Upcoming Events


The Copper Harbor Trails system hosts several exciting events throughout the summer months, from races to clinics to fun rides and everything in between.  Ride the Keweenaw, Big Boy Clinic, Women's Weekend Clinic, Run the Keweenaw, and Copper Harbor Trails Fest support the trails with either all or a portion of the proceeds going to Copper Harbor Trails Club efforts to expand, improve, and maintain our world-class trail system. Have fun on the trails while supporting our work!

Other events include group rides, trail work days, and a couple of get-togethers thrown in for good measure.  The best way to keep up is to follow the Copper Harbor Trails Club Facebook page. Otherwise read on for the main events!

May 22 - May 22


Help us clear our trails for our season opening! We need to chainsaw downed trees and remove debris before we can get the bikes on the trails. After that, leaf blowing will commence to allow the mud time to dry. It's a huge task and we need your help! Plan to meet at Trails End Campground west of town at 10 AM where we'll assign you a section of trail to clear. There is no rain date for this event, and we'll only cancel if it's a downpour.  See you there!

May 27 - May 29

Come explore all of the exciting mountain bike trails the Copper Country has to offer during Ride the Keweenaw!  Memorial Day Weekend 2022 also brings our first Enduro race of the season and plenty of fun times as we host our season opening.  Plan your trip today!

June 3 - June 5

The premier men's clinic in the Midwest!  Our Big Boy Clinic will teach you how to become a better mountain biker, whether you're starting out from scratch or have been riding since before mountain bikes were a thing.  Everyone has bad habits to bust and efficiency gains to discover, and our professional coaches are here to help make your riding that much more fun.

June 10 - June 12

Learn how to be a mountain bike instructor! Students will receive comprehensive training on the fundamental elements of mountain biking so that they are prepared to teach others on how to improve their riding. Level 1 participants will create a foundation for teaching at mountain bike clinics including personal riding skills, proper form, systematic methods, and terminology. Hosted as a collaboration between the Bike Instructor Certification Program and CHTC on our trails, this is an excellent opportunity to hone your coaching skills right here in Michigan!

July 8 - July 10

Lace up your running shoes and hit the trails!  Compete in several exciting races throughout the weekend, ranging from hill climbs to 10ks to a burly 50k trail run across most of our trails.  If you thought climbing up Brockway was hard on a bike, try doing it twice on foot!

July 29 - July 31

Our Women's Weekend Clinic is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2022!  Organized specifically for women by women, our Women's Weekend clinic has helped out hundreds of people boost their confidence and become better riders.  Join the crew and learn why we're the top women's clinic in the Midwest. Space is limited and fills up almost instantly.  Be ready!

September 2 - September 5

Races! Beer! Music! Food! Fun! The 29th Annual Keweenaw Mountain Lodge Copper Harbor Trails Fest returns for Labor Day weekend 2022.  Grab your mountain bike (or running shoes!) and come north for some of the most challenging races around.  There's something for everyone, from XC racers to Downhill junkies.  It's a family reunion of mountain biking and we hope to see you there!
