2022 Events

Two great organized rides coming up in 2022

Ride with Leinie comes to the Conover-Phelps Trail on July 30 and the eighth annual SepTimber Ride will offer 3 ride options between Tribute Brewing Co. in Eagle River and Three Lakes.

Watch for more details on both in the New Year!

Our booth features trail info and lets you meet some of us.

Our volunteers have staffed booths and displays in Eagle River, Conover and Phelps from spring through fall every year since 2010.

We always find that people enjoy talking about and learning about the fast-growing picture of biking opportunities in the Vilas area.

If you want to join our efforts and help inform folks of this exciting picture, shoot us an email at ghtrails@gmail.com.

Annual Meeting coming up in 2022

Concerns about Covid have led Great Headwaters Trails to skip public annual meetings this 2020 and 2021. We hope to change that in 2022, so watch for a posting about an annual meeting in August.

Until then we'll put out e-newsletters (get the November 2021 issue) as well as press releases to inform the public of our trail progress.

Check out the rest of this website to learn about our officers and board members, the work of our hard working volunteers, our progress on developing trails in eastern Vilas County.

Two great years of a memorable event

The 2018 and 2019 Don Gillum Memorial Bike and Hike events were wonderful ways to enjoy the Conover-Phelps Trail and to remember key trail builders like Don Gillum. The events raised over $5,000 for Relay for Life of the Northwoods and over $5,000 for development and care of the trail itself. We thank everyone who has made this great event happen, the Gillum family, all the planners and volunteers , and all DGMBH participants.
