Iron Belle Trail Extension

  • Description: The Iron Belle Trail (IBT) Extension project piggybacks on the original project. The extension adds roughly 2-miles of length to the trail through Otsego County, extending it's southern boundary from Passenheim Road in Waters, roughly to the Crawford County Line. As stated above, this local trail project is part of the larger state Iron Belle Trail Project. The Iron Belle Trail is planned to be Michigan's "showcase trail". Once completed, it will extend over 2,000 miles from the far western tip of the U.P. to Belle Isle in Detroit. Construction of the extension began in May 2019, and was completed in July 2019.
