Traverse City - Charlevoix - TRAIL - Get Connected

2015 Concept: Charlevoix Township Segment

This segment connects Fisherman’s Island State Park to the recently completed Lake to Lake Trail via a shared-use path along Belles Bay Road. A separate path is planned here to reduce interactions with truck traffic associated with St. Mary’s Cement, and will be coordinated with the Road Commission, MDNR and St. Mary’s Cement.
