Manistee County Snowmobiling

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has announced a temporary closure along Snowmobile Trail No. 6 in Manistee County.
Ice damming has caused the Pine River to flood in the area of Low Bridge (south of M-55 and west of M-37 in Norman Township) on Snowmobile Trail No. 6. It's predicted that temperatures will rise, causing additional snow melt and rising water levels.
The trail will be closed until the flooding has subsided. The closure is expected to last through next week. Snowmobile club members will inspect the crossing daily, and it will reopen when safe for use.
There are no designated reroutes available, due to limited crossings across the Pine River. The closure is signed and barricaded.
Updates on this closure and information on additional closures and trail detours in DNR facilities, including state trails, boat launches, parks and campgrounds, are available at Michigan.gov/DNRClosures.
Questions about the trail closure may be directed to Scott Slavin, Cadillac District recreational trails specialist, at 231-878-9403
