At MI-131 exit 180 and MI-55 east of Cadillac, zero odometer.

0.0   MI-131 at MI-55 Go east on MI-55.
1.7   49 Road (Seeley Road, unsigned) Turn right (south).
3.7   Finkel Road on left Turn left (east).

26.4 Road changes to dirt and gets rough
        Continue straight ahead or park and walk.
26.5 Road bends to the right and tops out
        There is a pullout on the left at a campsite Park.

Hike north and northeast through the woods and along a ridge. Go over two bumps and arrive at Area #1 in 0.4 mile, slightly to the left as you top out on a northwest-southeast ridge. Go southeast 0.2 mile along this ridge to Area #2. Return the same way to avoid dropping away from your vehicle. Approximately 150 feet of gain in a little over 1 mile round trip. I guess this qualifies as a gimme county.
