The Al Bell Trail
The Al Bell Trail was named for a man who has given unselfishly to environmental organizations in the Muskegon area. He is a member of the Muskegon Conservation Club and has served on the Muskegon Lake Public Advisory Council. The Al Bell Trail runs along the northeast side of the Preserve. It is mostly a low boardwalk. The Al Bell Trail goes across the wetlands, protecting the wetland areas from foot traffic while letting people get into the wet lands and study them. There are 3 fingers that lead from the trail to the water’s edge for sampling. The Al Bell Trail was built by volunteers and funded by the Muskegon Conservation District through a DEQ Grant.
