    We are originally from central Michigan but moved away many moons ago. Currently live in Tampa Florida.i had shoulder surgery 3weeks ago and am on short term disability. Started feeling cooped up at home so decided to load up the P1000-5 and head north and visit family and friends and get some riding in. Been a long time ago (70’s) but used to to spend time in and around the Huron National Forest riding and some in the UP. I’m sure things have changed a bunch, such as the old ski lodge hill near St. Helen is closed to rigging now.

    Ok, so need some suggestions on where to go riding. Thinking we will get in a day of canoeing on the Ausable and 2-3 days of riding in the lower and then head across the straits for another 1-2 days of riding.

    We don’t have rooms booked yet and could use some suggestions on “cabin” types. Needs to be pet friendly though.

    Welcome some suggestions, please?

    Although i have not personally stayed here, Clear Lake Resort in West Branch looks like a nice place. It is close to the Ambrose Lake trail, which connects to West Branch, Rose City, St. Helen, Luzurn, and MIo trails. A lot of the trails are 50 inch or less, but i see the big machines out playing in this area all the time. The bar across the street has good food and a gas pump. Clear lake Resort, Michigan Lodging, Family Vacation Resort.

    How did the trip to Michigan go? What was your favorite ride?

    My Honda is in Northeastern MI, but it doesn't get out of the local area. I'd like to change that..........

    Sorry I’m late responding.....

    This was great. Didn’t get as many riding miles as I would have liked but still got plenty. Best riding wears till in the Huron National forest and the eastern UP. Sure was a reminder how beautiful the state is.

    Think I got the wife 90% there on buying a summer home somewhere in Northern Michigan. I’m thinking somewhere between Grayling or Mio right on the Ausable river but still haven’t ruled out a place on the water in the UP.

    Gotta keep working it!
