I live in Hillman (about 45 miles away). I'll try to make it. We are fortunate to have many good trails in northeastern Michigan, and thousands of miles of two tracks. Sounds like fun.

And don't forget, if you are playing in Mio that weekend the What Lies Beyond Jeep Club will be hosting a Go Topless Day picnic at Clear Lake State Park on that same Saturday, feel free to stop in around dinner time for a burger or hot dog.

This sounds like a good ride --- Does anyone have any idea of what trails or route -- Is the trailhead the bullgap trailhead off river rd?

Mac56: Yeh, there are some decent hotels. A nice one right on M33, north of the Ausable River. They cater to tourists in that area. Plenty of camping, too.

Anyone have any trails around the Mio area they would recommend? I might be heading up this weekend. Any links to a good map or GPS file?

Spent some time in and around Mio area trails, I even ran up and down bull gap. Of course the pictures don't capture the true incline (for those that have never been there)

We are hoping to make it up... Our cabin is about an hour from Mio. Depending on where we meet we might just get a campsite.

Nice, we're not far from Tawas, our cabin is about 1 mile from Lumbermans Monument a little ways off Monument Rd. There are also some cool 2 tracks by Cooke Dam...

I wish they would hurry up and finish building my new jeep (est. delivery May 4th, but no guarantee)! This looks like exactly the type of trail that myself and my Fiance would like to start off on with the jeep!
