Michigan Trails and Recreation Alliance of Land and the Environment is garnering support for an equestrian campground at the Simar Landing Strip in Mass City, Mich., the Iron Mountain Daily Globe reported.

In a letter requesting support from local groups and state officials, Cathy Wainio, of MI-TRALE, noted the organization is in the business of helping build and improve trail recreation across the five western Upper Peninsula counties.

The group presently maintains and improves off-road vehicle and equestrian trails under MI-TRALE support and maintenance agreements with the Ottawa National Forest and Department of Natural Resources.

Wainio said MI-TRALE is working on a new venue for the area, an equestrian campground, to further increase tourism.
