From Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative
Across the county, we are preparing for a productive season of trail expansion! Tree clearing and subsequent clean-ups are in progress on the western side of the county and preparations are being made for trail improvements on trail segments in Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor. We look forward to sharing details with you as construction plans are finalized and timelines are projected. It’s going to be a great year for the B2B in every corner of the county!
Seasonal initiatives continue along the B2B Trail as we enjoy the longer days of spring. In partnership with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MiDNR), WCPARC staff removed numerous invasive plants and shrubs to improve sight lines around the 90-degree turn of the Chelsea-Stockbridge Corridor by M-52 and along the trail near Green Lake. This work has given trail users an improved view of the small pond just north of the pedestrian tunnel.
Check out this documentary video highlighting trails across the state of Michigan! Jeff Hardcastle, HWPI Board Chair, is interviewed at 07:16. He discusses how the generous financial contributions of the Ralph Wilson Foundation, in addition to state and private support, have built miles of Border to Border Trail System projects over the last three years. Take this tour of Michigan trails and learn about how they are connecting communities across the state!
