Biking the Three Eagle Trail

 share this article

The Three Eagle Trail is a 14 mile long bike path in Vilas and Oneida counties connecting Three Lakes to Eagle River. It is intended to be part of a broader network of bike trails connecting north woods communities. Unlike many bike trails in Wisconsin, the Three Eagle is not paved over the top of a retired rail line. It winds around lakes in wilderness settings and navigates wetlands on long boardwalks and bridges. Future connections to other nearby communities and destinations are in the planning stages. You can learn more about the Three Eagle Trail and future developments at their website here.
