Lately I have been having the chance to spend sometime in the Eagle River area. I have been trying to find different trails, beaches and any outdoor activities to do especially with the summer like temps and sunshine we have been having. I enjoy biking and running and because of that I have been exploring new areas. Yesterday I found a neat bike trail that was built from Eagle River to Three Lakes. It actually begins a few miles outside of the city of Eagle River but there are plans for it to be extended into Eagle River with the “next phase”.
There are no motorized vehicles allowed on the trail but you can bike, hike or run. There were even a few people out with their pups and I saw people of all ages.. It is not a strenous trail as it is mostly flat with a few rolling hills. The whole trail back in forth is just over 17 miles. You can add or subtract by doing a few different things. You can add miles by starting at Sundstein Rd in Eagle River or by going around Three Lakes. You can easily go less miles by turning around at any point. An easy turn around point is from the start off of Sundstein to where it hits Hwy 45. This is also the route for cross country skiing or skating which you could enjoy when the white stuff begins to cover the grounds!

Here is a map of the trail:
If you live close hope you can check it out! Have a great weekend and enjoy the weather!
