It has been part of the trail system since the 1970s on a railroad spur that has been located in the Manistee National Forest since the 1920s.
It has also served as a way for all the local cabin owners to connect to the marked groomed trail system.
So if you like to read, the new Environmental Assessment (EA) has just been completed and will be made available at the following link.
fed.us/r9/hmnf/pages/snowmobile Trail 614 The Snowmobile Trail # 614 Project EA describes three alternatives, they include the following; Alternative 1: Maintain the current level of activity for the area (No Action) Alternative 2: The Proposed Action that was described during the second scoping period.
HASLETT, MI, February 13, 2018: This has been another busy couple of months at the ISMA office.
Snow has fallen, and the trails are groomed for great riding.
Ed Klim President International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association 1640 Haslett Road, Suite 170 Haslett, MI 48840 517-339-7788 office 517-881-1498 cell ANNUAL I. Our President Jeff Goss, asked Deak for some information on how they do their ride-In.
Deak hit it off right away and said, I can show you, but will have a hard time explain it to you. The ISA treated the MSA folks like kings, helping us understand all of the different facets of all the games, we heard from the mind of Deak lots of times. Even, I can’t explain it but there are games within games, something for the leisure rider to the high mileage rider.
So, just to recap; You support Alternative #2, that reroute will insure a safe snowmobile route for you to gain access to the cities and towns in the surrounding area for fuel and services.
Cash prizes were awarded for the winners of all the categories.
I know there was more games involved, so if you want real excitement from riding your sled and playing the games, you need to book next year’s MSA-ISA Ride IN SAFETY FIRST / SPEED LAST The Future of Trail 614 Is Looking a little Brighter Forest Service Still Wants Snowmobilers out of the Bear Creek Swamp, but the Alternative # 2 would be a great trail, not on plowed roads or in front of residences.
It will complete a route around the Bear Creek Swamp and complete trail 614, making it better for access for emergency service.
REMEMBER- We need comments before the deadline of 1/13/18 SNOWMOBILE ISSUES MSA has had many calls about trespassing over the last weekend, December 15-16-17.
Remember this story from December 2016-Yes one whole year ago!
