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.

Keweenaw Trail Reports

Dee Arthur and Wendy Bailey Arthur spent the week riding their sleds to some very beautiful places! A couple days were spent riding Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula and they have shared some of their photos with us! Wendy has also declared Bear Belly Bar as her new favorite place!

This is what they had to say about the area..... “Riding all over the tip of the Keweenaw today. More fresh snow overnight. Absolutely phenomenal conditions up here. Best we've ever seen. #OnlyMidWeekRides #NoWeekends #TeamBountyHunter — with Wendy Bailey Arthur.”

“It was BUTT COLD out there today, running thru the entirety of the northern Keweenaw. Quite possibly our new favorite trail stop...The Bear Belly Grill, in Lac La Belle. Thank you, Captain Steve...lunch was incredible! French Dip, Keweenaw Melt, Ale Battered Fries, & Peanut Butter Cheesecake. Another 4-5" thru the night and trails were abso-f'n-lutely phenomenal. Think we might look into buying a house up here! #MidWeekOnly #NoWeekends #TeamBountyHunter — with Wendy Bailey Arthur.”

Thanks for sharing your photos and reviews with us Dee & Wendy! So glad you enjoyed the week riding!

Western & Southern UP Trail Reports

Western Gateway to the U.P. is being groomed daily and is exceptional shape. So is Lake Gogebic, Watersmeet, White pine, Ontonagon, Mass City, Greenland, Ewen, Trout creek, Twin Lakes - everyone! Trails wont be phased much by the temps, we will need a half foot of rain to melt the 20-30" base on trails! #groomerreport ... See MoreSee Less

Anyone know if there’s a way through from chassell to Baraja. Also the best way to go from twin lakes to lanes. I heard there was closed trails.

Thanks for all of your hard work
