Western Michigan Chapter
The Western Michigan Chapter (WMI) is responsible for the trail within Kent and Newaygo counties, spanning from south of Grand Rapids up through the southern third of the Huron-Manistee National Forest. Generally, completed trail is on public lands, including the Lowell and Rogue River State Game Areas, and the Huron-Manistee National Forest.
The WMI is the association’s largest chapter, with nearly 250 members. Although most members live in the Grand Rapids area, many also reside farther north and east. Some even live out of state.
The WMI focuses its efforts primarily on planning, building, and maintaining high-quality, sustainable trail within its area of responsibility. It also holds many social events throughout the year, including group hikes, backpacking trips, skill-building events, etc.
