13 May Why Experiencing the Upper Peninsula Mountain Biking Trails is a Must
Getting to Become Part of History in the Making…
While the initial stages of an unplugged vacation, and disconnecting from technology, can certainly throw people off at first (last year I witnessed one millennial experience a true blue panic attack at the realization they had no bars on their cell phone), once settled into the concept there’s a huge sigh-of-relief from not being obligated to constantly reply/like/thumbs-up/heart/etc. It’s, in reality, truly liberating to not be bothered by such!
Getting to Traverse the Trails via a Guided Tour or Shuttle Service
And the Keweenaw Adventure Company (KAC), celebrating its 25th Anniversary season this year, has been a proud player in the trail system development, contributing to the trails with both thousands of man hours and financial donations. Copper Harbor mountain bike rentals and guided tours are available through KAC, along with Lake Superior sea kayaking — a great way to cool off at the end of a day’s ride, bid farewell to the day on a spectacular sunset paddle sea kayak tour as the sun drops into Lake Superior.
You can also boost your adrenaline on a downhill mountain bike run and save your legs, as the Keweenaw Adventure Company offers the only Upper Peninsula shuttle service for mountain biking. An activity that’s most commonly associated with ski resorts out west, mountain bikers enjoy bombing down
Copper Harbor’s sustained vertical descents along miles of flowy singletrack that connect the top of the system to the the village, nearly 600′ vertical and up to 3 miles below.
Truly unique to this part of the country, the Copper Harbor Trails provide a Michigan mountain biking experience that’s guaranteed to make you smile and keep riders coming back for more!
