Trails in the UP

Are there any trails or ORV Parks in the UP, that a group from Minnesota (Twin Cities Metro mostly) could come ride on? Our group is talking about making a trip next summer to the West Coast of MI, to run on the Sand Dunes. But also looking for other options?

West coast of the lower has Silver Lake, a bunch of federal land (that has some scenic stuff but nothing too crazy) and a couple parks not far off.

The UP has Drummond Island (which will be awarded BFG outstanding trails award this weekend) and there is a park on the island as well. As for the rest of the UP, lots of amazing scenery, but nothing too technical. Most of the good stuff is further to the west in the UP as well.

Tell me more about the good stuff further to the west in the UP.
I will be going back up to the Porcupine Mtns area again this fall and would like to see and do more trails.

Well, I suppose it depends on what you call good stuff. lol. Nothing hardcore. Just lots and lots of beautiful trails. West of Munising, try to stay near the northern shore. There are some nice scenic trails. Lots of waterfalls everywhere you look (get a decent map and it'll tell you where they all are). Go up towards Copper Harbor. Nice stuff up there as well.

I haven't been able to explore the Porkies much yet, but it's my understanding there are some amazing trails over that way as well.

I guess it depends what you're looking to see and do really.

Its not necessarily wheeling but its cool to see. A lil place called "Devil's Washtub" up near Copper Harbor. If you're heading up that way its definitely worth seeing. Its a natural cut out in the rock on the shore of Lake Superior, like a cave with an open roof. When waves roll in, water shoots up through the roof of the "tub". Looks awesome after/during storms. You can swim there during calmer weather.
