Rick,
Could you please send me some info on who you are dealing with at the DEQ. I assume it is someone in the Water Resources Division (formerly Land an Water Division) up in GR. I work for the DEQ down in Kalamazoo but live up in Zeeland. I can try to contact them as well and see what is going on. Unless things have changed since your last post. Thanks!

I know Rick said that there is a meeting tonight, June 12. A few weeks ago he said it wasn't looking very good...

Good news! The DEQ approved single track trails at Upper Mac. We need to proceed in phases starting this fall. A trail work day will be posted here when construction begins. :D

Great news! Thanks Rick, and to everyone else who has seen this through to this point. Tons more work still to do, but I appreciate the work that has already gone into it. I am looking forward to it.

Rick,

I know the focus is on the Merrill trail at this point in time, but any idea when work will start on the Upper Mac trail? I will give any time I can (which is very limited in the fall due to soccer 4 nights a week) but I will give what I can.

Thanks.

Thanks Rick. I assume this thread is where the requests/updates will be given?

I think this is the proper address.

Hope to see you there.
