The Great Headwaters Trails foundation’s goal is to build 40 miles of biking and walking trails in eastern Vilas County, the headwaters of the Wisconsin River. The Great Headwaters Trails system will connect the towns of Land O’ Lakes, Conover, Phelps and Eagle River and beyond to the Three Eagles Trail, Heart of Vilas Trail and Wilderness Lakes Trail.
