equaling maybe 80 miles. Tight single track. Plates technically needed for 2 of the loops (but you can get away without it probably)

3. White Cloud trail. About 35 miles of really nice trail.

Then you have Big Air Motocross east of Freemont. www.bigairmotocross.com Nice motocross track. I have rode ther for years.

Camping is a plenty around there. Heck if you are just gonna rough camp you can camp on any state land with a DNR permit. If you need help with a campground let us know I am sure we can find something for you once you figure out were you want to ride.

Red Bud Nationals is an awsome experiance. I will be there this year as well.

We bring a kids wagon to haul all our stuff up the hill. we bring a cooler, chairs, munchies.....A wagon works great for that.

I think last year they wouldn't let us bring EZ-ups. That sucked. cause it was always hot there.

bring sun screen and lots of beverages. Have a great time.

And if possible park out back. They now have a rear entrance to the track and you can park in the field behind the track. I hear that is the hot ticket to getting in and out of there in good time.

      From everyone else's experience have you ridden anything in Michigan that compares to riding the Tomahawk B and C loops in Wolverine?  I'm finding myself becoming a Tomahawk snob because I can't seem to find any other trails that compare to the Tomahawk.  The elevation changes/hills, the woops, the tight twisty trails, the rocks the roots just the all out flow of the trail is amazing.  Everything we have tried this year to me doesn't have that wow factor and just seems flat and twisty.   
       
      Anyone have any other recommendations to try before the season is done?
       
      Thank you

      got lots of high resolution small area maps,  jeremies VVV maps are great,  but I'm looking for a single map that shows the trail,  and the roads and highways and the cities and towns -  trying to plan my next assault on the MCCCT,  trying to do it "modular"  with a series of Home bases,   so a map showing both would really speed up my process

      I was thinking that there are a few riders from out of state that might not be as familiar with our trail system/DNR websites. I received an email from the DNR today with some great links that I thought I'd share for anyone who is interested. Note, all can be accessed by the first page, but since it's hard to navigate on a phone sometimes, I added individual links as well.

      I just joined the dual sport club as well as this forum.  Grabbed an ‘06 KLX250 and am looking for fellow locals to ride with (have plates and ORV)..  Also have a truck and free time for getting north.  I’ve been riding a road bike for many years (Magna 750 currently), but the off road aspect is new to me.  Since getting the bike, I’ve been logging miles on local dirt roads, but there’s nowhere to really get off road in Washtenaw county.  Planning a trip with a bunch of quad riders near Gladwin at the end of the month, but hoping to hook up with some other bike riders specifically sooner and/or later.  Being new to off road (albeit fairly confident), my better judgement is telling me to avoid heading out solo right away.  Any friendly folks willing to ride?  Or even, any other advice?

      We have been going on adventures every other weekend riding everything Michigan has to offer within a few hour distance of where we live.  This is a short one of us playing around on the Moss Lake trails in Rapid River MI.  It's not a bad trail, a little choppy for how many roots are on the trail but none the less fun as hell!
