Project construction/completion updates
Construction has begun on a new segment of trail along the east side of M-52 in Lyndon Township. This segment will add 1.6 miles beginning at M-52 and North Territorial extending to Boyce Road. This project includes grading, paving the trail, and tree planting and improvements to existing trail south of the trailhead near the DTE Trail connection.
Supported by the MEDC Chelsea Connection Campaign, Phase B of construction on this 1.1 mile segment is open between Werkner Road and Timbertown/Veteran’s Park. Community celebration event to be announced Spring 2023.
There is a short unfinished gap that remains on the trail due to the pending replacement of the culvert under M-52, which is in poor condition. The culvert is located just North of the Staffan Mitchell funeral home.

Trail Access and Description
The completed trail within the Chelsea-Stockbridge Corridor is 4.7 miles of rolling, road-separated, non-motorized trail that roughly parallels M-52 between Werkner Road and North Territorial Road. Visitors will experience a rural landscape featuring lakeviews, woodlands, wetlands and glacial topography. This is the hilliest segment of the B2B Trail but it was designed with accessibility in mind and uses gentle slopes to traverse the post-glacial landscape.
Near the northern end of the trail is the B2B Trailhead at Lyndon Township Hall, which features dedicated trail parking, water, a vaulted toilet, bike repair tools, picnicking, and more. Near the trailhead, the DNR offers two ADA accessible hunting/wildlife viewing blinds that can be reached via a short, gravel accessible path from the Lyndon Township Trailhead. For more information or to reserve the blinds, please call the Pinckney Recreation Area at 734-426-4913.
This trail is owned and maintained by the Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation Commission.
