Open house focuses on Cheboygan Gaylord trail|
Michigan Department of Natural Resources officials today announced a Feb. 6 meeting to provide information and gather public comment on proposed uses of the recreational trail between Cheboygan and Gaylord.
While the Cheboygan Gaylord trail offers both non-motorized and qualified motorized access, the Mullett Lake portion of the trail has been closed to snowmobile use since its acquisition. The DNR has received a growing number of requests from users, businesses and individuals to review and consider trail usage issues.
The meeting, from 7-9 p.m. at the Tuscarora Township Hall in Indian River, is open to all interested citizens. DNR staff will field questions, announce the formation of the Cheboygan Gaylord Advisory Council, and take recommendations for council membership. The Council will review trail issues and provide recommendations to the department. Council members will include local homeowners, businesses, government representatives, and statewide trail users.
“We are hopeful that everyone interested in the Cheboygan Gaylord trail will attend this meeting to share their perspectives on trail usage,” said DNR Trails Specialist Matt Hare. “The advisory council will work to generate recommendations to the department by this summer on management issues including usage, easements, and improvements. We would like as much input as possible as we examine future use and development throughout this valuable recreational corridor.”
The Tuscarora Township Hall is located at 3546 S. Straits Highway in Indian River. For more information, call Matt Hare at 517-335-1096.
