Northern Michigan Attractions: Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail

Northern Michigan Attractions: Get ready to experience the Sleeping Bear Dunes in a whole new way. This Saturday, August 12 at 11:00 am, there will be a  groundbreaking ceremony for an exciting new project that will extend the new Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail trail between the Sleeping Bear Dune climb all the way into Glen Arbor giving people unprecedented access into the stunning natural wonder, recently featured on Good Morning America.

The family-friendly, Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail will allow those on foot or wheel to traverse the 5-mile distance from the Sleeping Bear dune climb into Glen Arbor, also providing visitors with the opportunity to stop at other notable park stops.

After the groundbreaking ceremony this Saturday, construction of the trail will commence, finishing next year. Five years of planning for this trail will finally come into fruition, thanks to overwhelming community support. Campaign Tri-Chair, Karen Van Nort is excited about the groundbreaking, “We are thrilled that families will have a safe place to ride their bicycles.  We hope the public will join us as we kick-off this legacy trail.”

Who knew one of the most spectacular natural features on the planet could become even more special?
