I'm not a whole lot of help on specifics. I LOVE going to the UP in the fall. Wife and I usually go in October. There are unpaved "roads" all over. Many are no more than two tracks through the woods with a piece of wood nailed to a tree as a "street sign." I usually try and find something unusual to drive and see. Something most people wouldn't be able to because their car wouldn't make it or they don't want to get the Jeep dirty.
We went out to the Keweenaw Rocket Range last time. There are some lighthouses west of Whitefish Point that are only accessible by off road vehicle. Speaking of Whitefish Point, go there. There is a lighthouse and the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum. It's not huge, but lots of neat stuff, including the bell from the Edmund Fitzgerald.
There's UPOverland.org, but it's not very active. Probably best to go over to Expedition Portal and go to the regional sections (or just search around) to find info. I know Great Lakes Xterras was planning an overland trip through the UP a few years ago, but I don't think it ever happened.
I just got on google and google earth and started searching around, then mapped out the routes.
