suggestions for visitors?

Wife, kids and I are heading in to Michigan for the weekend. Coming from IL, heading up 31 towards Manistee. Any suggestions for family friendly, light wheeling trails along this route? Nothing crazy, haven't had this TJ off road yet.

There are some pretty easy trails near twin Lake. As you are heading north on 31 you would get off at the Fremont/Holton Rd exit. You turn right toward Twin Lake and drive a few miles to Sweeter Rd, turn right on Sweeter. Just before it makes a bend there is a golf course on the left at 4100 Sweeter Rd. You will turn left toward the golf course. Once you turn left you will have to turn right, drive past the club house and the road turns to dirt. Stay on this and you will end up in part of Manistee National Forest. Stay off the marked spots and anything that looks like it is eroding.

Its worth the time to see Silver lake. Although the town is pretty much shut down for the winter, you can still enjoy the dunes. If you dont feel like driving on them, you can still go on the pedestrian side and look around. It is 6 miles west of 31. Take exit 149 and head west.

Some friends mentioned that one too, thanks. Wonder what condition the trails will be in with all the rain they're calling for the next few days?
