Keweenaw Peninsula Trail Report – 02/11

KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Keweenaw Trail Reports​ –

Good morning! How many of you were able to enjoy all the fresh snow that fell across Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula this past weekend?

Is anyone waking UP to the beautiful views of trails like this groomed by Glenn Rowe?!? These photos were taken on Trail 3 between Toivola and Painesdale! Huge thank you to Glenn Rowe and ALL the Keweenaw groomer operators for their dedication to laying the best trails out for riders!

Off trail conditions are the best they’ve been in years!

Have you tried the Groomer Tracker app yet? If not, check it out so you can always see which trails have been groomed and when.

Conditions have been amazing in the Keweenaw! So thankful winter decided to make an entrance with such big snowfall dumpings! M❄️RE is on its way all week also!

Keep the SN❄️W dances going! ❄️💃

Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula

Covered Drive Road on the way to Freda, Michigan. This road is serene & refreshing in the spring & summer, bursting with color during fall, and feels like you're entering Narnia in winter.

It is called Covered Drive Road.

I miss this place.....

Naive question: is this the same Rd just west of Houghton? I'm not from the U.P. but my husband's father was, we vacation there quite often. My fondest memory from covered Rd was when my husband ( just dating at the time) maybe 14 years ago asked me to to be his one and only...girlfriend, very romantic!

My great uncle was from Freda.

Most of it is on an old railroad grade. That's why it is fairly level with gentle curves. My father always referred to it as the Green Road.

Many trips taken down that road...

Rebecca, look familiar?

I’m curious to know if the side by sides and 4 wheelers have exhaust issues as well or is it just sleds that are the focal point ?

If aftermarket cans are a problem. The law should be enforced.

Cans are becoming a Huge problem here in central Wisconsin

Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula

I can't get over how beautiful this place is. ♥️

A great way to explore the Copper Country is by mountain bike. Bikes can get you places that are impossible to reach by car. Not into biking but still want to see the amazing views? No problem! Getting out and hiking is another great way to experience the beauty of the Keweenaw.

Upcoming event:
Copper Harbor Trails Fest
The annual Bell's Beer Copper Harbor Trails Fest takes place August 31st - September 1st, 2019 in Copper Harbor, MI.

We have plenty of trails, for all skill-levels and ages.
