On October 1, WATCH hosted “Tour the Trail.” Thirty brave souls, undaunted by the 38-degree temperature, hiked, ran, biked, or rode a portion of the planned Lake to Lake Multi-Use Trail.
WATCH provided a trail-head tent at Ferry Rd. on M66 and treated the explorers to hot drinks, snacks, and a bit of humor. Golf carts with drivers, provided by the Belvedere Golf Club, awaited those who wanted to tour the trail in leisure. Bikes from Chet’s Revolution Bike & Boards, were available for those who needed them. And Mike Spencer, Charlevoix City Planner, did a bit of last minute trail maintenance by removing a tree that had fallen across the trail.
Take a look at the slide show below and you’ll appreciate the beautiful area the trail will go through on its way from Lake Charlevoix to Lake Michigan.
