|The Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Top of Michigan Trails Council and TART Trails Inc. are seeking public input on a proposed section of new trail in Fisherman's Island State Park in Charlevoix County. The new section would be part of the regional Nakwema Trailway system.
The 45-mile-long, nonmotorized Nakwema Trailway links Charlevoix and Traverse City through the cooperation of various trail organizations and local and state governments.
The proposed trail segment would connect the Lake-to-Lake Trail at Bells Bay Road to the day-use area in Fisherman's Island State Park in Charlevoix. The new, approximately 6-mile trail segment would help close some of the gaps in the existing Nakwema Trailway system and provide a more contiguous experience for trail users.
To access the Zoom presentation and (following the event) the recorded presentation and survey, visit Michigan.gov/FishermansIsland.
For more information, contact Tom Copenhaver, park supervisor, at 231-582-7523 or CopenhaverT@Michigan.gov.
