Alger County Commissioners Meeting

June 10 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has announced that as of December 2024, Snowmobile Trail No. 422 from Trail No. 8 to Miners Castle near Munising in Alger County will be closed for the upcoming season.

This is due to the discontinuation of permission by the Alger County Road Commission to use a portion of Alger County Highway 58 (H-58) as a groomed trail to access Miners Castle. The DNR and the local grooming club have tried to keep the trail open for the upcoming snowmobiling season but have been unsuccessful. Various partners and DNR staff have diligently worked on an alternate route, but their efforts have been unsuccessful.
