Traverse City - Charlevoix - TRAIL - Get Connected

Project Updates


  • Preliminary design between Acme and Elk Rapids continues to move forward following an open house in August over 200 people attended and a public comment period that generated over 200 responses from people who shared their ideas and preferences on trail design. The next step has the engineering firm, Prein & Newhof, completing an engineering assessment for the different proposed route options, which will identify the physical challenges and opportunities that each alternate route represents. Once complete, all of the public input will be combined with the assessment and different potential trail scenarios and routes will be made public for further review. While the public comment period has closed, communication on the project can still be directed to
