WHITEFISH TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A popular hiking trail in the eastern Upper Peninsula has reopened after high water on the Tahquamenon River forced it to close for several weeks.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources said May 21 that the 5-mile-long River Trail connecting the Tahquamenon Falls State Park’s upper and lower falls was impassable.

Since then, crews have been working to repair the damage, remove trees and build new boardwalks and bridges.

The Evening News of Sault Ste. Marie (https://bit.ly/1lpTkYJ ) reported Sunday that debris remains on some sections of the trail, but walkers now can pass safely.

The park is headquartered in Chippewa County’s Whitefish Township.
