Copper HarborTrails Fest


Bikes, Buds, & Beers

See you September 4-6, 2020! Start planning your trip today!

COVID-19 Update: At this time trails Fest is happening! We are watching the situation and are actively planning for another awesome weekend.  2020 details will be posted later this spring.  STAY TUNED.

The Bell's Beer Copper Harbor Trails Fest takes place September 4 - September 6, 2020 in Copper Harbor, MI. The annual Labor Day Weekend event features Enduro races, short (~15 miles) and long (~30 miles) XC courses, Downhill Race, a Junior MTB race (for kids 13 & under), and a 10K Trail Run. Enjoy music, beer, and good times on Saturday and Sunday! The open/expert Enduro is part of the Lake Superior Gravity Series.  Please check the participant guide below for details from the 2019 event so you can start dreaming of what's to come in 2020!

KING & QUEEN OF THE MOUNTAIN:  Do you have what it takes to be named the champion of Copper Harbor? Compete in the long XC, Donwhill, and Expert Enduro races for a chance to become the King or Queen of the Mountain! The fastest male and female racers across all three events will take home the top prize.  But why stop there?  If you add in the 10k Trail Run, you'll also become eligible for the Beast Mode award.  Test your mettle and make a run for the top!

MUSIC!  Our 2019 Saturday headline band was the talented Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank from Duluth, with Dig Niddy opening in the afternoon!  On Sunday we were lucky to have Jeremy Rowe and the Dead Wreckoning opening and The Go Rounds out of Kalamazoo headlining to cap off a weekend of awesome riding, great beer, and rad friends. All participants and volunteers receive free entry to music, for all others a $10 donation gets you a wristband good for both nights of music. Come up for the tunes and stay for the atmosphere!

Town fills up quickly for Labor Day Weekend but if you still need a place to pitch your tent, we have limited spots available in the group campsite at Fort Wilkins!  Visit the group campsite signup page for more information - sites are only $5/person and are the cheapest place to stay in town.

Trails Fest Refund Policy: We will allow transfer of entries. Sorry, no refunds for any reason. 

Interested in winning some awesome prizes?  We're hosting our incredible raffle again with more awesome prizes in store for 2020.  We have another TC Teardrop camper, a Trek Fuel EX 9.8, Saris racks, Velocity wheels, and more already in the works... check back for more details and how you can get a ticket!
