Copper Harbor, Michigan Mountain Bike Shuttle


Respect the Van. Take a Lift to the Top!

Ready For Mountain Bike Downhill Runs? Because there is no ski area with a chairlift in Copper Harbor, our unique Michigan mountain bike shuttle is the next best way to get you and your mountain bike to the top of the mountain without having to pedal! An activity that’s most commonly associated with ski resorts out west, mountain bikers enjoy bombing down Copper Harbor’s sustained vertical descents along the miles of sweet singletrack that connect the Keweenaw Mountain LodgeBrockway Mountain and the village, nearly 600′ vertical and up to 3 miles below. While most of the trails are cross country trails and involve some pedaling, Copper Harbor’s gravity trails “Flying Squirrel”, ”Over-Flow”, “Danimal” and “Downtown” will push riders (and their suspensions) to their technical limits.

We recently spent four days in Copper Harbor and used the shuttle service provided by KAC. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the trails. They provided great tips for us since it was our first trip to the area. KAC is great for those unexpected break downs too...their service guys had us up and riding in no time and out a good price.
