Trail Updates Open/Closed

trail-closed PLEASE READ!! 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.

    Good afternoon,

    Can you please tell me if Trail 3 that goes up to Brockway Mountain is open? Also, can ATV’s drive on the road going up to Brockway Mountain from Copper Harbor?

    Thank you.

    Do you have GPS coordinates for the Keweenaw county closures?

    Hi Kitty,

    The interactive map is not showing the trail closures nor does it tell me what numbers/letters they are. Is there a way to get a map online that shows the labels?

    Thank you.

      Hi have you looked at the dnr web site. Our map only shows you the washed out trails. The description of closed trails are written out. The main trail is closed to Copper harbor. Also the lake Linden trail is closed. Sorry

  7. Is there anyone in the atv club who is good at updating the latest visual maps of open and closed areas In Keweenaw? I understand you have the updated written ones but I am a visual person and I don’t know the keweenaw area like the back of my hand like others do, so written descriptions can be difficult. As little as it has changed in the way of closures, I don’t think it would take that much time for a map/computer savvy person to do a visual update every once in awhile. I understand this is all voluntary as far as the club goes but it would be nice to reach out to members and ask at the next meeting. Thank you. From Rochester Michigan.
