The first phase of the Three Mile Trail opened in 2006. The 2-mile long trail goes along Three Mile Road from the State Park beach on US 31 to South Airport Road. The trail was built as part of the Three Mile Road widening project. TART Trails worked with the Grand Traverse County Road Commission on the project.

Work is underway to enable trail planning to begin on the Three Mile Trail from South Airport Rd. to Hammond Road. East Bay Township is leading the initiative in partnership with TART Trails, the Grand Traverse County Road Commission, Michigan Department of Transportation, and Norte which will be a step towards moving this important non-motorized transportation project forward.

East Bay Township has already committed $40,000 to design and TART Trails has leveraged those funds with a $10,500 matching gift. Once completed, this trail project will make important community connections to neighborhoods, schools, businesses and green spaces along this important transportation corridor.

Special thanks to Dan and Debbie Edson for providing the matching gift
