The Copper Harbor Trails are open! Conditions are variable across the system depending on the weather. Expect dusty conditions when dry, and muddy when wet. Our trails do not close for rain.

Be aware that during the summer, windstorms commonly knock down trees (see photo right).  Ride within your abilities and be on the lookout! We will make an effort to clean up downed trees as we are made aware of them. Give us a heads up if you find anything out there!

Access updates

Flying Squirrel and Danimal are open! After many months of negotiations, the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge 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.
