Building family-friendly biking and walking trails near the source of a Great River

The Great Headwaters Trails foundation’s goal is to build 40 miles of biking and walking trails in eastern Vilas County, the headwaters of the Wisconsin River. The Great Headwaters Trails system will connect the towns of Land O’ Lakes, Conover, Phelps and Eagle River and beyond to the Three Eagles Trail, Heart of Vilas Trail and Wilderness Lakes Trail.

A grand vision – a connecting system of over 110 miles of trails.

The first leg of the Great Headwaters Trails system is the Conover-Phelps Trail.
