This is the Keweenaw Snowmobile Trail System Report for Friday, March 23, 2018.
Snowmobile trails from Twin Lakes to Copper Harbor are open and in Fair to good, end of season condition. Grooming has been suspended until we get more snow. Trails on the south end are showing end of season wear. The trails on the north end are still in pretty good shape.
Trail 133 is now closed for the rest of the season, due to logging. Please respect this closure and stay off the trail. There is still plenty of good riding on the rest of the Keweenaw Snowmobile Clubs trail system. You can still get in and out of Gay via trail 122/124.
Remember when you’re out on the trails to watch out for the groomers. They have the right away.
The Keweenaw Convention & Visitors Bureau asks that you stay on the trails, STAY OFF THE ICE, respect private property, do not drink and drive, and above all else, drive safely. The signs on the trail are there for riders’ safety so please DO Not remove or destroy them.
