How you can make a financial contribution
While we have made great strides in raising much-needed funds to kick off the trail section work, our total fundraising goal is still quite a ways off. Please consider making a generous gift today! Reach out to our fundraising team at email@example.com or click here to make a donation online.
Michigan’s Dragon at Hardy Dam has received several donations from early Trail Partners and by securing a number of grants. To date, $1,436,000 in donations and grant funding has been secured for the project. These funds are being utilized to complete a variety of project requirements, with trail construction being the top priority.
A project of this size cannot happen without dedicated volunteers. The West Michigan Mountain Biking Alliance (WMMBA) has stepped up to support and coordinate trail volunteers. The WMMBA will be responsible for routine trail inspections and maintenance. WMMBA is developing a comprehensive volunteer program, matching experienced volunteers with developing volunteers to keep the trail in optimum condition. In addition, the WMMBA volunteers are highly skilled with trail maintenance and will assist Newaygo and Mecosta Counties with routine maintenance and repairs of the trail. The WMMBA is overseeing all volunteer patrols and maintenance on the trail.
