The Al Bell Trail was named for a man who has given unselfishly to environmental organizations in the Muskegon area. He was a member of the Muskegon Conservation Club and 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.
