There are some very short sections of the trail that are paved.

Users connecting from the Section 9 trailhead in Eagle River to the Tara Lila trailhead in Three Lakes would be using a road route. 

Parking is available at Don Burnside Park in Three Lakes. This is a paved lot with handicap-accessible restrooms. Users need to cross Superior Street to access the trail.

The parking area off of Hwy 45 just north of downtown Three Lakes is a large gravel lot. The trail is easily accessible from this location. There is also access to a cross-country ski trail that is barricaded in the summertime.

Trail parking at Tara Lila in Three Lakes is a gravel lot a short distance from the trail. There is a gate but it is wide enough for a wheelchair to pass through.

There is a trailhead located in downtown Eagle River next to the Eagle River Depot Museum. Designated handicap parking and handicap-accessible restrooms are available. On-road access to trail.

An additional trailhead in downtown Eagle River can be found just south of Hwy 70. This is a dirt road, with parking alongside the road.
