More big news for recreational opportunities between Hancock and Lake Linden. The Department of Natural Resources is already committed to repairing damage from the Father’s Day Flood for the snowmobile and ATV/UTV trail next year. The Houghton County Recreational Authority is planning a route for hikers and cyclists, according to Commissioner Tom Tikkanen.
Tikkanen says the opportunity shows the real benefits of the informal committee, made up of representatives from a majority of municipalities, along with county officials. The affected townships, villages and cities have to support a project first, before it is adopted by the Recreation Authority, says Commissioner Glenn Anderson.
Additionally, the Natural Resources Trust Fund has recently approved a study to improve accessibility to the Houghton-Douglass Falls. The project will eventually be recognized as a Veterans Memorial Park.
