Located just inside the spectacular Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, you’ll find the Anvil National Recreation Trail, a real gem for mountain bikers. During the winter months, the 12 miles of loops that make up the Anvil Trail provide some of the best cross-country skiing in the county. But in the summer and fall, the trails are absolutely perfect for mountain biking. A variety of trail loops range in difficulty from easy to difficult- there’s something for every mountain biker. The Anvil Trail also joins the Nicolet North Trail, adding another 15 miles of potential riding. Absolutely stunning scenery and a great ride awaits you on The Anvil Trail. There is a parking area located 8 miles west of Eagle River off of Highway 70, just east of the Anvil Lake campground entrance.
