Default Trail closure and land use petition

A Message to All Recreational Trail Users

If you want to preserve access to trails, you need to act today! In the Keweenaw, trails are being blocked. For example, one landowner repeatedly blocks the trail and another has had barriers in place for over two years and the State is reluctant to remove the barriers. A case is currently pending in the courts, yet the State is reluctant to act on this litigation. If these are not resolved, it will set a precedent that landowners can successfully block trails owned and managed by the state and will affect the entire network of trails across the State, and soon there will be no trails. Call, write, and email your local representatives and the people on this list and insist that the state take swift, aggressive action.
