The Great Lake to Lake trail opened this week and now connects the city of South Haven on Lake Michigan to Port Huron. 18 separate trails are connected and the route travels through 9 counties. A large group of riders left on September 12th from South Haven and arrived in Port Huron this past week. When the group arrived in Port Huron they were greeted by a newly finished area marking one end of the trail.
The City of Port Huron set a large Red buoy to mark the end, and in South Haven, a Green buoy is positioned there. Port Huron City Manager James Freed said the city is excited about the new Great Lake to Lake Trail. He went on to say that there will be many enhancements in coming years to increase bike lanes and trails in Port Huron. Freed said the goal is to create a more bike-friendly community.
