The Department of Natural Resources’ Parks and Recreation Division today reminded snowmobilers of the recommended 4-inch minimum snow base for snowmobile travel on the Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park. The snow base is critical for protecting the asphalt surface on the approximately 35 miles of paved trail open for snowmobiling. The recommended 4-inch minimum snow depth is the most important technique being implemented to reduce the wear.
The Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park is a 92-mile, multi-use trail that runs from Cadillac in the north, to Comstock Park in the south. The trail is open to snowmobile use north of Russell Road in Kent County.
For details or questions, contact Christopher Stark, unit supervisor, Mitchell State Park/Fred Meijer White Pine Trail, 231-775-7911.
