Vilas County has some of the best snowmobile trails in the Northwoods, and we have a free tool that will help you explore them! For several years, the Map It Vilas County trails app has aided silent sports enthusiasts, paddlers and hunters as they navigate our multisport trails. This month, with the help of our clubs, we added our snowmobile trails to the app! Read on and find out how our app can help you plan and navigate a snowmobiling adventure this winter.


Why should I use the app?

The app has all the public trails in Vilas County mapped with GPS. What does this mean? When you are on the trail, you can open this mobile app and see your exact location on the trails. It’s a great tool when you’re unsure of where you are or want to check your progress, and it’s a nice complement to the printed maps published by our clubs.

What communities does the app cover?

The app includes trails throughout the 12 communities of Vilas County, including Boulder Junction, Conover, Eagle River, Lac du Flambeau, Land O’ Lakes, Manitowish Waters, Minocqua Area, Phelps, Presque Isle, Sayner-Star Lake, St. Germain and Winchester.


What do the trail colors signify?

The trail colors on the interactive map corresponding to the club trails that make up the network in our county. Together, the clubs build and maintain more than 700 miles of trails and keep them open for public recreation.


Does the app work offline?
