Michigan Trail Report


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 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.

Spring Trail Report: We know you're excited to get out on our trails again because we've already had a few reports of bikers in town looking for something to ride. Unless you are snowshoeing, our trails are currently CLOSED! There is still 1-2 feet of grainy, wet snow across our system. Our anticipated opening date depends on weather conditions and will likely be towards the end of May. Think (dry) dirt! ... See MoreSee Less

Trails will open in July lol

I got my ATV stuck in the snow that's still in the woods in Petoskey today. But it is melting fast.

Slowly these are getting put into all of the cabins. Not so you can hide in your rooms here but so your electronics will be charged so you can take pics of your adventures while here in the Yoop! ⛄🌻 ... See MoreSee Less

Why would you go there to sit in your room anyways, but it's an amazing place in an amazing town I grew up there and we were always outside and end of the day went home and that's how Krupps is and just in my personal opinion it doesn't get any better than that

Those are the bomb i put those in my home.

I love the little updates. You guys have done a great job this year. Keep up the good work.
