One of the best ways to experience spring in Vilas County is on two wheels. See the forests come to life as the blossoms bloom, the leaves unfold and the last bits of snow disappear. If you like to ride in places that are flat, safe and relaxing, you have plenty of options in Vilas County. You also don’t need to bring bike along on your trip to go for a ride – shops rent quality bikes, including new, name-brand trail bikes. Temperatures can vary in the spring – it’s a good idea to dress in layers. Don’t forget gloves – they will help you stay comfortable on cool spring days. The trails can be a little soft from melting snow so you may want to stay on paved trails and roads. A few great trails to go for a gentle ride that are perfect for families: the Land O’ Lakes Bike Trail, which heads west out of Land O’ Lakes and the Presque Isle/Winchester Bike Route. You’ll find a short loop in Presque Isle ideal for small children and a road route that continues to the west, passing several lakes.
