Little Traverse Wheelway Bike Trail in Petoskey Closed Temporarily

With upcoming street and road improvements, part of a popular bike trail in Petoskey will be closed for the next several weeks.

The Little Traverse Wheelway from Ingalls Road to Magnus Park will be closed while the city works on the adjacent streets.

Cyclists who want to venture out at this time of the year will be redirected from the trail up towards the street.

When the ongoing work on the street is completed, the trail will be moved from the sidewalk to a separate trail, making it safer.

“It’s going to be a short-term inconvenience for a nice long term benefit. It’s going to get the trail users off the street they are going have their own dedicated, non-motorized trail,” said Petoskey DPR director Kendall Klingelsmith.

Road work will begin when the weather clears up, and it could take 4 to 6 weeks to complete.
