Snyder wants to create trail from Detroit to Ironwood
LANSING, MI (AP)-- Michigan Governor Rick Snyder says the state will work to create a 599-mile hiking and biking trail stretching from Belle Isle Park in Detroit to Ironwood in the Western U.P.
Snyder's proposal would build on existing trails. He's directing the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to work with private and nonprofit partners to make the full route a reality.
The Detroit Free Press says the project would need 81.5 miles of new trails in the Lower Peninsula and 152 miles in the Upper Peninsula.
In an address on energy and the environment Wednesday, Snyder said Michigan could one day be known as the Trail State. He says the Detroit-to-Ironwood project would create a "signature" experience.
