April is the end of snowmobile trail season


Starting today, Michigan’s designated snowmobiling trails are closed for the season.

“This is the date our trails close, as grooming contracts and private land agreements expire,” said Ron Yesney, DNR U.P. trails coordinator.

Snowmobilers can continue riding on state land, but the trail system depends on connecting across private landowners areas.

“As late-winter temperatures begin to rise, riding conditions can become very unpredictable, leading to unsafe situations or poor to very little snow,” said Ron Olson, DNR Parks and Recreation Division chief.

For those continuing to ride, remember to Ride Right to bring everyone back home safe.

The winter 2019 to 2020 season will open on December 1st.
