    Default Drummond Route is APPROVED!

    Drummond Island

    Itís Official!

    The Great Lakes Four Wheel Drive Association (GLFWDA) is proud to announce that the
    Drummond Island ORV Route has been approved!


    It has taken several long years and countless man-hours supplied by scores of diligent volunteers, but the process has finally come to fruition. The MDNR has announced the official designation of the Drummond Island ORV Route system. This is Michiganís FIRST ORV Route designed for the 4x4 Jeep, truck, and utility vehicle enthusiast.

    GLFWDA would like to thank our coalition partners:

    Drummond Island Off Road Club, Drummond Island Tourist Association, Eastern U. P. Transit Authority, Hummer Club International, Jeep Jamboree USA, and all of the dedicated individuals within the Michigan Department of Natural Resources for all of their assistance and support during this long process.


    BE A PART OF HISTORY

    GLFWDA invites ALL Michigan 4x4 enthusiasts to join us on Drummond the weekend of MAY 9th, 2009 to assist the Association with the installation of the confidence markers and signage for the new Route system. It is critically important that the recreational 4x4 drivers of the region show the Department, island businesses, and island residents that this route is highly desirable to enthusiasts by showing up in mass. Please wear/display your club or GLFWDA logos if at all possible. Plans are being finalized for a Saturday evening gathering after the work is completed. More information will be announced as it becomes available. Please join us!


    Make your reservations TODAY!


    These are the lodging facilities on the Island that helped to make our Route a reality.

    Great news! Might be able to make the date. Would like to come if possible.

    So, let me ask a couple questions that most are dieing to hear. Marblehead is open as mentioned. What about other 4x4 challenges? In the past, our ORV routes around the state have been pretty mundane 2 tracks. The rumor mill has been that this will be something different where 4 wheel drive is not only allowed but will be needed in certain areas. Can you expand?

    Thanks to those that do all the hard work.
