    Trail news for snowmobilers from the Michigan DNR
    Posted by MDNR-UP on Monday, November 27, 2017 11:21 AM

    The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says snowmobilers are essential to the survival of its snowmobile program throughout the state. The $48 trail permit paid by snowmobilers goes directly back into funding signage, bridges, culverts, grading, purchases of new equipment, insurance, trailhead maintenance, leases and more. One trail permit fee pays for 9.4 miles of trail to be groomed just once. Thank you, riders for your support of snowmobiling in Michigan!

    The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is reminding snowmobilers to shine a positive light on this great sport. More than half of the state’s designated snowmobile trails are located on private land, at the sole discretion of the landowners. In recent years, about 400 miles of trail closures have occurred on private land because of riders not staying on the trail and machines with loud exhaust pipes. Please respect the rules, respect private property, ride responsibly and enjoy the ride.
