A major stretch of a proposed trail would run through Allegan County and planners want input from people in the area.

The proposed River to River Trail routes would run parallel to U.S. 131 through places like Wayland, Shelbyville and Plainwell. The trail would be 42 miles long and link existing trails in Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo.

Wayland Union High School's fine arts center will host a public input session from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 9.

Byron Center and Cooper Township have also hosted these meetings and there will be another in Plainwell next month.
