Born from the Leelanau Scenic Heritage Route Committee, formed in 2001, the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail has been developed by community partners including the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, TART Trails, Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes, Networks Northwest, MDOT, the Leelanau County Road Commission, and local units of government. Funding for continued trail development comes from state and federal grants, contributions from the local units of government, and private funding.
