Bob Wilson, May 24, 2019
Old Town, Lansing, MI — The Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance has just published a new statewide map and directory of 286 multi-use trails with support from the Michigan Department of Transportation and McLaren Health Care.
The new trails directory is now available at all Michigan Department of Transportation Welcome Centers as well as on the organization’s website, michigantrails.org/trails. The online version has links to all listed trails for additional information. The trails map was researched and designed by Michigan Trails in cooperation with cartographer Christopher J. Bessert.
“Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance has a long history of providing a detailed trails directory for trail users all over Michigan,” said Bob Wilson, Executive Director of the Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance. “This year’s version is the most significant improvement we have had in many years with much more detail, nearly a thousand more miles of trails and an easier to use layout.”
“Providing access to Michigan trails for all Michigan citizens and visitors to the Great Lakes State is an important mission for Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance,” continued Wilson. “As we continue to expand our nation’s leading trail system, the Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance’s Trails Directory will provide the gateway for that access.”
“We appreciate the opportunity to partner with MTGA on both this new trails directory and their mission of providing trails to help connect people and communities for a healthier Michigan,” said Kevin Tompkins, Senior Vice President of Marketing at McLaren Health Care. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Michigan Trails in future endeavors.”
The Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance is the statewide voice for non-motorized trail users, helping people build, connect and promote trails for a healthier and more prosperous Michigan.
