SAUGATUCK, Mich. (AP) - Government planners from Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin are among those meeting next week to work on plans for a proposed 1,640-mile trail network around Lake Michigan.

MLive.com reports the biking, hiking and kayaking route in the four states along the shoreline of Lake Michigan is the topic of the Nov. 8-9 Lake Michigan Trail Conference at Saugatuck Center for the Arts in southwestern Michigan. More than 150 people, including planners, are expected to attend.

States and regional organizations have been independently putting together more shoreline trails in recent years.

The conference is expected to include discussion of an overall vision for the trail, creating water trail partnerships and incorporating existing routes into the trail system.

The event is free. Registration is required to attend.
