About a square mile to wheel consisting of technical trails and mud.

31" tires can make it here, if you stay out of the deap mud. MT's greatly help!

It was too nice out, so I went out there to check it out this afternoon. From the directions above, I see I was in the right place!

GPS Coords are
N41*24'30.6"
W82*17'01.6"
Elev 612'

Conditions were VERY muddy. There were a few people on quads. Some of the trails appear to be very tight, but I may have been on the wrong ones. (I didn't go in far)

I was very happy to be on 33's and locked f/r.

(There was a bone stock Cherokee and '78 Bronco going in when I was leaving - I should have stayed to see how quick and how bad they got stuck)

I have been back there before but on the other side of the tracks off a back-road entrance. My stocker on basically 31’s can be swallowed up by a few of the ruts. There is a valley of some kind in the back but never ventured down there. I didn’t want to get stuck out there but got hung up a few times and had to use the skinny peddle plus the locker a lot.

I should clear up the directions on the last map a little bit. Where the star is located at is pretty much the entrance. The entrance is on the Northwest side of the railroad track.
