The scenic Mariners Trail along the Lake Michigan coast connects the cities of Two Rivers and Manitowoc, WI (see map) and is considered a great asset to both communities. I recently had the opportunity to attend the annual Friends of Mariners Trail dinner in Two Rivers. It was nice to see such a large group of people so enthusiastic about the trail and both mayors in attendance. Though I wasn't able to ride the trail due to snow drifts blocking it (trail not plowed), a presentation at the event showcased the beautiful gardens, sculptures, and access to the sandy shoreline along the path during the warmer months.

Walking along the trail I spotted the “Travel Friendly” sign which I thought was a nice reminder to use proper etiquette. I wouldn’t mind seeing these signs around Madison.
