Rail trail connecting the village of Suttons Bay with Traverse City.

Cotopaxi Sprattmoran

Features -none-

Description

The 17-mile Leelanau Trail provides a paved, off-road connection between Traverse City and Suttons Bay. Running through the last of Leelanau County’s former railroad corridors, the Leelanau Trail features picturesque forests, farms, vineyards, lakes and ponds.

In the winter, the Leelanau Trail is groomed by TART Trails volunteers as conditions permit, and includes conditions well-suited for classic and skate-skiing, fatbiking and snowshoeing. The trail is groomed from the Cherry Bend trailhead to the 4th St trailhead.
