“Michigan's First Rails to Trails: Celebrating 50 Years”

Episode #1702

In 1969 there were no Rail Trails in Michigan until the folks in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula banded together to make the old Superior Railroad line into the first one and by 1970 it was a reality. 2020 is the 50th anniversary and we will bike, ATV, snowmobile, and ride on horseback to discover the beauty and history traveling from Lake Superior to Lake Michigan on Michigan’s first Rails to Trails.
