Open year-round, daylight hours, weather permitting.

For families looking to take younger children riding, the St. Germain Bike & Hike Trail is ideal with its gentle terrain for easy pedaling. This 12 mile, family friendly, paved trail runs throughout St. Germain, connecting bicyclists, hikers and birdwatchers with 45 miles of paved Vilas County trails. It’s one of the most beautiful paved trail systems in the Midwest and the gentle terrain makes for leisurely walking and pedaling. 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. The trail committee was careful to minimize any impact on the area’s top-notch snowmobile trails. The finished trail is a result of successful cooperation between a number of organizations; including the Department of Transportation, Wisconsin Valley Improvement Corporation, Northland Pines School District, Town Board of St. Germain, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the Bo-Boen Snowmobile Club, and St. Germain Area Chamber of Commerce, Inc.This 12 mile paved bicycle trail can be accessed at the Bike & Hike Park behind the St. Germain Chamber of Commerce (Highways 70 & 155). From that point 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 to a parking lot across from South Bay Road and further west to a parking area on Old Highway 70.
