Keweenaw Trail Systems
Updated: March 1, 2011
With six trail systems within 100 miles and three of those systems separated by just five miles, riders in the Keweenaw are a lucky bunch.
The information provided here is short and sweet. We've provided a brief description of the individual trail systems along with clickable geo coordinates to get you to the trail heads and links to trail maps. Note that most trail systems also provide very good on-trail maps and signage to keep you on course.
Great trails don't just happen. Lots of blood, sweat, tears goes into the construction of each inch of trail. And cash. Though constructed mainly with volunteer labor (Copper Harbor being the notable exception), it takes money to purchase tools and fuel. In addition, a number of local organizations are working to ensure that land access is preserved (development happens everywhere, including the Keweenaw), and those efforts don't come cheap. If you enjoy the riding, consider making a contribution to the groups that maintain the trails or to those that make it possible for the trails to exist in the first place. As we all know, trails disappear.
