The New Year opens with lots of promise!

One trail is near completion and an even more high profile trail is in the works!

• Hard work on final trail building details and a generous response to the “Finish Up the Trail” appeal point to completing the Conover-Phelps Trail this summer. That means adding the final 2 miles at the eastern end so the trail runs 11 miles through wetlands and woodlands connecting downtown Conover to downtown Phelps.

• The formation last year of the River Trail Commission and the possibility of bringing in a professional project manager mean that a 10-mile trail connecting Eagle River to the Heart of Vilas Trail is several big steps closer to becoming a reality.

What will 2019 bring? Stay tuned!!
