Keweenaw Snowmobile Trails-Provided by the Keweenaw Snowmobile Club

Snowmobile trails from Twin Lakes to Copper Harbor are officially open but are in early season condition.  Some groomers are out opening trails and clearing hazards.  More snow is needed.

Any trail usage should be done with extreme caution as there is low snow cover, rocks, branches, wet areas and hazards that have not been identified.

The Portage lift Bridge is open for snowmobile traffic.  The mat is not down yet.

Trail 124, 132W and 133 are temporarily closed for logging.

Remember when you’re out on the trails to watch out for the groomers.  They have the right away.
