Great Headwaters Trails (GHT) held its third annual SepTimber Ride in partnership with the Eagle River Area Chamber of Commerce on September 9th. This fun ride started at the Tribute Brewery Co. proceeding to the Three Lakes Winery in Three Lakes via the Three Eagles Trail and then back to the brewery for a brat lunch, beer sampling, and prize drawings. In addition, a 50K road ride was added this year for road riders which traveled from Eagle River to Conover adjacent to Conover-Phelps Trail. Close to 200 riders participated and enjoyed some of the best Vilas County fall weather. GHT received proceeds of $6,000 to expand future trails in Eastern Vilas County. The event enjoyed the support of many community sponsors with cash and in-kind donations along with raffle and door prizes. Plans are already being made for next year’s event which will be held September 8th.
