Tahquamenon Country Pathways Association


2018 Spring cleanup will be between April 28 and May 6. Details to be announced at April 26 meeting.

TCPA and MDOT Collaboration In 2017 the TCPA board decided to get involved with Michigan's Department of Transportation's Adopt-A-Highway program. Two miles opened up along the Tahquamenon Scenic Byway and opened up a win-win-win opportunity for TCPA.

WIN One -- TCPA members get together twice a year and walk along the route collecting rubbish, getting exercise, and comraderie.
WIN TWO--The scenic byway retains its glorious beauty for the benefit of all who travel.
WIN THREE--TCPA receives acknowledgement and recognition through this dandy placque along the road.

How can you be involved? Watch for postings of times on our Facebook page or follow the meeting minutes of the board. Watch a saftey video, don a saftey jacket (provided at the meeting site, then join the group on their next ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY adventure.

TRAIL REVIEW "We were up last weekend (1/30/16) and enjoyed shoeing all of the south pathway, a portion of the north trail and Sawmill Creek which is a great place to take children for an outing. Looking forward to being back in February." . . . P & J of Otisville, MI
