Introducing the Nakwema Trialway


TART Trails and Top of Michigan Trails Council, together with Networks Northwest, are thrilled to introduce the Nakwema (nah-KWAY-mah) Trailway, formerly known as the Traverse City ↔ Charlevoix Trail. Nakwema, Ojibwe for “where paths connect,” passes through seven townships and three counties, offering the premier trail experience to explore our unique region through active transportation and non-motorized recreation. Nakwema pays homage to the people who first created these routes, and the lands and waters it winds through. Promoting a healthy environment, thriving economies, and resilient communities, the Trailway contributes to the existing vibrancy and vitality of northwest Lower Michigan. Learn more here!
