The Border-to-Border Trail (B2B) is a non-motorized pathway that connects cities, parks, and many destinations throughout Washtenaw County. More than 40 miles of trail exist as a part of the B2B today, with 70 miles planned. Check out our Active Projects page to learn about plans and construction.

In 2015, the B2B was incorporated into the State of Michigan's Iron Belle Trail - a network of trails that is over 2,000 miles long and connects Belle Isle Park (Detroit) to Ironwood (western upper peninsula). We are proud to be a partner in this exciting trail initiative!

Built on Partnerships
The B2B is the product of an ongoing collaboration of communities and organizations who are dedicated to safe, accessible, shared-use, non-motorized recreation and transportation.
Completion of the B2B is one of the Parks and Recreation Commission's top priorities. They have made a serious commitment to develop and expand access to multi-use, non-motorized trails throughout the county.
Washtenaw County Parks has teamed up with a non-profit organization called the Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative (HWPI) in order to expand and accelerate completion of the B2B.
Looking to get involved in trail activities or volunteer to help keep the B2B enjoyable and safe for all trail users? The Friends of the Border-to-Border Trail is a non-profit group that helps us do just that!
