The Department of Natural Resources and Environment recently announced that a three-mile section of the Fred Meijer White Pine Trail in Kent County is closed due to mud slides and washouts from the recent storms. The closed area extends from Belmont Avenue east of Belmont to House Street, which is southwest of the City of Rockford in Plainfield Township. The 92-mile trail extends from Grand Rapids to Cadillac and at this time there is no alternate route on the linear state park trail. All visitors, including mountain bikers, pedestrians and rollerbladers are asked to plan their routes accordingly to avoid this section of the trail. This segment of the trail will remain closed until repairs are complete. Updates and additional information can be obtained by contacting the Mitchell State Park and White Pine Trail Supervisor Larry Solce at (231) 775-7911.
