A new trail in western Michigan that developers believe could become a national attraction is set to break ground this year.

According to WILX-News 10, Your Breaking News and Weather Authority, construction on Michigan's Dragon at Hardy Dam trail in Newaygo and Mecosta counties could begin by this summer.

From high above, the 47 mile hiking and biking trail encircles a dam formed pond that resembles the shape of a dragon.

The planned trail will pass through untamed terrain, campgrounds and marinas.  It will also include 13 scenic overlooks and 20 footbridges.  The trail is expected to be complete in 2022, pending approval.
