The long-awaited Conklin Bay Trail and Boardwalk section of the Syracuse-Wawasee Trails is becoming a reality.  

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Monday afternoon.

The state’s Next Level Trail Program was the final funding needed for the project, contributing a $1.1 million grant.

Once completed, the segment of trail will connect the Wawasee Area Conservancy Foundation education center to Syracuse, going along State Road 13.
