If you were in a desert dying of thirst and found water, you would call it an oasis. If you live in one of the major metro areas of the Great Lakes and found a place to go wheel, you would call it Holly Oaks! Just north of Detroit, Holly Oaks provides a wide range of 4x4 opportunities from mild to wild. The Lower Main Loop is perfect for everyone because you can keep it mellow or tackle Mt. Magna! While you are at it, check in to earn your Jeep Badge of Honor!
Perched on a 106-acre former sand and gravel mine, the Lower Main Loop tracks around the outside border of the main south/southeast part of the Holly Oaks ORV Park and connects with countless other trails. Lower Main Loop has many obstacles, including steep hills, water crossings, deep mud pits, rock crawls, and a purpose-designed concrete peak covering 9,000 square feet. The center of the park does feature an access road called The Haul Road that any vehicle can easily travel if any of the other routes are above your abilities, but a stock, 4-wheel drive is needed to travel the Lower Main Loop. Holly Oaks ORV Park is open to all types of OHVs, including 4x4s, ATVs, side-by-sides, and dirt bikes. Open riding hours and days change seasonally, so be sure to visit the Oakland County Parks website to view the riding schedule.
A dune-style flag is required to ride in the park.
Additional Permits Needed
DNR ORV and ORV Trail stickers are required. You can purchase them at the park or at dozens of locations in/around Oakland County. Visit the DNR's website for a map of locations near you.
