Trails near Grand Rapids, MI?

Any Jeepers in the Grand Rapids area know of any trails? Not so much ORV parks, I'm thinking more along the lines of state land two tracks, wilderness type stuff. I've heard of stuff in the mid-state area but not much around west MI.

Side note, I need some guys to go wheeling with. I'm fairly new and not about to hit the trails alone.

I live in Middleville. There are some seasonal roads around here. Some of them can be challenging after it rains.

Seasonal roads are about perfect for me starting out. I kind of know the Middleville area, whereabouts are some of these roads?

The seasonal roads are in the Yankee Springs/Middleville area. One of the starting points is on South Yankee Springs Road from there you just kinda follow the trails around.
The address on google maps for this trail is

3998 S Yankee Springs Rd
Delton, Michigan

There are also some that are a little ways away from these trails. Theres a decent amount of trails that you can spend a good few hours exploring!

Another start to the trail is on Gun Lake Road

6898 Gun Lake Rd
Rutland Charter Township, Michigan

Again, the address comes up as this on google maps...Not sure how accurate this will be....This trail doesn't show up on maps as a road.

Let me know if you have any questions/and or meet up and go out sometie

Ive also heard of some trails in the Allegan State Forest, but haven't actually gone there yet.

I am just over the border of Indiana in the New Buffalo area. Would a stock JKU be alright on these trails? I have relatives in Grand Rapids who may want to do this with me

Seasonal roads are great. Im from Metro Detroit and went to one of those near Traverse City. Pretty easy trail, even with my wifes Liberty, but with a beautiful scenery. Im looking for something not too far to spend a day and come back at night, with my Wrangler though.

Where did you go in Traverse City? My grandparents live there and I visit every summer. Make sure you grab some cherries on your next trip up!

If you are looking for some guys to wheel with you may want to joint the Great Lakes Four Wheel Drive Club. They often have trail rides and if you post there you will find several local off road clubs that will let you tag along on a trail ride. Plenty of great guys to hang with.

Look about an hour north of you in the manistee national forest. There are a ton of two tracks up there that you could check out.
