Trail Status

Current Trail Status: CLOSED. See details below.

The Copper Harbor Trails are closed for the season. Thank you to all who came up to visit this summer and fall! From November 15-30 we close our trails for regular firearm deer hunting season.  We share the woods with a wide variety of recreational users and during this time of year cede the woods to our other friends.  That way they can hunt in peace, and you don't have to worry about your safety on the trail.  In addition to hunting season, the Keweenaw also started receiving copious lake effect snow in mid-November. Mountain biking became nearly impossible and hiking more difficult.

If after hunting season is over the weather allows for our trails to reopen, we will let you know here.  Otherwise, plan to bring snowshoes or backcountry skis later in the winter to enjoy our trails properly for the amount of snow at this time of year!

Access updates

Flying Squirrel and Danimal are open! After many months of negotiations, the KML purchased Keweenaw County's property on Brockway Mountain. This allowed CHTC to reopen our popular jump trails. A trail easement has been placed over the entirety of our network on this property, totaling over 12 miles.

An agreement with Grant Township has been completed, allowing us to reopen Overflow! The lower portion of The Flow and the entirety of Daisy Dukes are also covered under this agreement.  We appreciate everyone's help and especially the Grant Township Board for seeing this to completion.

Stairway to Heaven, Der We Went, and Here We Go are now hiking only at the request of the private landowner in this area. Please respect their wishes and do not bike on these trails.

Downtown is closed to all users until further notice at the wishes of a separate private landowner.
