Rouge Park, Detroit- Sunday, April 18th


I thought this trail was not open, or there was no interest?

It has regained interest and we have two TC's who will be planning/flagging that day along with some spring cleaning. They have some volunteers with some other city organizations to help with the trail work this summer.
