Seasonal closure of Trail 417 begins

Effective immediately, the City of Marquette has closed the two-track leading to Morgan Falls from County Road 553 to motorized vehicles. Motorized vehicles are not allowed in this area from April 1 through December 1 annually.

Motorized vehicles are not permitted off-road within City limits. Gates that will allow non-motorized traffic have been installed at this intersection in conjunction with the SEMCO pipeline installation. In addition to protecting the pipeline infrastructure, there has historically been substantial littering and dumping from this trail along the Carp River.

Public wishing to access the falls can still do so through non-motorized means. Parking for use of the entire trails system is available at the NTN trailhead.

Those wishing to use ORV trails are encouraged to contact the DNR regarding the newly approved ORV trail system through the west end of the Heartwood property.
