Western & Southern UP Trail Reports

So this what some loggers did without permission from the DNR. Your looking south on trail 3 at the rt.38 crossing. They could have waited one more week but decided to ruin our trail early.

Does anyone on this site realize that most of the trails are on timberland because the loggers let the trails cross their property

The people bitching about this. I hope they shut the trail down and don’t allow access next winter so the loggers can work all winter and put food on their tables

They log 365 days a year. And if you logged for a living you would do the same thing.

Wow someone has no respect for the time and money spent on the trails. They jumped the gun a week and a half to early with no regard to riders or clubs or the DNR

That is being done all over the UP not just there

Hopefully they will be fined.

Messing with the DNR is never good. They’ll regret it.

DNR should issue a $10,000.00 dollar fine

I came up on the dozer on trail 3 while he was doing this on March 15th. Dennis Smith

Happened on trail 13 near twin lakes too. Last I heard the DNR "told them to fix it"

Its not that bad, i am riding it !@@

I hope the DNR fines the hell out of them.

Loggers save certain sections to log in the spring of the year when the frost laws come on. So the can haul there logs on all weather routes

What’s the name of the company that did this?

It was a bit ruff made it but dam sure in a hurry to cut that wood.

Hope your club can get some answers on this so it don't happen again!! And to think with all the problems because of long tracks, cans, and speeding thus is the opposite.

Same on trail 8, it was horrible

Plowed the trail up?

that’s probably going to cost them a hefty fine, the DNR and NFS are pretty particular about land use agreements

Unbelievable

Chase Wolf Randy Wolf be carful and watch for stuff

Charge them $$$$

Wow! Is there any kind of penalty for that? The Trails in da UP are more important than anything else .

That hotel should never have been built there. It spoils a once beautiful view of the bridge.

Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula

#historyMuch of the eastern 400 block of Calumet's Sixth Street has changed dramatically since 1910. That year, this street was populated by many people and businesses, including (ordered left to right in the photo):

422 6th: Fred Larson, manager of the Paivalehti Finnish-language newspaper, lived here with his family and boarders. Standing (yellow).

420 & 418 6th: Mrs. Louisa (Lenzi) Lesh's grocery store and boardinghouse. Mrs. Lesh catered to Croatian and Slovenian tenants. A tailor also occupied a basement storefront. Mrs. Lesh is best known as the woman who distributed gifts with Anna Clemenc on the stage at the Italian Hall the day of the disaster. #WomensHistoryMonth

416 6th: Residence of Peter Jurich's family and boarders. A saloon occupied the basement.

414 6th: Louis G Sewnig residence. Louis owned Louie's Buffet on 5th St.

412 6th: Blacksmith Jacob D. Kaiser and daughters Mamie and Susie lived above Jacob's blacksmith shop (set back from the street, not visible in photo).

410 6th: A dwelling above a basement saloon appears vacant.

408 6th: A meat market was downstairs. Upstairs, an apartment housed Elias Opland and Thomas Tourison.

406 6th: A saloon occupied the street side, with a house behind it. Thomas Bima occupied the house, while Italian boarders stayed in rooms above the saloon.

404 6th: A saloon with rooms above.

400-402 6th: The Annex Hotel, which also operated a saloon and restaurant inside the hotel.

After a fire in the Michigan Auto Company auto storage garage on 7th Street around 1924, proprietor Paul Pawler started buying up much of this property on 6th Street. According to his nephew, first he converted Mrs. Lesh's large building into auto storage, installing a hand-operated car elevator. Other nearby buildings were removed, and the Locatelli Construction Company did the concrete work for the oldest part of the existing building on the site. The Michigan Auto Company showroom opened there, displaying Diamond T trucks, Chrysler, Plymouth, DeSoto, and other automobiles, Johnson engines, and Chris Craft and other boats. In later years, the building expanded to the south, and eventually Mrs. Lesh's building to the north succumbed as well. Today, Calumet Machine operates in the Michigan Auto Company building, and all the buildings pictured here except the Larson home are #MissingintheCopperCountry.

How come the same cars are in both pictures? Photo shopped?

It must have had a fire as the wooden homes wiyh businesses under them have been replaced by bricks.

Great, interesting.
