Closure of major snowmobile trail avoided

The closure of Trail #4 has been avoided.

The shutdown of a major Otsego County snowmobile trail has been avoided.

There were fears that Trail #4, which runs from Old 27 in Gaylord all the way to Lakes of the North in Antrim County, would be closed.

However, the DNR and local snowmobile clubs have been working to resolve the issue.

They have worked out leasing agreements with homeowners along the 27-mile trail.
