Mullet Lake Trail Will Be Open to Snowmobilers Next Winter (Cheboygan County)Next winter snowmobilers will be able to ride around a once restricted area. Thursday the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Board voted to remove the motorized traffic restriction from the Mullett Lake portion of the West Mullett Lake Trail. The twelve mile portion of the trail stretches from Gaylord to Cheboygan. Governor Granholm said Thursday's action could provide an economic boost to this area. The DNR expressed safety concerns about opening he entire trail to snowmobilers because it crosses within close proximity of several residences and driveways. But a tentative meeting has been set for late July to discuss the possibility of opening more of the trail for motorized traffic.
