Help us build trails

Also look below for other ways to give.

Help Finish the
Conover-Phelps Trail

Building the last 2 miles will complete the 11-mile trail connecting Conover's Community Park to Phelps' lakefront park on North Twin Lake. Thanks to all the members of the Yard & Mile Club, and a recent $150,000 DNR grant, the project is over 90% funded. Help us get to 100% so the trail can be completed next summer!

Additional Ways to Give

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.
