Grab! I got it. What a great spot, very pretty. I road 113 miles today. These are roads/sights I would have never seen if not for this game.




What a nice spot!!




Here is the Tag!! N44*29.359 W085*24.995


Another view, there is some great unmarked riding in this area!!

Agree

Without a doubt my favorite part of the state to ride so far. that is the spirit of the game, get some like minded folks out riding and enjoying the great sites.

Grab

Grab


I had a great ride picking my way through the woods on both sides of the Manistee river. I got to ride on the MCCCT trail, the shore to shore trail, the north country trail and countless dirt roads and 2Tracks.

I was considering this as the new tag


But I decided I wanted to go a bit further.

Tag!


You may recognize this area but I bet you have never been to this spot.
It is off of the road that goes to here.


Just before you get here.


Take a right on this road.


You will find the tag location once you see the lake.

I put at least 150 miles on the bike today on 5 hour ride. 80 percent of that was dirt roads and 2Tracks.

Wow, that's great!! sounds like you had some great riding! I don't know where the new spot is but it looks nice, you guys are gonna keep pushing me to areas I've never been before. I know the new tag is on the lakeshore so I need to figure out dirt roads all the way over there!!

Nope!!! The big black beauty really hates gravel plus I was with a small group that would have been really pissed if I would have taken them down any gravel at all!!!

You rode the North County Trail? On a motorcycle? I've ridden it on my mt. bike but thought it was OFF limits?........The first time I was at that tag spot there was a house there.

I know where you are . . .

I live 5 miles from there. Yep, it's purty. Tiesma? A good place for picnics. NO DOGS, tho (the sign). ElDorado wasn't there at first, there was another turn-out made but they found some kind of Scottish(?) thistle (endangered) growing there and had to move ElDorado to where it is now. (thanxtaxpayers). I have a pic of my TDM there but I'm too stupid to cut and paste it.

Some sections of the trail follow dirt roads just like the shore to shore trail. I did not violate the trail through the woods.
