Recently Gordon Tester’s class from Munising High School spent a full day at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, helping with trail maintenance. This included erosion control efforts, tree planting and trail building.
“The students enjoyed being outside even though it was a cold and windy day. They learned that a lot of work goes into trail design and upkeep,” Park Ranger Dave Kronk said. People interested in volunteering some of their time to work on the park trails should contact volunteer coordinator Pam Baker at 387-3700.
Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore has almost 100 miles of hiking trails. The Chapel Loop is a popular nine mile hike along the most scenic rock formations. Maps and information may be obtained at the Visitor Center in Munising or by visiting the park website at www.nps.gov/piro.
Come visit the park and celebrate National Trails Day!
