Trail Status

Current Trail Status: Partial Wintertime Closure

There's enough snow in the woods now that our trails are more or less closed for mountain biking. It was fun while it lasted! We were out riding into the first week of January thanks to unseasonably warm temperatures courtesy of El Niño and climate change. The lake effect snow machine has finally started working which means it's time to start transitioning to skis, snowshoes, and fat bikes (on groomed trails).

Although our trails are still open for wintertime recreation, be aware that there may be trees down on the trails. We'll clear those out later in the spring when it is easier to get to them with chainsaws. Let us know if you see any and have fun out there!

We know what you're thinking: "When do the Copper Harbor Trails open in the spring?" It depends! Most years we're able to reopen in early to mid-May once the snow has melted, trees and leaves have been cleared, and the mud has dried. If the snow melts earlier than that we'll get out clearing the way as soon as possible. If winter lingers on, the opposite is true. We have to open by Memorial Day weekend for Ride the Keweenaw Enduro! The outer reaches of the Keweenaw Point Trail are usually the last to open because we have to wait for roads to become passable first.
