Welcome to Top of Michigan Trails Council
The Top of Michigan Trails Council’s mission is to facilitate the establishment of a network of multiple-use recreation trails in Alpena, Antrim, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Emmet, Otseqo, and Presque Isle. These trails will offer safe recreation and alternative transportation routes for all residents and visitors to the area.
In Memory of Bud Laughlin
With the passing of Bud Laughlin on June 22 the TOMTC lost a great friend and supporter. In addition to being a board member Bud served as a trail captain with the Friends of the North Central State Trail which meant he maintained a section of the trail and recruited volunteers to help him. The Friends assist the DNR in debris removal, and other light maintenance tasks. Bud also added several benches to the NCST, building them himself to make the trail experience that much more pleasurable for users. The Ultra Marathon which TOMTC sponsors each fall was also supported by Bud. He organized and staffed one of the aid stations to assure runners had a safe experience. No task related to the trails was to big or small for Bud to support.
