I am a new Jeep owner as of last April. I am looking for some trails around the Jenison/Grand Rapids area and some people to show me the ropes.

|spieg||Early and late in the season its not uncommon for there to be less than 20 vehicles on the dunes total, even on the weekends. There are still plenty of days every season where they dont bother using vouchers because there arent enough people there to worry about it. My friends and I typically avoid memorial day weekend, labor day weekend, and the weekends on either side of 4th of July. Sometimes its fun to go on those weekends just to watch people doing stupid stuff though, too.|

At Silver Lake, I'm pretty sure the rules/enforcement are there to keep people from killing themselves and others. It's still fun if you play by the rules.
As for the crowds, you can avoid them by avoiding busy summer holidays and weekends. I was there twice this year. First time was in early August and we took a couple extra days to avoid the weekend. Came and went on the dunes as I pleased all day Thursday and Friday, no problems. Good sized crowd but never too much to find a good parking spot on the beach or to watch the sunset from the top of a hill.
Second time was over Columbus Day weekend and there wasn't many people there at all. Saturday had a decent showing but by Sunday afternoon, looked like there might have been only a dozen full sized vehicles out there and a handful of ATVs. Not bad at all if you can avoid the big crowded times.
It's just a day trip from the Grand Rapids area so if I lived by you guys, I'd be out there all the time.

This thread when it started was looking good. For those of you that have never been to silver lake take a good look at the picture on there information page it really looks like that. They have sucked the fun out of that, everyone needs to try it at least once but it's a zoo. Way to many rules and tickets if you get to crazy or even think crazy.
I run old fire roads and trails just the word fire roads not really roads at all and most 4x4 are never going to make it but now our jeep are great.

Way Way back in the day (like 40 plus years ago), there was a marked motorcycle trail off of M-37, North of Baldwin (I believe started from the power line road), known as "The Big Tooth" - any idea if that trail is still there? As hard as is was with 2 wheels, I don't know if it would even be doable with 4.

Just thought this was worth bumping to the top

So Grant / Newaygo area, what kind of trails to you run up there in God's country? Like "Over the River and Though the Woods, to Grandmother's House" type stuff, or are there maybe some hills and trees to climb up there too?

Love Rockford... And hot dogs
I'm out of Midland, but hang in Comstock Park every other weekend... Be nice to get together sometime.
And Kids in the Mudd is a pretty cool place, was there last weekend. It just needs to dry up a bit unless you're Jeeps built for 2' of mud.
