This part of the Vilas County Forest Hunter/Hiking Trail System winds through rolling hills and features mature natural stands of red and white pine as well as aspen, oak, and spruce. Portions of the Torch Lake Road and River Road are plowed during the winter, giving access to the trails. The rolling terrain with the variety of habitats and proximity to the Wisconsin River make this area an excellent choice for wildlife viewing. A portion of this trail along with connecting corridors to Ski Hill Trails and Pioneer Creek Cross-country Ski Trails, has created almost 20 miles of signed equestrian trails. Additional trail enhancements are planned.
Portions of the Equestrian Trail temporarily closed and detoured.
Portions of the Equestrian Trail between River Road and Torch Lake Road in Conover have been temporarily closed and detoured until further notice. The detour adds a distance of 2.01 miles from River Road to Torch Lake Road.
