    These are a solid set of trails that aren't as technical as others nearby. They flow well and would make for a great long ride. Trails are well marked and I like that you can virtually stay to the outside and barely repeat anything and get 20 or so miles in. The trails marked as black are not as tricky as some at other systems - they generally just had steeper drops & climbs - all pretty brief.

    It's a wonderful trail system with signage and naps everywhere. Impossible to get lost here. It's different from Michigan Tech or Copper Harbor - nice flow trails with decent amount of climbing.

    If you want fast flowy trails then Swedetown is a good place. Great for a recovery ride or for beginners to intermediate riders looking to ride without getting in to too much technical terrain. We rode there during a downpour during the Ride the Keweenaw weekend and it was a lot of fun.

    Fun trail. Decently long not very technical but a good flowing trail system. If you are in the Keweenaw it should be on your to do list.
