    Dont know what you are talking about, but I do go to SIlver Lake a few times a year. We have been searching for trails for about 2 years now in that area... nothing really.

    Some nice stuff up towards Petosky if you get to know some of the local wheelers up there.

    There is the Mounds near Flint.

    Baldwin MI. I ride the trails there on my dirt bike and there are truck trails also. Some of them get pretty nasty in wet weather. The motorcycle loops are called Big "O" and little "O". The truck trails kinda run along side the bike trails. If you look on a map and find Baldwin, you will see a National forest close by. That's the place. I haven't been there in about 3 years so hopefully it's still open.

    Thank you......Detroit!

    Yeah, I am in Newyago. I have heard of WallBear, just never been there. There is a few good trails up here, just have to watch where u go as DNR does heavy patrols at times.
