Boardman Lake Trail

The 2-mile heavily wooded trail along the east side of Boardman Lake was constructed in October 2005.  This northern mile of this serene trail is paved,  while the southern mile is crushed limestone.

Access and parking at the north end is off Hannah Road just south of the Traverse Area District Library, and at the south end from Medalie Park in the Logan’s Landing area off South Airport Road.

The vision for this trail is a pathway that circles Boardman Lake, granting easy access to the library, Medalie and Hull Parks, Oryana Food Cooperative and city neighborhoods.

The western portion of the Boardman Lake Trail between Oryana and 14th Street will be paved in 2014. Visit the City of Traverse City’s project page for more information.

The Boardman Lake Trail within the city limits is owned by the City of Traverse City, outside the city limits it is owned by Garfield Township. TART Trails works with the City and Township on trail projects.
