Tittabawassee River Trail Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting


Freeland, Michigan (6/13/24) – The Great Lakes Bay Regional Trail (GLBRT), in collaboration with Tittabawassee Township and the Tittabawassee River Natural Resource Damage Assessment and Restoration (NRDAR) Trustees, are excited to announce a ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration for the Tittabawassee River Trail. The event will take place on Friday June 28th, 2024, beginning at 11:30 AM at Hayes Park in Freeland – 9200 Midland Rd. Freeland, MI 48623.

The grand opening will begin with comments from local officials welcoming the newest trail segment in Saginaw County, which extends to the Midland County line - a key connection in the GLBRT’s vision of a more than 100-mile trail network across our region. After comments, attendees will walk, bike, run or roll a ½ mile down the trail where the ribbon cutting will take place. Lunch and refreshments will be provided at Hayes Park courtesy of Jolt Credit Union.

The Tittabawassee River Trail is a beautiful 2.5-mile trail segment that follows the eastern banks of the Tittabawassee River, providing unique viewsheds and opportunities for wildlife observation. The trail features a fourteen-hundred-foot boardwalk, one of the largest in the region. Continued habitat restoration planned in this corridor will restore critical wildlife habitat while also supporting public access and recreation.
