Eagle River

   Eagle River is the original vacation and retirement destination in Northern Wisconsin. It has the conveniences of big grocery stores and a hospital, but it feels like an old town pulled off the cover of a postcard. Main street hasn't changed a ton (appearance wise anyway) over the years and still consists of small specialty stores instead of store of the big box variety. The Eagle River/Three Lakes Chain of Lakes is the world's largest freshwater lake chain with 28 lakes connected together. This was one of features that first drew vacationers to the area. It has a year round population of 1,419 and is a compact 3.20 square miles. With it's interconnected network of lakes and rivers, Eagle River made an ideal place to settle back in the old days and was the home of the first permanent Indian settlement in the Northwoods. The town was named in 1853 for the abundance of eagles on the river. Eagle River has been known as the "snowmobile capital of the world" where for 50 years the World Champion Snow Derby has been held. Eagle River has a really informative website where you can find more information about this wonderful Wisconsin town.

Nearby Bike Trails:
Anvil Lake Trail - A twelve mile biking/walking/skiing/snowshoeing route with varying terrain and difficulties. Bathrooms are available and a fee is required as it is part of the State Park System.

Eagle River - Land O'Lakes Bike Route - A 22 mile route the connects Eagle River to Land O'Lakes. The route is on the road so you should be sure to watch for vehicles. The roads are back roads and wind through pretty Northwoods forests.

Nicolet North Trails - The Nicolet North Trails are also part of the National Forest. There is a fee required. The trail system is fast and kept groomed for cross country skiing. This trail system connects to the Anvil Lake Trail.

Three Eagle Trail - A crushed limestone trail that connects Eagle River to Three Lakes. Great for walking, biking, cross country skiing and more. The trail meanders through various terrains and through the forests of Vilas County. A very nice trail.

Nearby Hiking/Cross Country Skiing Trails:
Anvil Lake Trail - See Above. The Anvil Lake Trails are multi-purpose trails.

Three Eagle Trails - Also a multi-purpose trail system.

Nicolet North Trails - Another multi-purpose trail system. See above for details

Blackjack Springs Wilderness Trail - This trail runs through the 5800 acre Blackjack Wilderness area and allows exploration of the four large springs that form the Headwaters of Blackjack Creek. It is located 7 miles northeast of town.

Franklin Lake Trail - A one mile trail along the "Avenue of Giants" between Butternut and Franklin Lakes. Some trees along this route are up to 400 years old. A parking sticker is required here.

Hidden Lakes Trail - A 13 mile walking and snowshoeing trail that goes around Butternut Lake and has a camping area for overnight hikes. The trail goes past many small lakes offering an opportunity to connect with the tranquil nature of the northwoods.

Mud Minnow Lake Trail - A 2.8 mile segment of the Vilas County Forest Trail System that winds through the deep woods of Vilas County. Not very accessible in the winter.

Snipe Lake and Ewald Lake Trails - An extensive 16.4 mile trail system with a variety of terrain. In the winter, many parts of the trail are inaccessible because roads aren't plowed and some parts of the trail are used as snowmobile trails.

Tara Lila Trails - Up to ten miles of trails on private land west of Clearwater Lake. These natural surface trails traverse uneven ground through a variety of ecosystems.

Nearby Paddling Routes:
WI River Centennial Trail Trip Two - A 23 mile paddle that takes about 9 hours from beginning to end of this segment. It goes from the River Road landing to the beginning of the Rainbow Flowage. There are some portages by the dams
Nearby ATV Trails:
Landover ATV Club Trails - A vast network of ATV trails that connect Eagle River to Upper Michigan. There are a variety of riding options ranging from paved roads to trails through the national forests. By far the largest ATV trail network in Vilas County.
Nearby Snowmobile Trails:
Sno-Eagles Trails - Over 100 miles of groomed trails that connect to everywhere you could think of going on a sled in Northern WI or Michigan. Trails are kept in great condition and are a major calling card of the area.

Three Lakes - A twelve minute drive from downtown Eagle River will take you to downtown Three Lakes. Three Lakes is a great little town. It was voted best town in America in a Disney vote a few years back. The town has a mom and pop feel and is quite cozy. There are a few places in town to grab a bite to eat, a great little bakery and my favorite, an ice cream shop. You won't feel anything other than welcomed by the great people of this little town. For the wine lovers out there, don't miss the chance to check out the Three Lakes Winery.

Saint Germain - A fifteen minute drive from Eagle River will bring you to St. Germain. St. Germain is another smaller northwoods town. It has quite a few places to eat in town, a grocery store, some rental places and a few hotels. There are also activities happening around the town all year round.

Clearwater Lake - Clearwater Lake is the home of Gold Bar Realty, Aroma's restaurant, and to some really nice people. It's basically a map dot on HWY 45 but is located just five miles from both Eagle River and Three Lakes so it is has location working in its favor.

Sugar Camp - Sugar Camp is thirteen miles south of Eagle River on HWY 17. There are a few bar and grill places in town as well as the White Stag, which has some really good food.

Conover - Fourteen miles north of Eagle River on HWY 45 lies Conover. Conover is another map dot town, but it has gas and bait and can come in handy if you live north of Eagle River and need something small. It saves some drive time.

Times are approximate. I just took the time from the center of town.
