    Upper Peninsula MI Beta

    Anyone here bike in the Upper Peninsula of MI? Looking for some beta on a couple routes, figure I'd ask here on the off chance that the few folks up here that ride in the deep back country also lurk here.

    Hey Chad, I followed (and posted to) your threads on bikepacking.net and mmba.org. I think I remember you saying you didn't have a GPX but did run a spot? Care to share our spot track for the ride?

    Another rider and I actually scouted an old track that's no longer on the topo maps that links Triple A Rd to Marquette bypassing about half of 510. I bet we were 2 of 10 people that will travel that road this year. Very cool but also very steep and *maybe* 90% rideable. If you ever do the Sooper Yooper again let me know as I think you'd enjoy the addition of what we rode. We tried to find another trail further NE but were stopped by signed gates on both ends.
