Keweenaw Peninsula Trail Report – 03/12

KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Western UP Trail Reports – 03/12

It’s a beautiful morning on Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula!

There are currently two Groomer Operators out on the trails north of Mohawk and it’s 17 degrees 👏!

Photos are of yesterday’s ride after Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday’s warm temps and a lot of rain on Wednesday. As you can see from the photos, trails were still in decent condition and all riders we talked to yesterday were also very happy with conditions. The views were amazing as always!

As I stated last night, by late afternoon/early evening 3 had become pretty whooped up.

Groomers ARE currently out! Checkout the Groomer Tracker app to see the status of trails if you are riding the area.
I would still currently recommend staging somewhere north or south of the bridge as getting through Houghton/Hancock is not advised.

Staging options:

The Trailside Lodge
on trail 17 – call to verify availability
Vansville Bar
on trail 3 where it intersects with trail 124
Krupps Resort
on trail 3 in Twin Lakes …

KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Keweenaw Trail Reports - It has been amazing conditions for riding Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula over the past couple of weeks! It’s snowing with a forecast that ranges with anywhere from 4-10 inches right now! All trails have been groomed in the last 24 hrs, with the exception of the spur to High Rock Bay.
Cullen Keath and crew were just up for their annual trip to ride the Keweenaw Snowmobile Club trails! A few in their crew rented their sleds from Copper Country Rentals again this year. They said it was a great experience renting from them! ( Copper Country rentals is conveniently located right on trail 17 in Calumet at The Trailside Lodge.
Cullen shared these photos and details about their trip, “This was our second annual trip to the Keweenaw Peninsula! It was an awesome 2 days of riding with 275 miles total!
The first day ride was from Calumet to Rockland, we had planned to go to Bergland, but there wasn’t enough time. We enjoyed the day of riding in the beautiful weather. We took a break at The Mosquito Inn!
The second day we rode from Calumet to Eagle Harbor. It was a beautiful view along the Lake Superior shoreline and of the Eagle Harbor Lighthouse. We then headed to Brockway, one of my favorite things to do on the snowmobile! We stopped to eat lunch at The Mariner North. The food is SO good and they have a GREAT staff!
From Copper Harbor, we rode out to High Rock Bay. The last part of trail 134 had a lot of moguls , but so worth it for the view of Lake Superior!
We left High Rock and headed on a long ride to the Gay Bar in Gay, Michigan. It was a great trail ride!
So grateful to all of the Groomer Operators that gave us such amazing conditions to ride! Thank you!”
We are so happy you enjoyed your annual trip to the Keweenaw! Thank you SO much for sharing your beautiful photos and videos with us Cullen!
If you would like real-time information on grooming operations, please download Groomer Tracker app and subscribe to the Keweenaw Snowmobile Keweenaw Snowmobile Club trails! There is a nominal fee of $10 and half of that goes straight to the club to help support the trail grooming! ... #keweenaw #snowphotos

KEWEENAW PENINSULA UPDATE via Western UP Trail Reports - Getting hit with some significant snow right now here in the Western UP. Looks to me like it will give us between 10"-12" before it's said and done but that's my prediction.

WEATHER UPDATE via US National Weather Service Marquette Michigan - Snow will move in from the west late this morning. A brief period of heavy snow is likely this afternoon, mainly in the Keweenaw and north-central. Cold air moves in tonight with lake effect snow and gusty winds expected, especially in the Keweenaw. Blowing snow will create low visibilities, slow down and leave extra time for any travel tonight through Wednesday morning... #MIWeather #keweenaw #westernup #marquette #munising #Seney #newberry #Soo #straitsareaSnow will move in from the west late this morning.

Brent Mason shared some photos and a few comments on the first days of his trip! Brent said, “One of my most favorite places to ride a snowmobile is in the Keweenaw! The snow is amazing and the Keweenaw Snowmobile Club does an amazing job taking care of their trails and Keweenaw Trail Reports, keeping us all updated! I put on 350 miles so far on the Keweenaw trails this weekend and I saw a lot of grooming operations and smooth trails! Huge thank you to the Groomer Operators !🤟”
Brent also said, “I want to give a shout out to a few of the awesome places we stopped also, Lac La Belle Lodge / Bear Belly Pit Stop super awesome place and awesome owners! Gay bar in Gay was really cool. Copper Harbor Fuel Stop is always a great fuel and convenience store stop - cool place. The The Mariner North and Eagle Harbor Inn for excellent food and drink! Slim's Cafe in Mohawk has the best breakfast! Vansville Bar for fuel and an awesome view of the cliffs across the street! We stayed at the Super 8 in Houghton, along the canal and now we are still at Parkview - New Lodge and Grill for some more riding! Both of those lodging establishments are great places to stay! We stopped at so many wonderful places, it’s hard to mention them all! I’m thankful for all of the local businesses that make riding the Keweenaw even more enjoyable!”
Thank YOU Brent for taking the time to share your photos and review on the trails and local establishments! We love to be able to post the experiences that other riders have! Enjoy another great day out there riding some of the best and most scenic trails in Michigan's Upper Peninsula! ... #keweenaw #snowphotos
