Note to all who are using the ATV/UTV trails: We received a notice from MI-TRALE on October 17, 2017 about a section of the Pioneer Multi-Use Recreational Trail. Due to construction and the use of heavy equipment, the Pioneer multi-use recreational trail remains closed for safety concerns between Norwich Road and the Victoria Cutoff. There are signs posted for a detour that should be used instead. There are major improvements underway on this section of the trail that will provide a safer ride for all users. MI-TRALE requests that you use the detour until the trail is reopened. Your cooperation is appreciated, and we want you to enjoy safe riding.
