Boardman Lake Trail Gets Big Financial Boost

The Boardman Lake Trail currently follows the east side of Boardman Lake for two miles. The trail passes through woods and follows the lakeshore. The vision for the trail is that it will encircle the lake providing access to the Traverse Area District Library, Medalie and Hull Parks and more. This will also create a connection between this trail and the TART (Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation) Trail system.

The Grand Traverse County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority has recently granted 10 million dollars for the West Boardman Lake Trail project. The Michigan Economic Growth Authority board approved this as a tax break to expand a road construction project to include 1.8 miles of trail on the west side of the lake. Although the news is welcome, it will be several years before the project is even begun.
