Erosion Closes Charlevoix County Bike Trail

Erosion from high lake levels in Charlevoix has caused part of a bike trail to fall apart.

The Parks and Planning Department says a portion of the Little Traverse Wheelway in Charlevoix County could remain closed until the spring.

In addition to repairs, they say it could require building a rip rap to prevent the issue in the future.

Repair estimates are between $75,000 and $100,000.

They encourage cyclists to be aware of their environment while out riding.
