Enjoy two great Northwoods rides and help GHT build more trail!

Ride with Leinie 2023 logo

On July 29 Ride with Leinie with Dick Leinenkugel returns to the Conover area of Northeast Vilas County. Explore the Conover-Phelps Trail with the group that will be led by Dick, or go further afield as part of the 40-mile road loop from Conover and Land O' Lakes, through Watersmeet in the U.P. and back to the starting point via Phelps. The post-ride gathering at Conover's Town Park features raffle and door prize drawings emceed by Dick, and a brat and beer lunch featuring several Leinenkugel's favorites.

The ninth annual SepTimber Ride on Sept. 9 offers 3 ride options between Tribute Brewing Co. in Eagle River and Three Lakes. All three rides start at Tribute and have the Three Eagle Winery at their midpoint. Rider gather back in Eagle River for a brat lunch with samples of Tribute's craft beers, and the traditional door prize and raffle drawings.

Both events provide a great time in the Northwoods and help GHT build more trails.

Annual Meeting planned for late summer

Concerns about Covid led Great Headwaters Trails to skip public annual meetings in 2020, 2021 and 2022. We hope to change that in 2023, so watch for a posting about an annual meeting this August or September.

Until then we'll put out e-newsletters 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, and our progress on developing trails in eastern Vilas County.

Our booth offers trail info, raffle tickets and us!

Get information and buy raffle tickets for a chance to win an e-bike, mountain bike, or standup paddleboard at any of our booth or tabling appearances this summer.

We'll be at the Eagle River Farmer's Market from late June to early August, Taste of Conover in late June, and other venues from Land O' Lakes to Phelps to St Germain at various times through the summer.

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 find out about our booth locations or join our efforts and help inform folks of the exciting Vilas bike trail picture, shoot us an email at ghtinfo@ghtrails.org.
