Work is underway on the Averill Rollway Trail-Head project adjacent to the Pere Marquette Rail Trail. Mild December weather has allowed crews to begin construction of a new trailhead parking lot and pavilion at the scenic Averill rollway site, an area rich in our Michigan’s logging history. Construction will be stopped as winter moves in, but will recommence when weather breaks this spring. Completion of the project will provide a new access location for the trail, as well as a historical look at the significant location that was Averill in the 1880's logging era.
The Averill improvement and the replacement of two miles of trail surface at North Bradley are the results of a Natural Resources Trust Fund Grant that was awarded to Midland County in 2013.
The North Bradley trail surface improvements will take place in 2015.
