TRAILS: Gravity, Downhill
Not a climber? Explore Copper Harbor’s gravity trails with our expertly trained staff and via our downhill Mountain Bike Shuttle. Shred berms and ride jumps, bridges and rocks! With trail difficulty ranging from Intermediate to Double Black Diamond there are trails for most to 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!
