Trail Clearing Taking Place Near Parks Administration Office

If you’ve driven past our office this week, you might have noticed machinery and equipment along the edge of the woods and Ranger side parking lot.  We are beginning clearing for a new segment of trail being funded by a combination of Michigan DNR and Transportation Alternative Plan grants that will connect the existing Bluegill Boat Launch section of the regional Flint River Trail and statewide Iron Belle Trail through to Vassar Road and eventually Richfield County Park.  Please use caution if you’re in this area and obey “Area Closed” signs when you see them.
