Perfect, thank you.
Question for those that might know: There is a an ORV Trail Licence - which I understand I will need regardless, but if I don't plan on doing any of the single track would I need to also get the ORV Trail Permit?
Thanks. So I'm going to say with my plan to do mainly the big bike route with maybe some of the primary options I'm going to get both the stickers to be on the safe side. I feel like running into a LEO and trying the "I didn't know" excuse won't get me too far
Might as well. When I am going to be up in the area, I just get all the stickers so I don't have to think about it. The money funds good causes.
I didn't end up sticking to the whole route due to some weather, and some mid-judging of distances on my part, but I just got back from a 4.5 day trip and had a blast!
Thanks Cannonshot for some great tracks!
1350 miles for me on the TW200’s (and my) first real trek!
It was a rainy week, stuck to the track save for some weather (mud) bypasses.
Great experience, huge variety of terrain and conditions. Awesome adventure!
I hope to put a report in the rides section.
Sunrise at the tip of the Keewenaw
I think I must have been chasing you for some of it! I did notice some fresh tracks up on the Keewanaw when I was there, I think it was Wed when I was there, around noon. I started in St Ignace and rode it counterclockwise. I got stuck in the middle of the woods riding in that nasty storm on Tuesday! I've ridden in some rain before, but in the middle of the woods, riding a 2 track, in a torrential downpour with thunder and lightning, THAT was a new experience!
I left Tuesday from St Ignace and went counterclockwise. Caught the lightening out on the flat on the approach to the Two Hearted!
I caught a few two feet deep puddles later in the week!
I saw tracks following Cannonshot’s track out of Land of lakes...
Sorry we didn’t meet up.
Rode some more of the UPAT this week while on vacation.
Still one of my favorite sections, near Baraga.
However, finally rode some near Gwinn. And that was fun as well!
Such a great route of trails, and so close to home. Still a few sections left to finish, so I will be back again.
Watching @BuiltnotBought s thread with interest!
Just started a ride report for my adventure: https://advrider.com/f/threads/new-bike-new-rider-new-adventure-on-the-upat.1407235/
Suffering from PMS again! Anyone have any links to favorite UPAT video collections?
These are almost 7 years old: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYrmeL_obo7bE4BWDQZ_6XnlxZJsD2bYu
Love the UP!
Was on parts of the Big Bike UP Adventure Trail in July/August 2019 -- we decided to buy the Trail Permits to support their upkeep, glad we did, ran into enforcement that first afternoon.
Any groups riding in July (that's supposed to be the best month? I'm asking ) that I could join?
... July = bugs??
I did Early Sept and got caught it being a tad too cold at nights - for camping. Riding temps were good.
September is a crap shoot. Sometimes the weather gods cooperate and it is beautiful, others not so much. July be prepared for insects.
Along the Texas Gulf Coast, we got bugs, big time.
But I have no idea what UP bugs are all about.
Are we talking mosquitos and/or some other bugs?
What is the " Best Ever" month to ride that area?
