One of the best ways to explore Vilas County is on two wheels, and the Heart of Vilas County Paved Bike Trail System offers riders more than 50 miles of paved trails that connect St. Germain, Sayner, Boulder Junction and Manitowish Waters and Mercer. This spectacular trail winds through the Northern Highland American Legion Forest and along crystal clear lakes and rivers.

Along the trail are many scenic rest areas with picnic spots and restrooms. There are 20 different parking areas to choose where to start your ride. You will also find swimming spots for a quick cool down in the summer months and walking trails if you want a break from two wheels.

There are several campgrounds along the trail as well as many motels and resorts on or easily accessible to the trail. From the Heart of Vilas Bike Trail you can ride right up to a restaurant for a great meal or a quick snack.

The trail system features smooth pavement suitable for all types of riders -- from flat-to-rolling terrain, manageable hills, and multiple scenic bridges. Bring your sense of adventure!
