We love going on trails and adventures in our Jeep. One way to get outdoors and visit some great trails across the U.S. is through the Jeep Badge of Honor program

Jeep has done a great job of collecting trails across the nation to explore. All you need to do is download the Jeep Badge of Honor program app to see trail maps, information, highlights, difficulty ratings, and user photos. The app is also how you check-in to the trail. The Jeep specifically creates these badges to reward those who successfully check-in and complete a trail.

Trails we completed in the Jeep Badge of Honor program

South Marble Head Loop on Drummond Island was our first trail in the Jeep Badge of Honor program

South Marble Head Loop on Drummond Island

  • Drummond Island Ferry is a one-mile ride to the island across the St. Mary’s River.
  • DeTour, MI  is at the eastern end of the Upper Peninsula.
  • We purchased the required Michigan ORV and trail permits for $36.25 from Johnson’s Sport Shop on the island.
  • You will encounter lots of steps, ledges, rocks, mud, views of Canada, and fun! You can get most of the way through the trail in a stock Jeep. We just didn’t do that very last obstacle. We did walk down it and see the water.
  • We camped at the Township Park for $20 per night, but there are other campgrounds as well.
  • We also ran the Fossil Ledges Trail to the northern shore of the island. This was a lot of fun because the trail was flooded and at times was deep enough to touch the bottom of the Jeep.
Fins & Things

Fins & Things in Moab, Utah

  • It’s one of many trails in the Sand Flats Recreation Area and has a $5 entry fee for the day.
  • You will encounter lots of fins, slickrock, steps, ledges, rocks, and sand.
  • We boondocked on BLM land near Moab
  • There are hundreds of miles of trails in the Moab area!
  • Make sure you listen to our first podcast for more trails and information in Utah at thefaiolas.com/1.
