Are there good places to stay near the Kalkaska trails?Baldwin / Lincoln Hills are not my favorite trails to ride but is the closest state trail system too me. Also Baldwin is very busy on weekends with a lot of idiots out there. Too many times I'm cruising and a dirt bike or that clown (on a ATV) passes you without warning. I don't think that is too smart. Next option is the Kalkaska system. Has good wide routes, atv trails and roads to legally ride. Trails can be tight and hilly with some challenges. You can really ride all day or weekend and never do the same route twice. The only dislike is you'll be going down a trail and you'll see a sign behind you informing you ATV's not allowed, too late! I also always felt the state CO is always looking for you as I have been stopped 50% of the times up there. I would like to do more LP riding as well but driving for 3 hours or more for a day trip is a long day.
Don't forget your 2 state tags this year!
I may be riding these this upcoming weekend. Anyway, it really depends on where you decide to stay. If you stay in Frederick, the ride is pretty short to the trail. However, I am not sure what type of cabins, motels they have available there. I have ridden many times to the Frederick inn for lunch (very good food) but they do not have lodging.good places to stay near the Kalkaska and Frederick trails ? Looking for cabins or something close by nearthe trail systems? Do you have to trailer everything to the trails or can you ride to them
I could see the Kalkaska system maybe hooking up to Atlanta somewhere, but I am almost positive that the leota system will not. If it does, please enlighten me. I would really like to know. That would open up a whole lot of riding for me. Thanks.I like the Kalkaska or Leota systems, many miles of trails and some gravel roads are available. Leota will even bring you into the Atlanta system. If you were to stay near Gaylord and use that as a home base you probably would be easily within a hours trailering to any of these trailheads. Look at a state map and pick a central location and go from there.
Get a cable and a lock and run it through the wheels. It will prevent most people. If they really want them they are going to get them regardless though. However, you bought them to ride them. Dont let the lowlifes ruin your time. That is unless they do steal them:eekI haven't ever ridden these before but my wife's uncle does all the time. What worries me is my machines getting stolen of my trailer at a hotel. It happened to my wife's uncle with a brand new machine. I'm used to going south and staying in cabins with security
