Welcome To Tara Lila

Hello! Welcome to Tara Lila LLC's home on the Web. This page is a good place to start to learn a bit about us and to familiarize yourself with this site. News and info pertaining to events like Tara Lila's annual Snowshoe Celebration are posted in the sidebar (left) and announcements/news are posted below. Scroll down the page for an introduction to Tara Lila. 

*News Flash:  Work is completed on the Sundstein Road Unit major trail expansion and new south entrance and parking area. The park’s expanded trail network will be featured at Snowshoe Celebration 7.  Updated Sundstein map brochures are now availiable at the park unit’s kiosks, the Eagle River Chamber of Commerce, and to view download here and on our Facebook page. Yeah!

*News Flash:  Ripco Road Unit 11x17 Map brochure pages are availiable to download on the Maps and Trails page in PDF format. Brochures are available at the park unit’s kiosk at 7550 Ripco Road, Eagle River WI.

*News Flash: After perfoming some trials with the Three Eagle Trail’s large roller style  groomer, Tara Lila has aquired an ABR Trails (Ironwood MI) roller groomer. The new roller is in addition to the Wild Cat groomer we picked up a couple weeks ago in Spooner, Wi. The ABR roller is twice the width of the Wild Cat. With the two rollers we can efficiently groom all the Fatbike at our Ripco unit and other trails at the Sundstein Rd and Section 9 Rd units. 

Snowshoe Celebration 7 Comes Home

All attention is focused on preparations for Snowshoe Celebration VII and the grand re-opening of Tara Lila’s first park unit at the south end of Sundstein Road.  The nearly 650 acre unit, spanning the townships of Sugar Camp and Three Lakes, is just a few miles south of Eagle River via Sundstein Road. The official address of the Sundstein Unit is 128 Sundstein Rd. Eagle River WI.  (The new fall/winter entrance is 1/4 mile south of 128 Sundstein. Follow the signs...)

Tara Lila invites you to join us on Feb. 3 2018 to celebrate with the same family friendly fun, food, and frolic as in previous years. We have more to celebrate this year than ever before.  (We say this every year but this year it is exceptionally true.)

Just a few short weeks after last year’s highly sucessful Snowshoe Celebration 6 Tara Lila already knew where the next year’s event would be held. The expansion of our Sundstein Road park unit would mark a significant milestone in the evolution of Tara Lila. It would mark the completion of major development of Tara Lila’s 3 park units.

We wanted to address a shortcoming in the “user friendliness” of the Sundstein unit while greatly expanding trail lengths and potential routes. By creating a new fall/winter entrance and parking area we are able to bring trail users to the doorstep of the best parts of the park. In addition, the owners of Tara Lila chose to significantly expand public access to more acreage north of the Three Eagle Trail. The combination of centralized access and public access to a broader range of the propety’s acreage were central to completion of the park. 

Prior to the park’s reconfiguration, hikers & ’shoers had a lengthy walk just to get to the Red Tara Trail, the hardwood forests, and the eastern areas of the park. 

The expansion has created sevral new trails. As always, we have relied on color to define our trails. New trails include the Blue, Orange,  Violet, and Sun Tara trails. Green Tara has been expanded to circumnavigate the park  with the addition of it’s phenomenal northern tier. Red Tara’s East and West legs have been expanded and a more coherent loop has been created. The old “rope banister” has been integrated into the Orange Tara Trail.

The Violet Tara Trail is an expansion of the former Maintenance Trail and now runs from the Sundstein Road kiosk all the way to White Tara.

The Sun Tara Trail explores the far northeastern potion of the park and include a breathtaking vista at it’s farthest reach.

Blue Tara is a rustic trail that descends via switchbacks into the lowlands at the heart of the park. There it fords a narrow drainage amidst a dark cedar swamp.

Additional cut trails allow for a virtually endless number of routes and loops.   

Existing logging roads were improved, new trail was cleared,  existing trail was smoothed, a parking lot and entrance road were excavated, a kiosk was built, and trail grooming equipment was dedicated to maintain the trail system.  

Construction is finished and the trail systems are complete at the Sundstein Road Unit. The new park unit is open but a grand re-opening is scheduled for Feb. 3, 2018 in conjunction with Snowshoe Celebration 7.



 Introducing Tara Lila

What is Tara Lila LLC ? We are a small, family-owned company operating in the borderlands between Vilas and Oneida Counties in Northeastern Wisconsin's scenic Northwoods. 

With help from our friends, we are active in the develpment of public-access recreational trails on several woodland parcels we own in the townships of Lincoln, Three Lakes, and Sugar Camp.

The original idea for Tara Lila was to take land we had purchased for conservancy, build low-impact trails on that land, and open the trails to public access. In the process of that we found ourselves involved in a number of things. A partial list  would include the following activities: 


Snowshoeing Green Tara Trail at Tara Lila's Three Lakes Unit

  • Purchasing/holding woodland acreage for long term conservancy 
  • Opening our lands to public access through the creation of wilderness/snowshoe trail systems
  • Working with regional trail groups to promote, develop and preserve silent sport trail infrastructure 
  • Creating events like Snowshoe Celebration which publicize Tara Lila and create a draw for the area's tourism based economy
  • Supporting area non-profits directly or through creative multi-target matching grants 

Great. We're Interested In Visiting Tara Lila and Enjoying The Trails. Can You Tell Us More About That? 


To date, all of our wilderness/snowshoe trail development has been adjcent to and accessible from the Three Eagle Trail - the area's premiere bicycle-pedestrian trail between the sities of Eagle River and Three Lake. 

More information about our trails including trail maps -can be found here on our Trails Page. We welcome you to discover one of Eagle River's best kept secrets.  

These are rustic wilderness trails and you are using our facilities at your own risk. To help assure your safety and enjoyment we ask that you take some time to become familiar with our Park Rules.
