Grant announced for Shiawassee River landing
of Maine has awarded Headwaters Trails a grant to secure an
option to buy property for a midpoint landing on the "Top
of the Shiawassee" Water Heritage Trail. The
property owner has agreed in principal to sell sufficient acreage
point where the Shiawassee River
crosses under Fish Lake Road in Holly Township (see
trails map: "canoe landing"). This location will
serve as a take-out for a short trip starting in
or the beginning of a longer float to Fenton's Strom Park through
scenic wild lands.
Headwaters Trails will start a campaign to raise approximately
$90,000 for purchase of the property, construction of off-road
parking, building of a landing site on the river and provision
of rest stop amenities.
