Dedicated to completing, enhancing, and encouraging the use of the Border To Border Trail in Washtenaw County, Michigan
The Border To Border trail, of which major segments have been completed, will span across Washtenaw County, roughly following the Huron River. The pathway will connect communities, parks, and educational facilities, and be approximately 35 miles in length. In addition, other facilities, such as bike lanes, will connect into the Border To Border trail, helping create a larger non-motorized network in the County.
And while the Border To Border trail was originally thought of as a recreational pathway, in times of rising energy costs, the facility is being used more and more for non-motorized transportation. Segments already completed allow users to go from Ypsilanti to Ann Arbor completely off street, and in doing so passing immediately next to Eastern Michigan University, the University of Michigan hospital, Washtenaw Community College and St. Joseph’s hospital.
About the Friends Of The Border To Border Trail
Started in 2008, the Friends of the Border To Border Trail are a group of individuals working to see that the Border To Border Trail is completed, maintained, enhanced and most of all, used. While completely independent of government bodies and other organizations, the Friends of the Border To Border plans to work closely and positively with entities that are involved with the path.
