Mio loop

Looking for something different...Evart,and Tomahawk have been my favourites...any feedback on the Mio loop(May 02nd) would be appreciated...thanks in Advance!:p

Both the Mio and Hunt Creek are very good and challenging loops. Combined they will take up a day to ride. Some good hills, tight and lots of whoops and rocks. There is also balck dirt sections not just sand. The Mio loop is wider but has nice big ruts and some beautiful hardwoods. If you just ride Mio you can ride in a few hours and stay on it pretty hard. Great rolling hills!

Our favorite loops are Evart, Wolverine, and Mio/Hunt creek.

Evart is the most difficult of the three however, Hunt creek does have some surprising hills that come up quickly with a generous supply of big rocks. The first time I took my YZ450 there I had to be careful with the right hand...

I think after riding these you will add to your list of favorites.

I love the Mio loop. It's a bit of everything but I would say decent amount of sand, some tight stuff, some decent hills and great scenery.

Just be aware that the MCCC is holding thier Rites of Spring in Atlanta which is north of Mio. You'll be fine - just stay south of 612.

+1 Generous supply of 3 inch diameter rocks.

But really very interesting trail, varied terrain.

Hey Denny

Mio is alright. Lots and lots of rocks. Gets chewed up in spots from quads. All in all a decent trail. Some sand , some dirt and a nice little section called the "Black Yuckies". Nice swampy area with thick, gooey mud. It is actually quite cool. The large pools of water will waterfall down across the trail when it is really wet. Add the Hunt creek loop which both trails share a section and it makes for a good days ride. We normally park in the middle of the shared section, do one loop, gas up and do the other loop.

Au Sable Valley Inn on M-33 is about ten minutes away. Very nice accomodations, indoor pool, wi-fi, newer clean rooms. Plenty of food stores and places to eat within minutes.

I will have to agree with nuddle8. Au Sable Inn is a nice place. There is also the Mio motel and several places that have cabins for rent like the Rainbow resort.

      I recently saw someone mention that we do way too much talking on this forum and not enough riding. Well, it warmed up a little bit yesterday, so I decided to get off my butt and do something about it...

      WISCONSIN - DNR Seeks Public Input on Proposed Master Plan Amendments
      Proposed master plan amendments would improve ATV/UTV access at three Northwoods properties
      Dear BRC Alert Subscriber,
      The public will have an opportunity to review and comment on proposed amendments that would provide access for motorized recreational vehicles at three properties in the Northwoods region of Wisconsin.
      In September 2017, the Natural Resources Board approved a recommendation from the Department of Natural Resources to evaluate several amendment requests the agency has received to provide all-terrain vehicle and utility terrain vehicle access across the Upper Wolf River Fishery Area and the Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters Area. These trails would create linkages in the larger regional trail networks.
      The department has also received requests to construct a multi-use parking area at the Willow Flowage Scenic Waters Area to serve snowmobilers, ATV/UTVs, and boaters. These facilities are not currently authorized by the respective master plans for these properties. In order for the trails and parking area to be constructed, the master plans would need to be amended to allow these uses.
      The department is not undertaking a review of the entire range of management actions at these properties, but rather is focusing on potentially authorizing these changes to the existing master plans.
      For initial information about the amendment process, search the DNR website, dnr.wi.gov, for "master planning" and click on the link for "Northwoods amendments." People can fill out online questionnaires to submit comments, or can download the form and mail it in. Comments, either online or hardcopy, are due by February 4, 2018.
      For additional information, contact John Pohlman, planner at 608-264-6263.
      Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.

      I am looking to buy a bike form a facebook add in Michigan. The seller has a clean MSO (Manufacture Statement of Origin).
      The document can be signed over to me and everything. My concern is the taxes when I bring the MSO to the secretary of state.
      Does anybody know how this works? Will I have to pay taxes on the original purchase price to title the bike?

      Some guys I know from riding trials are up riding Tomahawk today and tomorrow.  I haven't ridden it yet but was toying with the idea of running up there tomorrow morning.
      How do the B & C loops compare to Evart as far as being tight and technical?  How about from an elevation perspective?
      I'm just trying to figure out what I'm getting myself into.
      Thanks!
