GUIDES: Our guides are very experienced and have cumulative years of experience riding the Copper Harbor Trails and local area.

Depending on your skill and comfort levels, you’ll be guided through enchanted forests for a taste of Michigan’s own version of British Columbia-type riding amidst a variety of cross-country and machine built flow and gravity trails. Copper Harbor is also notorious for its extensive cedar-planked boardwalks and bridges and there are many options for a variety of rides on Copper Harbor’s “stacked loop” trail system in relative close proximity to the village limits.

Another great option for this tour is the Keweenaw Point Trail – an epic 13 mile (one way) ride (26 mile round trip) – through the heart of the wilderness to Highrock Bay near the Peninsula’s tip at Keweenaw Point. Venture out along the bedrock and cobbled-rock trail on Phase I on a ridge perched high above Lake Fanny Hooe for some great panoramic views. In comparison, Phase II is a berm filled flow trail that seems to go downhill in both directions, with the exception of the eastern most section where the trail is more rocky leading down to Lake Superior’s shore.

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 and is regarded as some of the best anywhere in the world! Copper Harbor’s incredibly scenic, postcard-like setting and quality and variety of our trails will make mountain bike fanatics drool. Read more about our internationally renown trails here.
