Conover-Phelps Trail Description

The Conover-Phelps Trail will connect its two namesake communities in northern Wisconsin along the former Chicago & North Western Railroad. Currently, nearly 3 miles of the rail-trail are paved from Conover Community Park to Muskrat Creek Road. The trail includes three scenic water crossings and views of woodlands and wetlands. In addition to walking and biking, the trail is open for snowmobiling in the winter.

Another 5.5 miles of the routecontinuing the trail eastward to Song Hill Lane—is anticipated to be finished the summer of 2016. A future phase (planned for 2017) 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.

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.
