Community open house for North Country Trail


Tuesday, July 21

Come learn more about an effort to bring America’s longest national scenic trail through Kent County. The North Country Trail Association and National Park Service will have information and maps available at the Cedar Springs Community Development Building team meeting on July 21. They are conducting an Optimal Location Review (OLR) process to find the best route for the trail in this area. The community is invited to ask questions, get information, give feedback, and provide insight into possible routing options for the trail.

The meeting will be hosted at the Hilltop Community Resource Center in Cedar Springs, in the board room, on the 3rd floor, 204 E. Muskegon St.

The evening will begin at 5:00 p.m., with an open house style session, with the Community Development meeting following at 6:00 p.m. to discuss various route alternatives. Time will be set aside afterwards for further questions and discussion.

The North Country Trail seeks to connect with the most scenic, historical, cultural, and natural features in the areas it passes through, telling the story of the nation and the local communities. At 4,600 miles, the North Country Trail is twice as long as its famous cousin the Appalachian Trail, both intended for quiet outdoor recreation in a natural setting. Stretching from North Dakota to Vermont, it is a gem of natural beauty and diversity. Find out how else you can get involved to bring this great natural resource through your backyard. You can send any questions or comments to Luke at redrivervalley@northcountrytrail.org
