Norway bike trail

Kyle Peterson of Kingsford takes the first ride on a new mountain bike trail in the Marion Park area of Norway. Over the weekend, volunteers cut about a quarter-mile of trails starting just south of the park’s new tennis courts. The Norway City Council on Oct. 2 allowed local residents working with the Dickinson County Bike Path Committee to start phase one of the project, which includes creating beginner-level trails up to two miles in total length on city-owned property from the park pavilion to south of Oak Crest Golf Course. Subsequent phases will connect these trails with moderate and advanced trails leading to the Piers Gorge area.
