Hey Hikers and Skiers…Where Were You?

Governor Rick Snyder showed enthusiasm during his State of the State speech…this week…for the Pure Michigan marketing campaign and for the state’s growing trail system. Snyder says non-resident daily passes at state parks in the Upper Peninsula increased more than 50-percent during the last three years. At the same time, he says the 2,000-mile long Iron Belle Trailwill be the longest statewide trail in the country once it’s completed.

We’re gonna show the rest of the world that if you want to have great recreational opportunities, in addition to the best lakes in the world, we’re gonna have the best trails to go with ‘em” -Governor Rick Snyder

Despite the governor’s enthusiasm, officials with the Department of Natural Resources are expressing disappointment over results of a recent statewide survey aimed at trail users. They say so few people participated, the results are not statistically relevant. Planners had hoped to use the results for future projects and more. The DNR may offer the survey again in the future.

Here’s what you missed:
