Trail Updates Open/Closed

PLEASE READ (Our map is not updated.) We have updated trails that are currently OPEN or CLOSED in the Keweenaw Peninsula. STAY OFF CLOSED TRAILS!!! Closed trails are marked and barricaded for your safety. DO NOT remove or drive around barricades on trails, please seek an alternate route, you will be ticketed by the Sheriffs or DNR if you are caught on a closed trail.  And please remember, the majority of our trail system is not owned by the state or county, they are easements through PRIVATE PROPERTY, if you are driving off the trail to avoid barricades you are trespassing and private property owners have the right to withdraw their easement at any time resulting in the loss of that section of trail.

    Are we in a position to update the trail map? Perhaps after the July 13,2020 meeting. Getting into the summer fall ATV season now with members like me planning UP rides! Would be great if we could eventually get visibility into trails leading to the Houghton/Hancock area as well.
