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 & 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

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.
