they do the same crap here in minnesota. paved trails and studs are no good. If they keep the ban just to the paved portion we will be ok. But they need to not pave snowmobile trails and just make those people their own trail and make them pay a fee to use it. This is a loose loose situation for the sledders

It is a marked snomobile trail who buys expensive permits to use it
before and after it was paved with sled freindly asphalt ?
the permitless bicylists are complaining, they want the rail road
clinkers back, that is classic when a SNOWMOBILE trail has
donations to pave it

I saw them paving the RR bed between Reed City and Farwell a couple weeks ago and I was like WTF?? I guess if the bikers and hikers can keep coming up with the money to pave all these trails then myself and alot of others will ride somewhere else. Wonder how much the bikers and hikers will pump into these towns in the winter?

I am guessing that our trail permit dollars just go for grooming the trail. I would like to know for sure if that money is being used to pave these trails....If so, we have a huge bitch.

Snowmobile $$ is not used to pave trails. Permit money is not even used to repair road crossings, that comes from the gas tax money. In some cases they are however paving trails that were acquired with snowmobile resources - I am pretty sure, just can't put my fingers on the info yet. I will look over the weekend if I get time.

Last summer when They were paving from Cadillac South. I was talking to Larry from the DNRE and He said all the new pavement is studproof. That's why They were doing swaths across the intersections.
