More than ever, trails matter. This year is going to be so important for trail associations across the state. With more traffic than ever before, funding shortfalls, and some ambitious trail projects on the books, trail users need to understand what trail associations do to create, maintain, and protect these natural spaces.
Over the next several weeks, we’ll be highlighting some of our affiliate chapters to help put a name and a face to the people behind some of Michigan’s favorite trails. From every corner of the state and every size of membership, these are the folks that bring our trails to life!
Organization: Thunder Bay Trail Association
Marquee Trails: Norway Ridge, Chippewa Hills, Rockport
