Conover-Phelps Trail Description

The Conover-Phelps Trail connects its two namesake communities in northern Wisconsin along the former Chicago & North Western Railroad, providing views of woodlands and wetlands along the way. In addition to walking and biking, the trail is open for snowmobiling in the winter.

Beginning on its west end, the trail provides access to Conover Community Park and includes three scenic water crossings in its first few miles. The route currently ends at Song Hill Lane on the outskirts of Phelps.

A future phase will take the trail along County Highway K into downtown Phelps. When complete, the rail-trail will total nearly 11 miles. Even better, the trail is part of a developing 40-mile system of bicycling and pedestrian trails underway in eastern Vilas County.

Parking and Trail Access

A parking lot and restrooms are available on the west end of the trail in the Community Park (4679 Park Circle, Conover).

Conover-Phelps Trail Reviews

Though largely a straight line, this trail has the perfect northwoods mix of of prairie, woodland, and marshland. I wouldn't mind seeing it stay natural as the 2.9 miles as it is and not continue on to Phelps.
