Good question. I have thought about bringing my side x side and quads up as well but not really sure what trails or roads I can be on.

I see where the Voyager Inn in St. Ignace rents ATVs so maybe they have maps. I also think Fishweb.com has links you can click on.

I am going to try Mi-Trale as well as VVmapping.

Not sure if this helps but at least it's a start. I'm sure some of the locals can point us in the right direction/

You can ride the RR grade to Trout Lake and north from there.
Rode out of Brevort to Brimely before. Some on trails and on paved rode.
I don't think you can ride Castle Rock rode out of St.Iggy.

Check Fishweb, there are maps on there.

As Kevin said, take the RR grade north out of St. Iggy. Castle Rock rd is closed to ATV's. Take the Burma grade (north of Moran) west and you can ride to Brevort/Cut River/Trout Lake on the snowmobile trails.

Or just take the RR grade north to Trout Lake. Just be observant, if a road is marked NO ATV's just do not go that route.

Thank you for the reply. I know the area well. We snowmobile your area several times a Winter. Just wasn't sure about ATVs.

Soon as I take delivery of my new side x side we will be heading up.

Thank you
Don

Yep, you won't really find maps either, I am working on that project of getting dedicated ATV trails now - after that they will publish maps.

Basically, if you ride out of Iggy, like has been said, go North out of town, and you are legal to TL, you can't really go East, that is all USFS.
You can't ride castle rock out, but go north of Moran, and you can take the 3 main crossings West, and once you are West of the trail stop intersection (or ATV parking lot) on teh Burma grade, you are good to go anywhere West as you are on DNR land. Good trails up to Rexton in that area.

Have fun. I expect ATVs to get as big as snowmobiles in this area within 5 years.

ATVs in Wisconsin are a huge Spring, Summer, Fall sport. I wish Michigan would take a more proactive approach.

I see over in the Western U.P. that Mi-Trale is very active in creating new trails.

In the past, I and my friends have been reluctant to ride because it seems you never know what areas you can be and what areas not.

I think if Lansing and the Federal people would open their eyes they would see the economic impact of an influx of tourism dollars.

I'll get off my soap box now----Thanks for the information you posted.

OH--And by the way--I've said this before on the snowmobile site that you guys have the BEST GROOMED AN MAINTAINED TRAILS IN THE ENTIRE STATE.

Thanks
Don
