EAGLE RIVER - Snowmobilers can look forward to the reopening of a major connection between Eagle River and Three Lakes. The section west of Clearwater Lake on private land was closed last year.

There are other trails between Eagle River to Three Lakes. But representatives from the snowmobile clubs in each town say Trail 13 is the fastest and easiest route.

More than 40 volunteers from both towns got together last weekend, racking up more than 300 man hours to re-route the trail further away from the lake.

It now meets the landowners demands, and will be opened when Oneida County opens its trails.
