Description
The Pilgrim Community Forest was established by the Keweenaw Land Trust in the fall of 2014. The 276-acre forest is just minutes from Houghton and the acquisition is part of a larger conservation strategy for the Pilgrim River Watershed Project – a community partnership working to protect watershed health, support sustainable forestry, and provide for low-impact non-motorized public recreation.  This conservation area has a variety of forest and habitat types, with about one mile of the Pilgrim River’s main channel and a 2.5 mile recreation trail constructed by local volunteers from the Keweenaw Trails Alliance.

Visitors are welcome to hike, bike, snowshoe, or cross country ski on the single track trail that leads through the beautiful forests and riparian corridor.  The Pilgrim Community Forest is enrolled in the Michigan Commercial Forest Program and is open for fishing, hunting and trapping. Currently the property is accessible near the guard rail on the west side of Paradise Road at the intersection with Pilgrim Road, with a KLT trail sign identifying the path. Park on the shoulder, well off the road and be careful crossing the roadway. The footpath heads down to a small bridge over a feeder creek to the kiosk with nature area information.
