Includes a trailblock!


Everytime I think about that one or look at the pictures, I start laughing. I keep thinking about what that person(s) thought when they got back to their car and the tree was gone.

Ooooh...better yet, having someone else drive up behind them and wonder "Now why did this dummy stop in the middle of the trail???" :ROTFL:

So a few of us are thinking of doing a small trip to the area and were hoping someone has pics or more info they could share. Looks like we'll have 2 Land Rover Discovery and 2 Wranglers.

How were the trails? Anyone local be wanting to come out sometime in May? Is Jayme still around or maybe Grumpy can make an appearance?

Hey Mike - good to see ya here! Unfortunately, I'm not much help on the Manistee trails. The Manistee trip I was going to go on, we never made it to. If I were home, I'd love to come out... but I currently reside in Alaska until sometime in September. I'll have to catch up with you guys again later in the year. Aaron might be willing to show up in Grumpy though. :D

Mike - if you poke around the site, I've got pictures posted from our various trips to the Manistee area. We'd love to join you, but May is kind of busy for us, as we will be heading out to Utah that month for a couple of weeks.

The trails in May can get quite muddy or can be bone dry. As for difficulty, they are primarily forest service roads and few rougher logging roads thrown in for good measure. Several trails run near the Marquette River and are quite scenic.

Check out the motor vehicle usage maps on the Manistee NF website: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/hmnf/maps ... RDB5275851
It looks like they have updated them for this year, maps are divided by county not just district. These will have the most up to date info on currently open trails and vehicle size limits for those trails. A Michigan ORV sticker is not required to drive on NF lands.

If there is any other info I can help with, let me know!

-Vicki
