New Hiking and Bicycling Trail in Michigan
A new hiking and bicycling trail stretching hundreds of miles through Michigan will be called Michigan's Iron Belle Trail.
The trail will run from Belle Isle Park in Detroit to Ironwood in the western Upper Peninsula along the border with Wisconsin.
The name effectively captures the beauty and strength of our state's exceptional natural and cultural resources.
The DNR last year accepted name suggestions for the trail as part of a contest; more than 8,800 ideas were received.
