Snowmobile Trail No. 614 (Mason and western Lake counties)

A portion of Snowmobile Trail No. 614 in Mason and western Lake counties remains closed for the 2017-18 snowmobile season. It has been determined that three bridges along the trail are structurally unsafe and the trail base has degraded due to higher-than-normal water levels.

The trail, known as “Bear Swamp" and located east of Freesoil, will be open to businesses near Big Bass Lake, but will be closed to the west. The area will be signed appropriately to ensure snowmobilers are aware of the closure.

The DNR and the U.S. Forest Service currently are in the process of determining a safe alternative route.
