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.
An extension of the trail was completed in 2021 along County Highway K into downtown Phelps, bringing the rail-trail to a total of 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 is available at either end of the trail. On its east end, parking is available near the intersection of County Highway K and Song Hill Lane in Phelps. On its west end, a parking lot and restrooms are available at the Community Park (4679 Park Circle) in Conover.
