An innovative trail partnership that will connect two regional trail networks through the creation of a 45+ mile non-motorized, multi-use trail.

TART Trails and Top of Michigan Trails Council, together with Networks Northwest and in cooperation with local units of government, are collaborating to close the 45+ mile gap between the Little Traverse Wheelway and the TART trail networks, traversing through Acme, Elk Rapids, Eastport, Norwood, and Charlevoix. The project team is working closely with local units of government, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Michigan Department of Transportation, community stakeholders and landowners on the trail design, ownership and maintenance plans.
