Wide open spaces

Anybody know a good place (relatively close) I can take the kids to ride dirt bikes? I have a place in T.C. and a Higgins Lake. I'd like some place closer we can go for the day. Thanks!!

Where is that? The only Edison Field I know of is where the Anahiem Angels play.

John,
The Mounds is OK and just that, OK...
I suggest the Ambrose loop in Rose City.. It's a nice day trip and only about 2 hours from Shelby TWP...
The loop is about 9 miles and very forgiving for kids, my nephews like it tons.. Venture off into the connectors and they will be in for tough times, but you will love it..

This is the site you need
http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/1,1607,7...8330--,00.html

I also suggest joining the Michigan cycle conservation club.. $25 and you can EXCELLENT map book and they host a few GREAT rides and rides for kids...

Lemme know if we can help..
Oh ya, the ride for today was cancelled due to crappy trail comditions, we are hoping for two weekd from today (supercross is next week)... It would be great if you could join us, the "guru" may even join...

James suggested a few places....The Holly Family Track is a great place for beginners. The track isn't great but my kids were just learning so it was good for them.

I'm trying to get my dad to make a course in his back paddock at his house. He's got a Kobota, a backhoe and lots of time! It used to have horses in it so it's completely clear of trees and rocks.

What would be a good track to try and build on 5-6 acres? Of course, not TOO technical because the kids are still small....but something fun that they can grow into and get better at over a couple of years.....then change it to something sweet later!

Anyone have some pics I can look at? Sorry for hijacking the thread.

Hire Cori's brother to do it... They have a track building business and tons of years of experience doing layout
It would be cheaper, faster and safer than doing it yourself
