    I've being viewing this area close to Thunder Beach near Midland on BackRoad Map Books and notice the many lanes intersecting the area between roads. I'm curious as to whether these lanes can be ridden or are they private?

    Is there anyone who knows this area or has ridden there?

    Here is a screenshot

    Hi Hardy,

    Have not been through there recently but an early odsc ride in about 2001 did visit that area. I recall leaving the shore road at the top middle of your pic and emerging on a road after some sketchy and muddy tracks. That is the only help i can be .

    Google earth might be useful as well.

    Hi Phil

    I did check Google earth and it seems that the North Shore rd will connect to the West Shore rd through a trail of sorts. The many other lanes indicated on BRMP are not completely clear on Google earth (they seam to kind of fade out as you follow them through).

    I'm wondering if this area is part of Simcoe County as I will check out their map?

    Thanks for the info.
    Hardy
