MUNISING, Mich. (AP) - A snowmobile trail for Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is closed and officials are trying to find a replacement route.

The state Department of Natural Resources says the 13-mile Snowmobile Trail No. 422 from Trail No. 8 to Miners Castle is shut for the 2016 season.

The DNR says permission wasn’t granted to use the Alger County route as a groomed trail. The DNR and others are working on finding an alternative route for future seasons.

Although the trail is closed, the DNR says there are hundreds of miles of trails available to ride that connect to other scenic sights and many nearby communities including Munising, Grand Marias, Seney, Manistique and Marquette.
