Directions and Parking

Recommended parking for this trail segment can be found at the following location:

The City of Chelsea offers many public parking options.

**As we work toward making the final connections between Dexter and Chelsea, parking will be challenging along this segment. Once the corridor is complete, there will be parking and safe public access. Until then, if you do park in this area, please do not use Beacon Hill Drive as it is a private road.

Project construction/completion updates

Pre-construction has begun on a 1.5 Mile segment from Dancer Road east to Wylie Road to be built on property acquired by HWPI in 2019

The tree removal work has been completed and construction on the trail project should start later this summer and finish up this fall.
