Drummond Island Ferry info:
Drummond Island Transportation - Ferry and Airport

I rode the route at Drummond a few weeks after they re-classified most of the trails to routes. It is definately rocky, slow going, challenging in some spots. The scenery is incredible.

Plan on being in low most of the time and plan on getting into some water. The water holes have solid bottoms (rock) so you don't have to worry to much about getting stuck in the mud.

There are approximately 55 miles of RZR friendly trails but you will need at least a couple days to explore them all. Remember you will be traveling at a crawl a lot of the time. I would suggest using a GPS and pick up a ORV map from a local shop when you get there.

Re: Cedar Creek Trail Muskegon MI

Is drummond the "ATV friendly island"? I have heard from my cousin that there is an island that you can pretty much drive your machine anywhere in the island, including towns...

Here are a few photo's taken on Drummond Island last weekend. Definately a slow/technical trail system. There are plenty of ORV routes to bypass the quad trails, but the rzr with stock wheels/tires (I removed my aluminum rims and wider terracross tires), and a lift of some sort will carry you through any of the atv trails (at least all we were on).
I was amazed at how well the rzr did in 2wd on all but a few places were I didn't want to chance not having awd to help.
















The Orv routes are wider, but they are just as technical. Actually in some cases worse.
I wouldn't run any wheels or tires that you are particularly fond of. They wont be so pretty when you leave.

Re: Cedar Creek Trail Muskegon MI

Looks like fun to me! Where do you stay at? Also, could you ride outside the trails or did you have to trailer it to the trail head? I ask because some places in the U.P. you can ride on the roads at 25mph legally.

Re: Cedar Creek Trail Muskegon MI

We rented a cabin. Here is a link to the Chamber of Commerce drummondislandchamber.com - Drummond Island Lodging

This was kind of a last minute decision, so I had a little trouble finding something open, but we were prepared to camp anyway.
There is only 1 road that is not open to ORV traffic, and that is M134. It is the road you come in on off the ferry. We parked the trailer and didn't hook it back up until we left.

We rode the trails for 3 days and didn't come close to riding them all. I think the most mileage we got in one day was about 40, in 6 or 7 hours.
The trails are marked much better than when we were there about 8 years ago, but they have alot of room for improvement. It is very easy to get turned around, even with a GPS.
I am glad I put the stock wheels/tires back on. All but one wheel is dented, or scratched. I haven't gotten underneath to look for damage, but we took quite a few good hits. I'm still pretty impressed with how well the rzr got around. There were alot of times I thought to myself, This ones gonna hurt, but we would just roll over it.

All in all, a great trip.

Brian

We rented a cabin from Northern Properties, not far from papins resort, and were about 3 miles from the closest trailhead. It actually put us in a nice central position. We spent one day on the north side of the island. No ATV trails, but a beautiful ride through the Maxton plains, and Fossil ledge at the lake.

Re: Cedar Creek Trail Muskegon MI

Re: Cedar Creek Trail Muskegon MI

All you need is a atv trail pass. The same one that you need for all the trails in Michigan. I was up there last year and I have stock tires and no lift kit. I bottomed out alot! But still had a blast.

Any place that sells hunting & fishing licenses, Kmart, ATV dealers all should have them.
