This area is a very large gravel pit that belongs to the local township and the gravel company is apparently pulling out. They are working toward getting a grant from the state to make this an official Offroad Park. I've heard it is about 350 acres. Its located On the edge of Holly Michigan in Groveland Twp. This is the second demo they did this year while waiting on the grant.

I went to the first one, in August but had to work today. Was there a good turnout? Did everyone have a designated time slot to ride in the park?

I went only as a spectator today, my JK is still being worked on. There was a pretty good crowd of those participating at noon and I heard they were lined up at 9am to get in. It didn't look like there were any time slots. It appears to be pretty much self controlled and went well. It was bitter cold there today. I was only there for a few hours, but it looks like it could be a nice park if the park grant goes through.

The mud was pretty thick since it rained hard out here the day before and it made for some interesting hill climbs.

Nice! I was a few days late to register, I'm glad they got a worthy turnout. We need more places close.
