A bike trail project has netted a $15,000 matching grant to complete a short stretch of trail. 

The Three Eagle Trail runs from Three Lakes to Eagle River.  It’s being extended by less than a quarter mile through a congested part of Eagle River to the old train depot.  The grant comes from Tara Lila, a company that specializes in land conservation and trail construction.  It will match community donations up to $15,000 in hopes of covering the $30,000 cost of the construction.
