Volunteers came together to banish the remnants of winter from the Clark Lake Spirit Trail.  As you will hear Dan Omo comment in this one minute video, many people have been working on the Trail leading up to  today’s activities.

In addition to this spring clean up, volunteers are also active throughout the year watching for and repairing path wash-outs, trimming low hanging branches, and mowing. 

From time to time, there are major infrastructure repairs such as the complete overhaul of the section next to the post office at the west end and the addition of the new section between Rita and Grand Boulevard.  For larger scale infrastructure improvements, donations become necessary.  You can make a tax-advantaged donation through this website via credit card or by check to the Clark Lake Spirit Foundation, PO Box 224, Clark Lake, Michigan 49234.

The Spirit Trail committee meets throughout the year.  Ann Swain and Tucker Boyers are co-chairs.  They are joined by other volunteers who put in many hours of effort to maintain and improve this benefit to the community.

The Trail enables walkers, runners and cyclists to circle the 7.3 mile perimeter of the lake. The path leads through canopied forests, traditional neighborhoods, rural settings and provides views of the lake.
