T.A.R.T. Trail System: ‘Get Plowed’ & Help Bridge Winter Funding Gaps

Traverse City’s T.A.R.T. Trail System is working to raise money to keep its trails clear through the winter.

Trail administrators say T.A.R.T’s ‘Get Plowed’ campaign will help to fund the ongoing work using private donations.

It’s partnering with a number of local restaurants and breweries who are raising money by selling ‘Get Plowed’ coasters and then matching those donations.

The Little Fleet, Red Mesa Grill, North Peak Brewing, Right Brain Brewing and The Workshop Brewing Company have all joined the effort.

“The T.A.R.T Trails are vital to a lot of people–it’s the most well known trail in the area to get around,” said Jesse Jason of The Little Fleet. “Bikes, cross-country skiing, walking and really, we just want to help out the community.”

T.A.R.T. aims to raise $3,500 in total.

The drive runs through Sunday, February 8th.
