Tara Lila was created in 2007 by Eagle River landowners Richard and Amy Jo Aylward. It is the logical outcome of their purchase of small tracts of neighboring vacant land for long term conservation. Tara Lila opened it’s first public trails for snowshoeing in Winter 2009-2010. We continue to develop new trail miles and facilities as we open more of our lands to public use and enjoyment.
