The Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes manages and operates the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail. In 2015, it cost over $13,000 to maintain the trail. This year, we are looking for people who love and use the trail to pitch in and help us cover the cost. We are asking for a $2.00 donation for paper trail maps. You can download a trail map and print it for free, or you can use our online interactive map for free. Businesses who support the trail can be on the interactive map. Click here for details.
In addition, we’ve been asked to put benches, bike racks, and picnic tables at various places along the trail. So we are offering donors the opportunity to make substantial donations to the trail and in return, we will dedicate one of these to you or whoever you designate.
We’ve also found that people love to have part of the trail in their home. One way is to make a donation and receive a mile-marker sign that was used on the SBHT. These small signs (3.25″ square) were replaced with the yellow emergency mile-marker signs in 2015.
