2022 CONSTRUCTION UNDERWAY-14 miles to be added to Dragon Trail White Cloud, MI: Construction at Michigan’s Dragon at Hardy Dam is ramping up for the 2022 season, adding a projected 14 miles to the previously constructed 22 miles, completed since ground broke on the project in late 2019. If the weather permits, builders plan to complete the first 10 miles and three bridges in 2022. Once complete, the Dragon Trail will be made up of 11 segments forming a complete 40+ mile loop around Hardy Pond, traversing through both Mecosta and Newaygo counties. Of the 22 miles already open to the public, 12+ miles are in Newaygo County, starting at Hardy Dam and ending in Big Bend Township Park. 8+ more miles of trail are already open in Mecosta County, starting at Brower Park loop on segment four and ending with the newest construction, Segment 7. Trail builders with Spectrum Trail Design LLC and Dragon Trail project officials kicked off the 2022 trail construction season on Friday, April 15th. Construction plans for this year include an estimated 7.6-mile stretch from Newaygo State Park, continuing north, completing segments 3, 4, and connecting to Brower Park. Newaygo County procured a Michigan Department of Natural Resources Trust Fund grant to fund a portion of this work. The new trail segments will feature bridges, raised wooden tread, and cross-country-style trail tread. Mecosta County Parks have recently added a new parking area within Brower Park. This area is specifically developed for Dragon Trail users and will allow for easy access to the new portions of the trail that will be built this season. Newaygo State Park will also feature an official trailhead. “It will truly be a large accomplishment to complete the final miles of trail construction in Mecosta County this year,” said Jeff Abel,
