CIS Trail Ribbon cutting2015

On one of the first truly beautiful spring days, the Friends of the CIS Trail held the official ribbon cutting ceremony opening the trail in St. Johns, April 18. Over 200 people attended the event, many of them arriving by bicycle from Muir, Pewamo, Fowler and Ovid on the organized “Bike In” for the event. Several people spoke, representing trail groups, the Michigan Department of Transportation and  the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

This 42-mile-long project through three counties is a great example of cooperation between dedicated Friends Groups, generous private donors, local units of government, the Michigan Department of Transportation and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

Check out the video from last winter. Spring is here. Get on the trail!
