    The Wolverine 4-Wheelers are celebrating 50 years as the oldest continuous 4x4 club in Michigan!

    1965 - 2016

    We are a suburban Detroit-based club established in 1965. We currently have over twenty families involved, with members of all ages. We are a family-oriented club that enjoys trail riding, camping and other social events. The only qualification to join is to be interested in four-wheel drive vehicles. Activities we participate in include four-wheel outings most months, technical sessions and contributions to charity.

    The Wolverine 4-Wheelers were founded in suburban Detroit in 1965, and still going strong today. Throughout its history the Wolverines have been one of the largest clubs of its kind in the area, at one point boasting over 100+ active members. Early on the Wolverines were involved in off-road racing, sand & mud drag racing, obstacle course racing and trail riding. The landscape of the off road scene changed over the years, and the Club has evolved to be a family oriented club with approx. 25 member families across southeastern and mid-Michigan focusing mainly on trail-riding events.

    Meetings are held on a semi-monthly basis, and are hosted at the homes of member families, with events/outings planned monthly. The club plans a wide variety of events, including nearby day trips, weekend outings, and week-long out of state trips. Some of our typical trail rides include: Drummond Island, Silver Lake Sand Dunes, Rocks & Valleys, Bundy Hill, and West Branch/St. Helens area. Tlhe Wolverines also have a continuing tradition of a week-long W.O.W trip (Wolverines Out West) to the Ouray, Colorado area that takes place every couple years. Another favorite outing tradition that is continuing began in the late 1980's as springtime long weekend trips to the former Tellico OHV area with the old Smoky Mountain Trek/Venture events, and now takes place as a Memorial Day weekend trip to one of Several ORV parks in East Tennessee, including Coal Creek/Windrock OHV Area and the Royal Blue Wildlife Management area. The Wolverine 4-Wheelers have also been active within the community, contributing and participating in local charities including an annual trip to the Gleaners Food Bank.

    The club has been a longtime standing member of GLFWDA, and have decided to rejoin after a few years away due to the continued changing of the off-road vehicle landscape, and the need for local clubs and organizations to be building together towards a common cause.
