Holly Oaks ORV Park 2023

Holly Oaks ORV Park review, pics, video and info. Holly Oaks ORV Park is an all new off-road vehicle park located off Dixie Hwy at the Mt Holly entrance in Holly, MI. The park is operated and maintained by Oakland County Parks & Recreation.

The Michigan DNR wanted to offer an opportunity for legal, public off-road vehicle recreation in the Metro Detroit area, and this is definitely it!

The ORV Park just opened on September 17, 2020 and currently offers approximately 113 acres of ORV trails obstacles. It is expected that by 2023, the full 235 acres will be operational. The park was built based on the recommendations made by ORV users with decades of experience who took a long look at land to be used for the park and proposed a series of Adventure Areas highlighting a variety of riding experiences “from the mild to the wild.”

Each Adventure Area is uniquely themed and is built according to the landscape left behind by the site’s previous miners. Most of the areas are designated as “Pick Your Own Adventure.” Basically, there are many options to choose from. So, as you enter the park, you’re free to explore and choose the path that you want to ride. It’s all a big open space of different adventures. There are steep hill climbs, rubble crawls, a Shotcrete crawl (25,000 square feet of shotcrete applied to the top of Mt. Magna and sculpted to simulate rock forms), gravel hills, log climbs, flooded trails, and more. A 2-mile Endurance Trail has also been added so riders can circumnavigate the site through the landscape, like a roller coaster off the rails. OCM had the opportunity to give the park a try and it is the real deal. If you’re a fan of off-roading, this is a dream come true and offers more levels and adventures in one massive area than you could ever imagine or hope for.
