I remember siting in the meeting that the head guy of Gladwin was at. he wanted the loop closed on the north side because of a water crossing that was like a 2'-3' wide. he wanted to spend $100,000 on a concrete bunker bridge to cross it! it was made very clear at the meeting that if they moved the trail to the west I believe about 150' it would go around the spring that fed the creek there and they wouldn't need to spend the $100K. good old Bill O'Neil and his pandering.
