FRASER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

A 4-mile-long stretch of recreational trail that was built along an abandoned rail line in Bay County has been completed.

The Michigan Department of Transportation and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources say the trail in Fraser Township is owned by the DNR and is part of the Iron Belle Trail, a route that's being developed between Detroit's Belle Isle and Ironwood in the Upper Peninsula.

The Fraser Township portion of the trail also will serve as part of an inter-regional system connecting Saginaw, Bay and Arenac counties.

Funding for the trail was nearly $630,000 and was provided by a Transportation Alternative Program grant, with matching funds supplied by the DNR's Recreation Improvement Fund and Recreational Trails Program. The project also includes a trailhead.
