The Chain of Lakes Water Trail has been a vision of many for some time now, and the five year effort to complete it is now over.
On Wednesday, people gathered for the ribbon cutting ceremony that officially opened the water trails for recreational use.
There are 100 miles of lakes and connecting rivers that complete the water trail out to Lake Michigan.
“So we are really excited about the water trail. This is an effort that we have been working on for the past five years. So the trail as I mentioned is one hundred miles and it includes nineteen different governmental partners in four different counties that came together to create the trail,” said Deana Jerdee, Executive Director of Paddle Antrim.
The water trail begins in Ellsworth Community Park.
