The Pure Michigan brand has brought attention to the state’s lakes, breweries and museums. Some are hoping that the Pure Michigan designation may bring the same attention to the state’s trail systems. Recently, a five bill package was introduced to lawmakers that would promote a “Pure Michigan Trail Network.” The bill would solidify trail standards and connect trail ways with communities.Nancy Krupiarz is the Executive Director of the Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance. Krupiarz says the organization works primarily with multi-use trails like abandoned rail trails and connecting corridors for walking and biking.
