St. Germain Bike & Hike Trail Description

This 12 mile paved trail runs throughout St. Germain, connecting bicyclists, hikers and birdwatchers with the 50-mile Heart of Vilas County Bike Trail. The gentle terrain makes for leisurely walking and pedaling. The trail leads west 8 miles along Highway 70 to County Highway C, and north along County Highway C to Plum Creek Avenue. A new 4 mile section of trail extends east from the Bike & Hike Park through the downtown area and then traverses a scenic section of Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest Land. Ample free parking is available at St. Germain’s Town Park. The St. Germain Bike and Hike Trail was created to link St. Germain to the trail in the nearby town of Sayner. The trail dovetails into Vilas County’s master plan to make a continuous loop of trails through the entire county.

Parking and Trail Access

The main trailhead can be accessed at the Bike & Hike Park behind the St. Germain Chamber of Commerce at the intersection of Hwys 70 and 155.

Parking is available at the east end of the trail across from South Bay Road and on Old Hwy 70.

St. Germain Bike & Hike Trail Reviews

My boyfriend and I biked this trail in June and had a wonderful time. The paved trail was in excellent condition though, a few times, when the trail ended at a gravel road, we hoped we were going in the right direction (and were)so some more signs would be better. A black bear crossed the trail in front of us at one point which was very exciting and we watched an osprey on a nest with at least one chick! We are planning to bike the extension from Sayner to Boulder Junction on our next trip to the North Woods.
