SNOWMOBILING ADVENTURES AWAIT!
POV Resort has two well-groomed trails off North Twin Lake - the Conover Phelps Trail (7.6 miles) and the Phelps Snowmobile Club Trails (40+ miles). We are working to be directly on the trails for the upcoming season (winter 2020).
Guests are encouraged to bring their own snowmobiles or have delivered (concierge service provided through the resort via a third party) a snowmobile rental to the property - no fuss no muss! Only play! For snowmobile rentals, we recommend Trackside or the Toy Shop, both in Eagle River. Both will deliver to the resort for a fee.
The Conover Phelps Trail is a mixed trail surface. Located approximately 10 miles north of Eagle River, Wisconsin, Conover offers the perfect starting point for your snowmobiling adventure. To the north, you will meander towards Land O'Lakes, Wi and the U.P. of Michigan. To the east, you will find Phelps, the Nicolet National Forest and Iron River, Michigan. Head south and you will venture into Eagle River, Three Lakes and Sugar Camp. Westerly trails take you to Star Lake, Boulder Junction and Presque Isle. Your riding options are endless. This trail can be seen to the west of North Twin Lake above on the map. See Conover SnoBuddies website for more information.
The Phelps Snowmobile Trails are maintained by the club in Phelps in the Chequamgon-Nicolet National Forest, including trails around North and South Twin Lakes and Lac Vieux Desert Lake on the Michigan border. See their club website at www.phelpssnomobileclub.com for trail pass details - including regulations, costs, and sales locations. This trail can be seen to the east of North Twin Lake on the map below.
