The Boulder Junction Community Foundation has awarded the North Creek Loop Trail Committee/Town of Boulder Junction a grant in the amount of $5000. The North Creek Loop Trail Project is an expansion of the Heart of Vilas County Paved Bike Trail System, recently designated a National Recreation Trail.
The project, managed by the Town of Boulder Junction, will add approximately 3.3-miles of paved trail, complete the 14-mile North Creek Loop Trail, and connect to the Heart of Vilas County Paved Bike Trail System. The new trail will run from Highway H and K along the east side of Highway H going south to North Creek Road. Trail users will then be able to continue down the newly paved North Creek Road to access the existing trail along Highway M, toward downtown Boulder Junction. It will connect two state forest campgrounds and one private campground, providing a safe way for campers, visitors and residents to come into town by bicycle.
The Boulder Junction Community Foundation is proud to act as the fiduciary for the North Creek Loop Trail. Fundraising for Phase 1 of the project is almost complete, and the North Creek Loop Trail Committee will begin fundraising for Phase 2 later this month.
