MI trails (west)

Moved here a year ago from So Cal. Reading the Great Lakes forum, it seems pretty sparse. Less than 10 threads in a year. So how/where do folks meet up for trail runs, meet & greets, etc? I'm in portage near Kalamazoo.

West MI Trails, meets

Hi Matt -
Welcome to western MI!

I'd suggest that you check with area 4WD shops for clubs, trail suggestions, or introductions to other wheelers.

Here in GR, I am aware of a club, Two-Trackers 4WD club (Google for Web site). I have never joined with them, but some acquaintances have, or are active members.

The "Blessing of the Jeeps" is coming up in Mesick, MI (~25 miles beyond Cadillac on M-115) - usually the weekend before Mothers' Day (? - see site). Good networking opportunity?

To locate trails, Michigan DNR has a list and maps on their site. Again, the local shops could be a resource.

I've done only a single drive with a group. It actually was a novice driving class arranged through the Fortune Bay Expedition Team (Grand Rapids/Courtesy Jeep). They, too, have a site. Also, they are forming an outing into northern Ontario, this Fall.

Happy trails,

P.S. - Some of the FBET people occasionally post in the Regional section on the Expedition Portal Forum (www.expeditionportal.com/forum).

While I'm not a fan of facebook... these days it seems like most groups use facebook to setup trips and what not.

Since in your in the K-Zoo/Portage area, maybe swing by JCR Offroad to check out the shop and talk to the people there. They also have an open house event coming up on June 10th.
