How far are these rides usually from Detroit? I am new to dirt riding and have no idea where there is anything worth riding within a reasonable distance of the city. I understand if no one wants to share favorite routes publicly, but what's a good area just to head out and explore, within about an hour or so of the city?

There's a lot of good dirt roads to explore north of Rochester. Also Highland, Milford area. A little over an hour north or west of the city will get you to some good dirt roads.

Judging from their promo images, this upcoming weekend's campground looks promising
