TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - Plans are in the works for a new water trail in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/2apCGaX ) the Land Information Access Association says public input is being sought for the planned 29-mile trail along the Boardman River. The association’s Executive Director Larry Burkholder says it wants people to offer input, including on where access points should be located.

The association is working with local governments and conservation organizations on the project. An open house is Wednesday evening at the Traverse Area District Library.

The trail will be a designated route designed for people using small boats. It will include well-developed access points near significant historical, environmental or cultural points of interest. Nearby attractions such as restaurants and campgrounds will be highlighted.
