Manitowish Waters Bike Trail, Inc. a 501(c)(3)
The Manitowish Waters Bike Trail Committee has become aware of the need for expanded trails for bikers and walkers within the township. The Committee has reviewed all the alternatives with pertinent officials in an effort to provide a safe and efficient trail system allowing everyone access to all of the region’s destinations and attractions. The review, after extensive public input, spawned the birth of the Manitowish Waters Regional Alternative Transportation Master Plan. The North Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission has ranked the Manitowish Waters Plan the highest for the continued development of the region’s overall trail network. Phase 1, a 1.9 mile project, builds off the existing 2.5 mile trail, and is the logical next step in the eventual connection to the popular Boulder Junction/St. Germain/Eagle River/Presque Isle trails.
The Manitowish Waters Bike Trail Committee went through the grant process, thereafter determining that going the route of private funding greatly reduced the costs. The Manitowish Waters Bike Trail, Inc. a 501(c)(3) non-profit was established to provide a tax deductible opportunity for constituents to assist in the development of the community and its trail system.
