Keweenaw Peninsula Trail Report – 03/26

KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Keweenaw Trail Reports​ –

The forecast includes a chance for light rain in the Keweenaw and warmer temps again for a few days. Trails are still holding up well for late season riding, however getting in and out of any towns become increasingly more difficult as the roads are bare. It is very difficult to pass through Houghton/Hancock.

Jay Piotrowski and family spent the day riding trails in Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula and this is the report he gave of the trails they were on……

“Riding was great today only bad spot was 134 spur to High Rock. Looks like groomer may have gotten stuck up at high rock last time they groomed. Other than that 134 was flat and fast. 3 from Vansville to Copper was great ….there was still enough snow and water in Copper Harbor for my scratchers to throw and keep me cool getting into town. 124 was great. Around 7pm trails were getting pretty loose. Saw a groomer crossing 41 southbound in Ahmeek. Fingers crossed rain doesn’t hit hard and temps stay down.”

Thanks Jay for taking the time to update us with a trail report. If anyone else is out riding the area please feel free to share a report on conditions and/or photos!

Conditions as of March 25, 2019:

Most snowmobile trails from Twin Lakes to Copper Harbor are in spring condition. The edges on the trails are soft, please use caution. Trail 122 has several flooded areas and will be closed for the rest of the season. The west and east Lac La Belle Loops (132) will not be groomed, due to some icy stretches on hills that have made it unsafe to operate a groomer on. Those trails are still open to snowmobile traffic. As the season works towards a close, the grooming operations will be adjusted on a daily basis to accommodate the safety of our groomer operators, so riders should expect varying conditions on the trails.
Trail 120 and 121 that goes around Freda is closed for the season and will not be reopened, as well as Trail 3 from Dollar Bay to Lake Linden. You can still get to Dollar Bay by way of Hancock and to Lake Linden by way of Calumet. Trail 133 is closed for the season for logging.

Please stay on the trails, STAY OFF THE ICE, respect private property, do not drink and drive, and above all else, drive safely. The signs on the trails are there for rider’s safety so please DO NOT remove or destroy them.

Snowfall & Weather:
Snowfall in the Keweenaw Peninsula: No new snow with 35 inches of snow on the ground, 262 inches have fallen to date as of 3/26/2019.

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.

Thought it was illegal to take specimens out of Superior ??

China owns that copper slab now. Sorry bastards

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-...

Went to museum yesterday. It was worth the visit.

Megan Winn wanna go?

Beautiful picture!

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

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

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
