After a snowshoe outing on the Sam Campbell Memorial Trail, the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest Service came to a mutual agreement with the Three Lakes Historical Society regarding a scheduled selective tree harvesting along the trail.
News of the timber sale wasn’t sitting well with the society and other residents of the town who enjoy hiking, biking and snowshoeing on the 1.7-mile trail near Old Military Road in Three Lakes.
The site was donated to the U.S. Forest Service and set aside for use as a nature trail. The trail was named in honor of nature enthusiast, philosopher and writer Sam Campbell.
