Phase 1: In 2017, a 2.5 mile long 10 foot wide non-motorized path was constructed by the Michigan Department of Transportation.  The pathway stretches from the existing path in front of Burt Watson Chevrolet and travels south on the east side of M-47 to the backyard of the Freeland SportsZone.  The path terminates at the new Strike Zone Pavilion located next to the ball diamonds. Please view our 2016 winter newsletter for more information.

Phase 2: In 2020, 2.69 mile long multi-use path was constructed. The pathway begins at the termination of Phase 1, near the Strike Zone Pavilion, and runs eastwardly to terminate at Hospital Road where it is to connect to the proposed Kochville Township Path. This extension links us to the greater Great Lakes Bay Regional Trail.

Funding: With non-motorized trails becoming a key feature of growing communities, funding for these projects has expanded greatly throughout the years. Phase 1 was funded by Federal Grants, State Grants, and Township Funds. Phase 2 was funded by the MDNR Natural Resource Trust Fund, Great Lakes Bay Regional Trail Alliance, Iron Belle Trail Foundation, and Tittabawassee Township.

What does that sign mean? This is a great critical thinking activity for kids. On your walk or bike ride, have your child tell you what certain sign mean. Pedestrian crossing, stop, and wayfinding signage are all important items to teach at a young age?
