About Karen’s Trail
Karen’s Trail honors the life and legacy of Karen McKeachie—world-class triathlete, athletic pioneer, community leader, and a force of nature to all of us who knew her! Karen’s Trail celebrates what Karen loved most by expanding recreational opportunities for everyone in the region.
Karen’s Trail is a public campaign to support the building of the Border-to-Border (B2B) trail system. Specifically, your support enables construction of the B2B within the next five years. When finished, the B2B will be a paved, non-motorized trail that follows the Huron River all the way from its entry into Washtenaw County near Pinckney until its exit into Wayne County near Belleville. Additionally, the trail includes an extra 44–mile loop connecting the Cities of Dexter and Chelsea, the Waterloo and Pinckney State Recreation Areas, and the Lakelands State Trail system. We hope to have the entire project finished by 2021—and when we do, it will instantly become one of the largest continuous, traffic-free trails in the Midwest!
Please join us in building Karen’s Trail! Your donation will help accelerate the completion of the Border-to-Border (B2B) Trail. When complete, it will connect Ann Arbor, Dexter, Chelsea, and Stockbridge. Approximately 25 miles of the B2B have been built and 21 miles are planned for construction. Please help to honor Karen’s memory by providing safe, non- motorized pathways for all.
