The Department of Natural Resources announced today that a section of snowmobile trail in Montmorency County, Trail 4/9, will be rerouted. This section of trail is located south of Atlanta. The proposed trail reroute will move snowmobiles off County Road 487/Morningstar Lake Road and onto Airport Road/South Airport Road, and then on to existing state land to connect with the current snowmobile route.
The purpose of this reroute is to reduce snowmobile-vehicle encounters, thereby increasing the safety for all motorized traffic in the area. The reroute will be completed prior to the start of the 2011-2012 snowmobile season. If you have questions regarding this reroute, please contact the Atlanta Field Office at 989-785-4251.
Information regarding the snowmobile program may be found on the DNR website at www.michigan.gov/snowmobiling, under Outdoor Recreation.
