SOUTHWEST MICHIGAN ALLIANCE FOR RECREATIONAL TRAILS (SMART)
By Josh DeBruyn-MDOT Pedestrian and Bicycle Coordinator
Join us on Facebook
SMART was created to promote the connection of trails among nine southwest Michigan counties and with trails in neighboring regions. The nine southwest Michigan counties include Allegan, Barry, Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Cass, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph, and Van Buren.
This regional collaboration would allow for trails to expand beyond geographic boundaries. Having a connected system of trails will link people and communities. It will also provide more opportunities for people to connect to and explore nature and its interconnected ecosystems. Nature knows no geographic limits.
