Tin Cup Spring OHV Trails

Monday, May 13, 2019

Alt Names

Lake County, Carrieville State Forest Campground

Last Known StatusOpen

Located in the Pere Marquette State Forest, this area offers two separate trail loops – one 19 mile motorcycle trail and one 18 mile OHV trail.

The trails wind through a mixed hardwood forest and are mostly hardpacked and smooth. There is no fee to ride here but all machines must display a current Michigan ORV Sticker.

Overnight parking is not permitted at the staging area but camping can be found at nearby Carrieville State Forest Campground, which has access to the Little Manistee trails.
