Trail News & Upcoming Events

A word of appreciation New!

A number of people and groups helped to enhance Mariners Trail this fall. Faith Church and the Manitowoc Education Association both did Trail cleanups this Fall. Aurora Medical Center sponsored a brush removal day and opened up the view so people can see Lake Michigan as they use the Trial or drive down Memorial Drive. Jim Knickelbine of Woodland Dunes recently planted native flowering plants in berms near the Two Rivers side of the Trail. Thank you all very much!

In August, City of Manitowoc employees spent a good part of a day cleaning up Mariners Trail from the Yacht Club to just north of Waldo Blvd. Their work resulted in: 50+ gallons of garbage collected (everything from soda cans and cigarette butts to a pair of flip flops); Little Manitowoc Prairie landscape trimming, maintenance, and herbicide application; Mariners Trail hedge trimming and lawn cutting; honeysuckle, willow, and buckthorn removal with herbicide treatment, as well as pruning native trees. We are so appreciative. Thank you to all who participated.

Also, a big Thank You to the Manitowoc and Two Rivers communities for their support of Mariners Trail.
