CARP LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - The North Western State Trail in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula is completely open from Petoskey to Mackinaw City following a bridge replacement project.

The state Department of Natural Resources says in a statement that the Carp Lake River Bridge in Emmet County’s Carp Lake Township was the final piece of the improvement project along the 32-mile trail on the former Grand Rapids to Mackinaw railroad line.

The trail is open year-round to nonmotorized users and to snowmobiles from Dec. 1 to March 31. It’s part of a larger regional trail network.

Trail improvements and the bridge replacement were funded primarily by the federal Transportation Alternatives Program, the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund and the Recreation Improvement Fund.
