Help Finish the
Conover-Phelps Trail

Despite having almost 100% of the funding needed for the last 2 miles of this 11-mile trail, two key factors stymied trail completion in 2019. We're addressing both factors this winter so the trail can be completed in 2020.  Get a trail status report for more details and download a donation form if you wish to mail in a donation to help complete the trail.

You can also donate online.

Let's get rolling on the River Trail!

TRAIL SYSTEM Wayside river1

We're working with the River Trail Commission to develop this trail connection between Eagle River and St. Germain. This summer we got a good start laying the groundwork for the project. That included starting work 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.

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.
