Charlevoix Lake to Lake Trail Receives Grant

 A Charlevoix trail system just got a large grant from MDOT and the Charlevoix Co. Community Foundation; and that will help them start construction soon.

The project has been in the works for 5 years, and is finally starting to take shape.

The Lake to Lake Trail will connect a Charlevoix trail to the Little Traverse Wheelway in Petoskey. And the city hopes to eventually have it also connect toElk Rapidss and Traverse City.  If construction goes as planned, they hope people can enjoy the trail by late fall. 

The trail will go from Fisherman’s Island State Park to Ferry Beach.

It will also connect with the Little Traverse Wheelway. That means people can get from Harbor Springs to Charlevoix. Definitely a bonus for people who love to get outdoors. 

Businesses believe it will bring more people into town, and give Charlevoix a boost they need.

9&10’s Alyssa Gambla and photojournalist Erin Malone have more details on how the community is excited for the new trail system.
