12.22.14: DNR upgrades Kalkaska County recreational trail
KALKASKA, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says improvements have been completed along the Kalkaska Route, which includes Snowmobile Trail No. 79 in northeastern Kalkaska County.
Improvements to the dual-use recreational trail include constructing 0.5 miles of new trail and installing a bridge over Goose Creek.
The DNR says the project was necessary to replace a narrow and structurally deficient bridge and to move the trail into the woods away from vehicular traffic on a county road.
The project was funded using grants from the recreational trails, off-road vehicle and snowmobile programs.
More information about off-road vehicle and snowmobile trails in Michigan is available on the state’s website.
