NTN Forestville Trailhead Facility Gets a Facelift

While you’ve been hiking, biking, swimming and enjoying our beautiful UP summer, a lot of improvements have been underway at the Forestville Trailhead. The big news is a second bathroom has been installed. We now have a water fountain, a door that has a window to avoid inadvertent collisions and some other interior alterations. Our goal before opening for the ski season is to give the interior a fresh coat of paint and create some Nordic décor. We’re looking for donations to brighten up our building.

Records were set this year with 2,387 riders taking part in the 48-mile, 28-mile, 10-mile and various youth events. We are especially proud of the number of kids that race at our event.

O2S Volunteer Oppotunites

August is just around the corner, which means last minute logistics are underway for the Marquette General Health System 2012 Ore to Shore Mountain Bike Epic to be held on Saturday, August 11.  Last year’s race was a huge success, thanks in part to all of the volunteers who so generously gave their time and talents to a wonderful community event.  One sentiment that has been consistent throughout the race’s history is the volunteer support we receive.  From day one, our bikers have been thrilled with the volunteers throughout the course, the spirit and excitement that they’ve shown, and the

New North Trail offer sweet features

New North Trail offer sweet features By Jeni Jewell The sound of the river gurgling just a few feet away fills my ears as I traverse down the new Collinsville Cut Trail, on the Marquette NTN North Trails, off Wright Street, in Marquette. The trail is fresh, 2.25 miles for riding, walking, running, hiking and other non-motorized uses, part of the Dead River (Orange Loop) that will see development for the next several years. “ Our plan is to build trails all the way around the (Dead River) basin in a loop that connects to Tourist Park and also to a
