We hope you enjoy our trip down memory lane of the trails we love and work so hard to maintain and improve.  If you have pictures of the trails and events that would add to our gallery, please email them to us.  


Shared Trails Poster
Brought to you by 

After recent improvements to the Lakelands Trail (which borders the PTRA horse trails) increased multi-use traffic on the trail, PTRA realized education was necessary for the safety of all.  We approached Back Country Horsemen of Idaho for the use of and permission to change some wording on their eye-catching poster.  Permission granted, PTRA purchased 25 of these signs to place at all stop signs and various spots along the trail. We are also partnering with Greenway Alliance Group and Michigan DNR to implement the poster state-wide in the hopes to keep encounters positive.  For all the details, check out our Fall 2013 Newsletter.
