We are happy to announce that we have 4 trail portions open to the public!
Segment 10 is complete, as well as a huge portion of segment 9. The map below details access points for 9 and 10, as Sandy Beach County Park is closed for the season as of October 11. Please park at the Hardy Marina trailhead through April 30. The trail is bordered by several private properties and roadways, please stay on the trail at all times. Once you reach the end of the completed trail on segment 9, turn back.
A portion of segment 4 is also open. The Brower Loop, a nearly 1.5 mile section of the trail, was recently completed. Enter Brower Park and park at the upper lot for boat trailer parking. You’ll find the start of the loop just on the other side of the amphitheater. See the second map below.
Lastly, a portion of segment 2 is open in Newaygo State Park. A Recreational Passport is required for entrance into the park. The trail begins at the boat launch parking lot driveway and goes approximately one-half mile in each direction.
