Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation Trails, Inc.
The TART Trails network includes seven multi-use trails in Grand Traverse and Leelanau counties totaling more than 60 miles. The Leelanau Trail, which connects Suttons Bay to Traverse City, currently consists of 8.5 paved miles and 7 miles of hard-packed dirt. In addition to use for various summer activities, it is groomed for cross-country skiing during the winter. The entire Leelanau Trail is scheduled to be paved by summer of 2012 with support from individuals and organizations.
TART Trails, Inc was formed in 1998 when four individual trail groups in the Traverse City area united to create a stronger force for recreation and alternative transportation in northwest Michigan. TART is dedicated to providing recreation and transportation opportunities as well as preserving open space corridors through a network of trails. TART is a non-profit organization that builds trails, advocates for active living and outdoor recreation. Our work includes negotiating easements, hosting annual events that promote healthy lifestyles, and defending cyclist and pedestrian interests.
