A $500,000 trailhead is the new marker for the northern end of the White Pine Trail, which runs from Comstock Park to Cadillac.
The 92-mile rail-trail follows the route of the former Grand Rapids and Indiana Railroad. The new trailhead in Cadillac is the first formal marker of the trail’s northern terminus.
“As a designated Pure Michigan Trail Town, Cadillac is thrilled to showcase a space that officially marks the northern end of the trail,” Kathy Morin, executive director of the Cadillac Area Visitors Bureau, said in a statement.
Work on the trailhead began in April. It was dedicated earlier this month. At the corner of Cass and Lake streets, the trailhead includes a parking area, benches, bike racks, bicycle repair station information kiosks. The kiosks include trail maps, information about the trail and Cadillac, and QR codes for more information.
