DNR set to plunge into water trails across Michigan

The Department of Natural Resources is in the process of developing a policy to include water trails – some overseen by other entities and some yet to be developed – into the state’s trail program. Water trails range from segments of inland streams to Michigan’s entire Great Lakes shoreline.

Off-road vehicle riders see trail numerous network improvements in Lower Peninsula

The northern Lower Peninsula has nearly 3,425 miles of off-road vehicle trails. For decades, the DNR and local trail groups have worked together to establish and strengthen the Lower Peninsula’s ORV trail system. In recent months, more than a dozen projects have been completed or are under way to help restore and maintain trails, bridges, trailheads and other features. This work was funded, in part, by ORV license fees.
