Mountain Biking Copper Harbor Trails

37 miles of trail and we have to describe just one part? Ride the Keweenaw Point Trail out to High Rock Bay. Right now it's a roughly 12 mile trip one-way, and eventually it'll be a 30 mile loop around some of the most remote terrain around. Construction is planned to wrap up in 2020, so check it out next time you're in the neighborhood. It's a beast!

Getting there
Take US-41 as far north as you can go to the tip of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and you will dead end into the quaint little burg of Copper Harbor, Michigan's northernmost town. Stop in to any local business for some prime intel, or go straight to the Keweenaw Adventure Company for the scoop on trail conditions, shuttles, and rentals. The trail ranges from nice flat gravel bike paths down along the lakeside to tight (sometimes very steep) technical singletrack. There is also some seriously technical rock sections which will test even the most seasoned riders but with the wonderful payoff of a truly georgeous lake to dive into at the end of the line! Man, the water is cold! The scenery is truly something special because the surrounding land is basically wilderness so be prepared to see some bear scat and other interesting "wild" sights! Breathing such clean air at this locale is something everyone should experience at least once in their lives. From huge views atop Brockway Mountain to the stormy shores of Lake Superior at High Rock Bay, there are so many sights to see you'll have to ride everything to catch it all!
