A plan for a bike trail to connect Phelps and Conover has gotten a financial boost.
The DNR’s Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Fund is awarding the project $120,000. That's about $40,000 more than it initially gave.
Great Headwaters Trail spokesperson Jeff Currie says it will help fund the second portion what should eventually be 11 miles of trail.
“The section it was applied for is the middle section that goes from Muskrat Creek Road, to where Songhill Lane meets County Highway K, on railroad grade that runs north of Highway K.”
