Trail Overview

This is the west side of the Michigan DNR Mio ORV Route. It's open to full-size vehicles and smaller ones with an ORV and trail permit sticker. This section of the route is mostly soft sand with boulders. It travels through the woods of Northern Michigan over rolling hills and some scenic spots. Parts are shared-use trails and snowmobile trails in the winter. There is an ORV trailhead parking lot of the south end of the route called Muskrat Lake ORV Trailhead. Muskrat Lake State Forest Campground is a rustic campground and the ORV route ends directly into the campground which is located on the west side of the route. This campground is also on a small lake called Muskrat Lake.

This trail is mostly soft sand with some boulders. It's been known to have some larger water holes on the trail during wet times, but they do dry off quickly as the area is sand.
