Construction at Clinch – Please be aware that the TART Trail through Clinch Park will be closed starting September 4th, 2012 due to the redevelopment of Clinch Park. Fencing will go up along the perimeter of Clinch Park and the tunnel at Cass Street will be closed. The City will be posting signs directing trail users to cross the Parkway at the signalized intersections of Park and Union Streets to avoid construction. Construction is scheduled to last until June 24, 2013. We’ll all be there to celebrate the new trail and park!
The 10.5 mile long TART Trail is a paved urban transportation corridor with an eastern end point at M-72 (Bates Road) in Acme Township and a western end point at the M-22/M-72 intersection in Traverse City.
The eastern trail section from M-72 to Lautner Road is 2 miles, and then the trail leapfrogs to Bunker Hill Road and continues for 8.4 miles into Traverse City. At its western end the TART trail connects to the Leelanau Trail, which runs north to Suttons Bay.
The TART Trail’s route gives users views of both West and East Grand Traverse Bays, through Traverse City neighborhoods and the Mitchell Creek watershed. Locals and visitors enjoy the TART, including families, bicyclists, dog walkers, parents pushing strollers and inline skaters.
Auto parking available at numerous parks and Traverse City public parking lots.
