Saginaw County to build first section of tri-county RAIL TRAIL

SAGINAW, MI — A 40-mile loop that would connect nearly 100 total miles of trail passing through Saginaw, Bay and 12390542-largeMidland counties will be two miles closer to a reality if Saginaw County receives a $300,000 state grant it plans to apply for before April 1.

The stretch of trail from Zilwaukee Township to the Saginaw-Bay county line would be the first big piece of the puzzle to be completed, Saginaw County Parks and Recreation Commissioner Director John Schmude told county commissioners Tuesday, March 5.
