Happy trails

Sumpter Township officials were among those across the country who celebrated National Take a Hike Day earlier this month with inviting photos of Crosswinds Marsh. The new township Facebook page features photos of the 7.5 miles of trails in the marsh, three of which are designated for hiking and pedestrian only. The post noted that Michigan has more than 13,400 miles of state designated multi use trails while hiking only trails make up 4,020 of those. Michigan is also one of seven states that host the North Country Trail, which totals 4,800 miles. Like most other municipalities, Sumpter Township Hall will be closed today and tomorrow to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. To access the new Sumpter Township Facebook page, go to:
