“Copper Harbor Singletrack Rocks!!!”
These words are commonly heard about mountain biking in this Upper Peninsula mountain bike paradise. Designated in 2009 as an IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association) “Epic Ride”, our world-class trail system is now recognized as being some of the best of the best…something the locals have known for quite some time! This designation was more recently trumped with the October 2012 designation of the Copper Harbor Trails as an IMBA “silver level” ”Ride Center” now ranking our trails among the top five trail systems in the world due to our variety of gateway, cross-country, flow and gravity trails, in addition to being a mountain biker friendly community!
Centrally located in “downtown” Copper Harbor, the principal mountain bike trailhead is conveniently located right across the street from Keweenaw Adventure Company’s retail shop, behind the Copper Harbor Welcome Center. Copper Harbor has a well-established network of over 40-miles of designated, marked and mapped singletrack trails that include some of the most unique, scenic and thrilling mountain biking in upper Michigan. In addition to these trails, miles and miles of logging roads and jeep trails traverse the uninhabited tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula, with access to remote Lake Superior shorelines, State Forest and conservancy lands, which are a thrill for the more adventurous explorers.
Where will you ride?
The Keweenaw Peninsula’s terrain surrounding Copper Harbor is mountainous by Midwestern standards and has some of the highest vertical elevation (up to 900’) between the Appalachian and the Rocky Mountains! Scoured away by the glaciers over 10,000 years ago, the rocky, rugged terrain of exposed bedrock, spiny ridge-lines and undulating valleys left behind offer a “genuine” mountain biking experience unlike anywhere else in this part of the country. When combined with the energy and awe of Lake Superior , the enchanted northwoods “Boreal Forest”, cool summer temperatures, surrealistic fall colors and down-to-earth U.P. hospitality, Copper Harbor is a premier destination for a mountain bike vacation which has more recently been regarded as some of the best anywhere in the world!
