(La Porte, IN) - The new trail at Stone Lake in La Porte is going to be extended.
The extension will take the trail from the Stone Lake beach house past the new kayak launch and Cummings Lodge. The route will then go through some wooded areas and end at the Waverly Road parking lot at the channel that connects Stone Lake and Pine Lake.
La Porte Parks Superintendent Mark Schreiber says a state grant will pay 80-percent of the estimated $300,000 cost.
“What this will do will allow people to be able to safely go from ski beach all the way over to the beach house without having to walk along what is a fairly narrow walkable area,” Schreiber said.
Schreiber said bids for extending the trail should go out in the spring, with construction slated for next year.
