The Department of Natural Resources today*announced*that improvements*have been completed along the*Kalkaska Route, which includes Snowmobile Trail #79 in northeastern Kalkaska County.

Improvements on this dual-use recreational trail include constructing 0.5 miles of new trail and installing a new bridge over Goose Creek. The project was necessary to replace a formerly narrow and structurally deficient bridge and to*move the trail into the woods away from vehicular traffic on Kalkaska County Road 612.*

“The new trail and bridge provide a much safer, more enjoyable motorized recreational experience for our users,” said Todd Neiss, DNR parks and recreation trail specialist.


The project was funded using grants from the Recreational Trails, Off-Road Vehicle and Snowmobile programs.*
