CONOVER Your Starting Point of Adventure

L

ocated just 9 miles north of Eagle River, Conover is the ideal location to enjoy the conveniences of a commercialized area, yet secluded enough to experience the true “Northwoods”. Travel just 9 miles north of Conover

to reach the Wisconsin-Michigan border. With easy access to the Nicolet National Forest, one can enjoy over

600,000 acres of forest containing 1,200 lakes, 1,100 miles of trout streams, and more than 80 miles of cross-country ski trails.

Experience the delicate balance of nature at its finest! Each season will set the framework for an abundance

of recreational activities. Untarnished lakes and lush forests reach out in all directions, with the community of

Conover being the focal point. Come to true “Northwoods Country” and experience a way of life that is refreshing and exciting, yet restful and rewarding. Whether it’s hiking through a dazzling panorama of autumn colors,

snowmobiling our picturesque forests, or fishing a “hot spot” on one of our many lakes, Conover is your starting point of Adventure!

ishermen everywhere have anxiously awaited the opener of fishing. Local resorts are eager to have their cottages up and running to accommodate the fisherman. Local restaurants re-open after spring cleaning and are ready to serve appetizing and delicious meals. You haven’t experienced Wisconsin until you go out for a famous Friday Fish-Fry!

Are You Bringing A Boat to the Conover Area?

Your boat may have been exposed to non-native life forms that are not welcome in Vilas County. Animals such as Zebra Mussels or Rusty Crayfish and plants such as Eurasian Water-milfoil can easily be transported unintentionally from a contaminated lake to one that is not. Be a responsible boater. Properly clean and disinfect your boat, trailer and fishing equipment before leaving home.

The Eagle River Journey’s Marathon course travels through Conover, rain or shine. Several local lodging facilities offer discounts to participants and their families. As the snow melts and the newly planted flowers surface, the community actively awaits a new season of tourists! We welcome you to join us here in Conover.

T

he following trail information is current as of print

time; however, trails continue to be upgraded and

you should check with the chamber office for updated

information. Some trail segments, especially in the Vilas County Forest, may be a combination of hard-pack and sand that may not be suitable for biking. Vilas County bike trails are open for other dispersed recreation.

More detailed trail maps and trail information are also available from the Vilas County Forestry Department

(for Vilas County Forest Trails), or the local chamber of

commerce (for locally developed and maintained trails).

ore than bicycle wheels have been turning in the North Woods following the Wisconsin DOT’s approval of the first segment in a system network to connect towns of Three Lakes, Eagle River, St. Germain, Phelps, Conover and Land O’Lakes by 2020. This initial 3.2 mile Conover segment will utilize the CNW Rail Grade in town along US Highway 45 and head East toward Phelps. Completion estimated in 2013-14. Great Headwaters Trails, Inc. (GHT Inc.) was formed as a non-profit organization with 501(3) status and heads up the spirited long range goal for the systems development. The trailhead will be in the Conover Town Park where new, year round ADA accessible restroom facilities have been constructed. Cedar Corporation is the Conover Project Management Consultant with MSA Professional Services as the design / engineering firm. In cooperation with the SnoBuddies Snowmobile Club , Vilas County Trail Coordinator and other local agencies, it is necessary to construct three (3)

bridges over the creeks that the segment will encounter. Vilas County has been a valuable asset and active force in the overall Recreational Development Plan of its own as well as complementing the individual trail plans that are in place within all surrounding communities. The support and contributions from the private and business community will enable the segments to follow to become a reality much quicker. The members of the GHT Trails Inc. can be contacted for more information and for making a contribution to the projects under development. Great Headwaters Trails – PO Box 609 – Eagle River WI 54521 - Tel: 715 617-0080 or GHTrails@gmail.com.
