Project construction/completion updates

In 2021, we are excited to begin construction on 1.6 miles of trail that will complete the trail from Werkner Road, south, to Timbertown and Veteran’s Park. There, the trail switches to on-road and sidewalk as it enters downtown Chelsea.

Future plans also call for an additional 7.2 miles northwest of North Territorial Road to connect to the Village of Stockbridge, which will likely be completed in several construction phases.

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.
