TRAIL SYSTEM Wayside river1

We're working with the River Trail Commission to develop this trail connection between Eagle River and St. Germain. Last summer we got a good start, working with key stakeholders  and getting a professional feasibility study done. Click here for more details.

Next step is to raise funds to build Phase 1! If you can help, download a donation form. Or donate online!

Additional Ways to Help

DONATE menu - boat donation

We no longer used our boat and thought why not donate the boat to a worthy cause. We believe in bike trail development in Vilas County. As a result, we thought what better organization to donate it to than the Great Headwaters Trails Foundation. We felt it was a win-win for everyone.
