26 Aug Tread Lightly! Impact Report: Marblehead Loop Cleanup with Rancho Suspension
Project: Marblehead Loop Cleanup
Location: Drummond Island, MI
On August 18, 2022, Tread Lightly! and Rancho Suspensions organized a cleanup of the South Marblehead Loop area on Drummond Island, a popular and unique off-roading destination in the Upper Peninsula in Michigan. Together 31 volunteers, including participants from the Great Lakes 4 Wheel Drive Association and Mud, Sweat and Gears 4×4 club, cleaned up 253 lbs of trash from the trail, improving 25 miles. The cleanup kicked off the 2022 Drummond Island Offroad Adventure event. Thank you to Rancho Suspensions for funding this cleanup effort and helping protect the adventure for future generations!
