Trail Conditions: Poor
Snow Cover: 5"- 7"
Date of Report: January 10, 2021
The Phelps trail system had been groomed coming into the weekend. Lack of snow to work with has left the trails in poor riding conditions. Grooming operations will be paused until more snow arrives. Trails are open and caution should be used. As a reminder, if out on the trails and you come along logging operations, Please give the right of way to the loggers and their equipment. Not only are those areas dangerous, but lack of good safe riding could lead to the trail closouers i that area or a reroute around it. Also, I know how fun back country or off trail riding can be. But here in Phelps and Vilas county, it is illeagal and could cost us the loss of trails on private and possible public property. Remeber the old AWSC saying: Stay on the Trail, It Never Fails.

Phelps is located in northeastern Vilas county,about 15 miles N.E.of Eagle River.in the heart of the Nicolet National Forest. We are away from the hustle and bustle of the mainstream, but not that far.
Corridor trail #6 passes within a block of town. Our trails are said to be the best around by both the locals and our many vistors. These trails will lead you to Eagle River, Conover, Land O’ Lake and the U.P. and Forest county to the east. Our nearly 40 miles of trails meander thru both national and private lands. These trails are groomed with a Sur-Trac by Snow Track.
We have many fine eating establishments (and beverages too) located on our trail system. There are also many motels and resorts to stay at while you are in our area.
ENJOY YOUR RIDE!!!
