The mounds, honestly dont know how bad it will be, the guys running tractor tires pretty much destroy it for everyone else with 4' ruts. Lots of mud to play in though.

yes..most towns here have code that water lines are 48-52 inches below surface..some cities with older lines are under 48 and mains are popping ..out further west of me near NY line....houses have no water due to frozen lines and lots are on wells like me...so not help from city or town municipals ..your on your own there....we have frost heaves in the road that look like fault lines..lol....pot holes like bomb craters...and its snowing out now again..

Not sure where you are coming from but we travel 5 hours to the bridge to venture around the UP. Been to Drummond Island a few times and never disappointed for mud, rocks, some hills and great scenery. Planning a trip to the Trout Lake area 3rd week of April - we'll be lucky if we can make it on the trails, roads or the trip due to deep snow. If the UP isn't a option I like the Kalkaska trail system. Don't forget the increase in state tags this year!
