Keweenaw Peninsula Trail Report – 03/25

KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Keweenaw Trail Reports​ –

Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula’s trails are definitely still looking good!

Dave Gerlach and crew sent us these photos and this trail report:

“Great job on the trails! Down to Krupp’s and up to Copper Harbor and everything was extremely rideable! Trails were groomed, flat and fast. It’s getting tough getting into gas stops but small price to pay for this great late season riding. See ya next year!”

Looking at the forecast, however, it appears we are in for another couple of days of above freezing temps…… Grooming will not occur when temps are above freezing.

If you are not familiar with the area, the photos on the grassy areas are on top of Brockway at the lookout!

Thank you so much for the photos and report Dave! …

Close enough on loose gravel. Unless you are looking to become another selfie statistic

Stopped here the first week of June!

Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula

😎Picture this: you're ripping down The Flow, one of the first trails built in this style literally anywhere. It's early 2019 and the trail has been beat up by thousands of riders over nearly a decade of use. An eroded, boulder-strewn berm lies just ahead through the undergrowth. You test your brakes. The berm comes into view... and you effortlessly shoot through the corner into the next fiery straightaway. Berm after berm... all perfect. You rejoice: The Flow has been returned to its former glory. Rock Solid Trail Contracting, LLC. expects to wrap up construction this week. Ride on. 🤘🚵‍♀️ ... See MoreSee Less

Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula

World-Record Holding Copper Slab

The A. E. Seaman Mineral Museum located in Houghton, Michigan has the largest public display of minerals from the Great Lakes region and is the official Mineral Museum of Michigan. The world's best collection of Michigan minerals from around the world are part of its collection and exhibits. The University of Michigan mineral collection is held by the museum under the Michigan Mineral Alliance. And, the world-record holding 19-ton copper specimen is on exhibit in the front Copper Pavilion.

Here is a photo of the copper slab, discovered by divers off the shores of the Keweenaw Peninsula, Great Sand Bay, being lifted from Superior by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers barge. (diver Bob Barron)

Check it out at the A.E. Seaman Mineral Museum.

Mary Gibbons

I thought the record holder was the 28.2 Ton slab pulled from a couple land owners property up there? collectorsedge.com/blogs/news/collectors-edge-minerals-purchases-the-worlds-largest-float-copper-...

Megan Winn wanna go?

I remember when this was found and the people who found it. You would of never thought it was copper from the underwater video.

Went to museum yesterday. It was worth the visit.

Awesome! How much would that be worth in todays copper prices?

Beautiful picture!

This museum is worth a visit. We never miss the opportunity to return when we visit the Copper Country.

Is the the float copper that was on a flat bed trailer in Sidnaw and for sale back in 1978?

Megan Winn wanna go?

We might be seeing Bob in a few weeks!👍❤️

Great place to visit.

Amazing photo

Krupps Resort

Hi everyone 🙂 Just to clear some thing up for I have been receiving phone calls & messages about this. I bought Krupp's Resort From Richard Krupp in February of last year. Richard & Sandy had sold the Krupp's Mini-mart 16 years ago (I believe it is now) - I am not a daughter or family member of the Krupp's. I bought the Resort in February not the mini-mart, I can not transfer calls to the mini mart nor give you selling details about the mini-mart. We have different phone numbers. I can tell you Jim and Deb are so awesome and so very kind. So no the Resort is not for sale, the Mini-Mart is for sale and is looking for someone to continue on making the yummy pasties! Thank you and hope you all have a good day 🙂 ⛄🌻 ... See MoreSee Less
