Hike Eagle River


Vilas County is home to over 240,000 acres of public land, including some of the most beautiful and extensive trail systems in the Northwoods. Hikers will find trails of varying difficulty and lengths, suitable for almost all ages and physical abilities. For birders and wildflower enthusiasts, the Spectacle Lake-Kentuck Lake Trail offers 2.5 miles of flat land along the old Thunder Lake Railroad bed. Experienced hikers can find a challenge along the extensive Snipe Lake and Ewald Lake trail systems, which offers rolling terrain dotted with a variety of wildlife habitats and timber types. The 13-miles Hidden Lakes Trail includes a pair of camping opportunities for hikers who want to take their time around Butternut Lake and several other lakes. Get maps for all of these area trails here.
