Nothing is better than a walk, bike ride, (or even winter snowshoe outing) along a scenic, natural trail.  Unless, of course, that trail is connected to miles upon miles of other trails, all ripe for the exploring.  That's why a huge part of our mission is not only to forge new paths, but to connect existing ones - bringing together the people and the places we love.

You can read below to learn more about our existing trails and our efforts to connect them, or read our entire Linking The Trails Plan here

Trail Etiquette 

Leave No Trace

Help to preserve the natural beauty of our trails by "Leaving No Trace".  Do not leave or take anything from the areas you pass through so that others can enjoy our area's beauty as well! 

Yield to Others

In order to maintain safety on our trails, please yield to others as you walk, run, bike, and skate.  For your own safety hug the right-hand side of the trail except to pass.  When passing please alert others by saying "passing on your left".  In this way all can enjoy the trails! 

Safety First

Be Prepared

Whether you are walking, running, or biking, be sure to prepare for your adventure with ample hydration and food.  Prepare for your trip by reviewing the trail maps found above, notifying someone of your plans, and wearing appropriate gear for safety and health! 

Trail Conditions

Prior to using a trail, please evaluate the conditions for safety concerns.  Michigan weather can pose a threat to you as well as our trails.  Be sure to know your route in case you encounter poor trail conditions, and then be sure to let us know!

Report a Concern

Have a concern about one of the trails or the etiquette on them?  Use our contact page to report your concern!  Down power lines, trail weathering concerns, or incident reports are helpful to further protect our trails and the communities that use them!
