Boulder Junction is hoping to rally enthusiasm for its growing bike trail system this summer.
Chamber of Commerce Director Theresa Smith says the original Boulder Junction trail was built in 1994 and has been expanding ever since. Right now there are 29 miles of paved trail connecting Boulder Junction with Sayner and St. Germaine. And she says there’s more to come.
A new community center in Boulder Junction opened its doors today. For supporters of the project, it was a long time coming.
It was standing room only at the ribbon cutting as more than 200 people packed the new community center. But five years ago it wasn’t clear if the center would ever be built. Voters rejected an earlier proposal for a more expensive building. With the final price tag coming in under budget at around $2.1 million, Town Chair Charlie Spencer says the investment will pay off.
Cyclists can now enjoy over 30 miles of paved bike trails in Vilas County.
The town of Boulder Junction has finished an expansion of the bike trail system that connects Boulder Junction, Sayner and St. Germaine. Boulder Junction Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Theresa Smith is hoping the expanded trail will be a boost for tourism.
