We stayed up in Marinette county earlier this year. We were in the southern part of the county sort of near Crivitz. We got a map and tried to do some ATVing, but all we could really find was paved roads. Miles and miles of paved roads. Kinda pissed us off. Finally at the second or third bar we stopped at, we asked where the heck can we find some real trails. Guys said we need to be up by Dunbar or Goodman in the north of the county. Or closer to our rental cabin, we should head into Oconto county.
Wish I would have done some research before spending hours on paved roads to nowhere. Lol. We did hit up Oconto county on a different day and it was awesome. Next time I go up to marinette I'll know where to start

That's awesome I've had my quad for two months now and only have 10 miles on because all the trails I've looked at are closed. Never really thought to look up that way. Do know of any good places to dump off in the southern part of the trails?

I'm in the same boat as you. Had my new 15 Grizz for close to 2 months and it still has the same 7 miles on it as it had when I took delivery. Dying to ride it but I need to string together a couple days in a row of I'm gonna travel that far. Maybe after the holidays...

Cutlass you should make a run to black river falls. The trails should be opened back up now that the deer hunting season has come to an end. It is close enough for a day trip.

I've been waiting for those trails to be open but they are closed due to "warm temps and heavy rains". What I don't get is they keep the trails open with those conditions in the summer???? I guess I don't get their reasoning.

I'm gonna be heading up this week to Dunbar,my birthday is in the 29th so I'll probably go before that. we gotta plan something this spring. My dad lives about a hour away from Dunbar right off hwy 41, so the drive ain't bad for me.

I'm still waiting for the rivers to freeze over so I can go slide around on them. Lol

I know, i know. Last year I went on a birthday ride with the rancher and snow was over the top of my headlights haha that was a blast!!

We can plan something where you stay by me a night then the morning we head out cause i know you got a long ass drive when the time comes lol!!

February marks my 1 year with the grizz almost 3,000 miles!!! :D

I got the thing for free,1990 dutchmen, i think it sleeps 8 lol. Put a new cable in and it now pops up, just need to see if the electrical works and needs new tires and a inner wheel well(hardest part i think) and im gonna re pack the bearings. Im gonna go nuts on it this spring while the trails are thawing haha.
