Grant supports second hiking trail in Santa Claus

From Local Sources

SANTA CLAUS — A grant from the Spencer County Community Foundation will help Trails of Santa Claus Inc. with its current fundraising campaign for a second trail, Lincoln Discovery, that will link its first trail to Lincoln Parks.

The group’s first trail connects Christmas Lake Village to Yellig Park.

Trails of Santa Claus is non-profit organization tasked with closing the gap between funds already committed to build the four biking and hiking trails that will connect various attractions in and around Santa Claus.

Currently, more than 87 percent of the estimated $10 million has been raised through various state and federal grants and private donations. When complete, the trails project will bring increased tourism, more retail establishments and safe recreational opportunity for Santa Claus residents.
