Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony at Genesee County Parks’ ‘Iron Belle Trail’ [VIDEO]

You may not know it, but Genesee County is home to miles and miles of trails for you to walk or run, hike or bike! And today, another 2.25 miles of Pure Michigan were added! Here in Mid-Michigan, we are in for a treat! According to County Commisioner Mark Young, Genesee  County is “gonna end up with one of the finest non-motorized trail systems in the State of Michigan!”

The Iron Belle Trail is the longest designated state trail, not just in Michigan, but in the nation! The new stretch starts at the Genesee County Parks Administration Building at Stanley and Genesee Roads, and winds through the beautiful Michigan landscape over to Vassar Road.  Another extension is planned that would take this section of trail even further.

Fall is here, and we’ve got a great new venue to take it all in, and enjoy the breath-taking colors as the leaves change. The best part? It right here in our own backyard!  Thanks to Danielle and the amazing team at the Genesee County Parks for inviting us to the opening, and for telling us where to get a ginormous pair of scissors!
