Events - The “Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park” is first and foremost a trail for the casual user! The trail was not intended or designed for major fund-raising events.
If you are planning on having an event you must get a “use permit” from the park manager.
Additionally your event must not close the trail and you must inform your participants that the casual user has the right to be there and must be respected.
The “Friends” is currently the major entity maintaining the trail; and your event is the beneficiary if you have it on the trail! Please consider a small portion of your proceeds to help the “Friends” make the trail a great place for all approved users.
During the winter months the trail has varied uses, and everyone must respect the other users, the snowmobilers, and other approved users can co-mingle on the trail if everyone respects other’s right to be there!
