LANSING, Mich. (AP) - State officials say trails and forest roads in parts of Michigan's Lower Peninsula have been left impassable by recent heavy rain, wind and snow in places.

The state Department of Natural Resources is warning users of state-maintained pathways, off-road vehicle trails and forest roads to use caution. Parts of some trails may be closed due to excessive amounts of standing water and flood conditions, as well as downed trees.

The DNR says its staff is working to assess the hardest-hit areas, and will partner with local officials and volunteers to deal with any problems.

Trail conditions are expected to improve in the coming months.
