TART Trails' mission is to provide and promote a trail network that enriches people and communities throughout the greater Traverse region. The TART Trails are a network of trail systems located in Grand Traverse and Leelanau counties and include the Boardman Lake Trail, Boardman Valley Trail, Buffalo Ridge Trail, Leelanau Trail, TART Trail, Three Mile Trail and Vasa Pathway. These trails combine to form over 60 miles of recreation and transportation pathways spanning from Suttons Bay to Acme Township. It is estimated that the trails serve over 200,000 users annually while preserving valuable community greenspace. TART is working to integrate these trails into the community by advocating for interconnected bike lanes, bike routes and sidewalks, and is also working to extend these trails to connect with a developing regional trails system.
