When it comes to bicycling, Vilas County is a land of possibilities. One of the biggest challenges new riders face here is where to ride first—there are great options that will take you throughout Wisconsin’s Northwoods. Families will find gentle paved paths so they can explore forests and perhaps a scenic beach or cute downtown restaurants and shops. Long-haul bike tourers can experience the thrill of traversing a vast national forest by bike. Trail lovers can leave the roads behind and follow their hearts deep into the northern Wisconsin wilderness. Mountain bikers can dial into our challenging single route track. Fat-tire bike riders will find four seasons of fun, including trails groomed for winter biking.
These biking options are virtually everywhere in the county and they are easy to find. Our free Map It Vilas County trails app details all the trails in our county and will help you navigate your way throughout Wisconsin’s Northwoods.
