INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Minn. (AP) — Snowmobile trails and ice roads are closing in Voyageurs National Park in northern Minnesota, because of the warm weather.

The National Park Service says the warm temperatures and recent rainfall have caused significant deterioration to trails and ice roads in the park along the U.S.-Canadian border.

Ice road and snowmobile and ski trail maintenance has ended for the season in Voyageurs. Trail markers are being removed this week, and snowmobile travel is no longer recommended.

The Kabetogama Lake ice road is closing Tuesday. The Rainy Lake ice road will close sometime between Tuesday and Friday.
