BOYNE CITY, Mich. (AP) - Plans are in the works for 10 more miles of trails at Avalanche Preserve recreation area in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula.

The Top of Michigan Mountain Bike Association is involved in the project and a crowdfunding campaign is set up to boost the Boyne City-area project.

If the campaign reaches its $50,000 goal by July 23, the project will win a matching grant with funds made possible by the Michigan Economic Development Corp. and Michigan State Housing Development Authority’s Public Spaces Community Places program.

The trails will draw mountain bikers, runners, hikers and others. Top of Michigan Mountain Bike Association board member Sarah Gurney says they’ll help make the area “the hub of mountain biking for this region” and include routes for beginner to expert trail users.
