A TRAILS PLAN

for Greater Lansing

Why does the Greater Lansing region need a trails plan? How do trails help our communities and residents? Start here to find out more about Tri-County's plan.

THE PROJECT

At the foundation of any plan is a vision - one that betters our region and residents and guides plan development. See what's been created in partnership with community stakeholders.

THE VISION

To successfully create an implementable plan built on community consensus, we need YOU to provide input throughout development. Stay tuned for opportunities to get involved!

What is a Trails Plan?

The connectivity and accessibility of our region's parks, trails, and water amenities play a crucial role in making the Greater Lansing area a competitive place to live and play. Trails are more than a recreational asset - they bring economic prosperity and other benefits to our communities and to those who walk and bike in our region. Trails:

  • provide low-cost recreational opportunities for families and other users

  • boost spending at local businesses and improve tourism

  • make communities more attractive places to live and increase property values

  • serve as amenities to attract and retain top talent

  • connect users to community assets and public spaces

  • encourage exercise and other healthy outdoor activities

  • offer an alternative means of transportation and connect our broader multimodal system

  • promote conservation, revitalization, and purposeful development of outdoor assets and spaces

Tri-County has partnered with the U.S. National Park Service to create a plan for our regional trails system - one that works to improve the quality of life for our region's residents and take advantage of our region's central geographic location to bolster Mid-Michigan as a hub for local businesses, communities, and visitors.
