Boardman Lake Loop Project Tour

Boardman Lake Loop Match Challenge!

Kayak, Bike & Brew has teamed up with TART to offer a fully donated tour! Book your 4-hour tour and 100% of the proceeds from the September 16th tour at 12pm will donated to TART.

What’s Kayak, Bike & Brew?

Kayak, Bike & Brew (KBB) is a Brewery Pub Pedal and Paddle through Traverse City’s beautiful urban TART bike trails, Boardman Lake & River and West Bay, lasting about 4 hours.
Participants meet at KBB Lounge for check-in and prepare for your bike ride. You will pedal to Right Brain Brewery where you will enjoy your first beer. Once finished we will bike to The Filling Station Microbrewery and enjoy some more delicious suds. We will launch kayaks at Hull Park directly behind The Filling Station Microbrewery. Guides will lead you on an urban paddle through Downtown Traverse City to Rare Bird Brewpub. After completing the paddle at Clinch Park Beach we will walk back to KBB Lounge / The Workshop Brewing Company for some refreshments on the patio. It’s an adventure not to be missed! This is our sister company to Paddle For Pints, just slightly different.

Thank you for your support of this project!

The vision for this project is a pathway that circles Boardman Lake, granting easy access to the library, parks, residential developments, commercial areas and local businesses. The future loop around the lake will provide connection to NMC’s University Center and ultimately head along the Boardman River south of South Airport Road providing connections to the Boardman River Trail.

The Boardman Lake Trail is owned by the City of Traverse City in partnership with Grand Traverse County and Garfield Township. TART Trails works with the City, County and Township to support the development and maintenance of the Boardman Lake Trail. For trail maps & details visit the Boardman Lake Trail Page.

The map below to the left the preferred conceptual route. The design was informed by extensive public input comprised of interviews, focus groups, public open houses and on-line public comment. TART Trails is working with landowners along the route as the preferred route is outside of existing easements.

Below choose the SEPTEMBER 16, 2018 12:00pm tour time and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to TART to complete the loop!
