Friends of the Michigan Air Line Trail

The Friends group, comprised of volunteers from all three towns and surrounding areas, supports the efforts of the Trail Council and serves as educators and ambassadors for the Air Line.  Trail cleanups and staffing of local events are just a few of the tasks that the Friends take on.


The Friends meet on the first Tuesday of the month. Right now meetings are at 6:30pm, and are currently held at the Walled Lake Library, but the location will change every six months... check the website home page for the latest. Please join us!


Currently the Friends Group is fundraising for Mile Markers along the trail. To date we have raised over half the amount needed, but if you would like to place a donation online, visit the "Donate" page, and be sure to include "mile markers" in the "additional details" section of the Paypal donation form.


Events on and Around the Air Line

We are happy to announce the first "official" cycling event to open the trail is scheduled!


In partnership with Motor City Brew Tours, The Bike & Brew Ride will take place on National Trails Day, June 6, 2020.  The ride will start and finish at Drafting Table and will follow a route east on the Air Line and the West Bloomfield Trails, turning around at a bar in Sylvan Lake/Keego Harbor (TBD) and returning to Drafting Table.


Registration is now open.  Please note that participation is limited to 150 participants.
