Mercer Hike and Bike Trail Description

The Mercer Hike and Bike Trail welcomes residents to get out and get active, be closer to nature, and even get errands done without using their cars. Over a decade in the making, the trail runs 7 miles from the Mercer Chamber of Commerce, through south Mercer to the Iron/ Vilas county line. From there, it is about 2 miles to the Manitowish Waters paved trail, part of the 44-mile Heart of Vilas trail system. The trail surface varies, with three paved segments and three segments on the rustic, lightly-traveled Plunkett, Manitowish Access and Old Highway 51 roads.

 

Parking and Trail Access

The trailhead for the Mercer Bike Trail is located in a gravel lot next to Snow's Family Market along US 51.
