ALPENA – The Department of Natural Resources Natural Resources Trust Fund has paid for lots of recreational lands and development around Northeast Michigan, and may provide funds to build a new trailhead in Alpena.

The city has applied for a $350,000 grant, including a $105,000 local match, with backing from the Besser Foundation, Northeast Michigan Community Foundation, Alpena Lions Club and others, City Manager Greg Sundin said. It’s the second time the city has applied for the grant, with the first try falling short in 2012.
