DDC funds multijurisdictional trail in northern Door County

The first main northern door trail will be coming soon thanks in part to a grant, and it will stretch through multiple jurisdictions in the northern municipalities of Door County. 


This multijurisdictional trail would give much needed relief to the traffic on Highway 42 and give community members opportunities to feel connected between the northern towns. The trail will run from Sister Bay to Ephraim and Gibraltar, who is working with the state to put a trail through the parks that would run up to Fish Creek. The final leg of the trail would run south to Egg Harbor and connect all of the participating towns and villages. Village of Sister Bay Administrator Julie Schmelzer talks about the trail and the big effects it will have on the areas involved. 



Destination Door County played the biggest role in this process of the trail, as they gave a $90,000 grant to the Village of Sister Bay. This grant covered the entire design of the trail, and was the leading factor of this becoming possible, Schmelzer said. 


The hope is that the design is done in six months, and the bid for the construction can be out next spring.
