What this connector IS about (okay, at least to me, so naturally I assume everyone else too), is saving 30 minutes of driving for those coming from the West and South, and making it possible to bridge rides from Brighton with out cruising Grand River.
Not saying this to raise a stink, but perhaps if the value of the connector is understood, it is more likely to be accepted as a "for bikes" route

The biggest problem with bandit riding/rogue trail development out there is from the ATV crowd that has been riding there longer than we have. I really think they are mistaking ATV with bike use. It's pretty sandy out there and I think most cyclists head straight to the Blue trail.
I always purchase DNR Recreational Passports for all my vehicles. As stated above it is a big time saver for those of us to the south and west, not a matter of money.

Well yeah! It is PITA to drive there from Mt Clemens!
