The Vilas County Equestrian Trail System consists of just under 20 miles of maintained trails.  This system uses portions of Pioneer Creek, Torch Lake and Ski Hill Hunter/Hiking Trails.  These looped trails are all color coded and connected on a 6.3 mile corridor. The loops consist of the following.

Pioneer Creek (Yellow) 5.1 miles,  Torch Lake (Blue) 4.1 miles,  Ski Hill (Red) 3.6 miles and the Corridor (Green) 6.3 miles.  This Equestrian System is for riders of all abilities.  As of July 2018 parts of this system are on a shared use route.  Shared routes are horse, atv/utv, bicycle and pedestrians.  Parking is available at each loop and the Vilas County Equestrian Campground.
