ACME TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Dozens of trails advocates from across Michigan are expected at a state summit aimed at helping to better connect Michigan’s recreational trail systems.

Julie Clark is executive director of Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation Trails, or TART, and is expected to kick off the daylong summit Tuesday at Grand Traverse Resort in Acme Township, near Traverse City.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1eN89NL ) she’ll help state Department of Natural Resources policy coordinator Donna Stine present an overview of the state’s comprehensive trail plans.

Michigan has more than 12,000 miles of recreational trails, including more than 2,600 miles of rail lines converted for recreational use.

The summit is part of a weeklong Michigan Recreation & Parks Association conference and trade show that runs through Friday.
