Last summer was a great time for people to discover the completed 9 miles of the Conover-Phelps Trail.
The last 2 miles are now over 90 percent funded! All the supporters in the Yard & Mile Club, over 500 of them, have made it happen. Click here for the membership list.
The goal for 2019: Complete the trail and give people a great way to walk or ride right into Phelps' beautiful lakefront park.

Building family-friendly biking and walking trails
near the source of a Great River

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.

A grand vision – a connecting system of over 110 miles of trails.

The first leg of the Great Headwaters Trails system is the Conover-Phelps Trail.
