Snowmobile trails from Twin Lakes to Copper Harbor are open and trails are in good to very good condition with a base ranging from 12-24 inches. The mat on the Portage Lift Bridge is down. There are some water holes near Canal Road in Houghton.
Trail 122 is closed for logging. You can still access the Dreamland trail from Lake Linden but DO NOT go beyond. You can take Trail 124 to get to Gay.
Remember when you’re out on the trails to watch out for the groomers. They have the right away. Use caution around logging areas.
