First Trailhead Opens in Acme

May 18, 2019

The newly developed Bayside Park in Acme is the first official trailhead for the TC↔CHX Trail. The grand opening for the beautiful waterfront park and trailhead was held on May 18 following years of hard work spearheaded by Acme Townshipand the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy. Bayside Park, part of the Acme Shoreline effort, is a great example of the strong collaboration between state and local, public and private agencies here in northern Michigan to help support healthy and strong communities and economies. 

The trailhead features on-site restrooms and improvements such as expanded parking, new park amenities and trail connections. There are immediate plans for the trail to continue north to Elk Rapids and to M-72 and Bunker Hill.
