Keweenaw Snowmobile Club
Last updated 12/11/18
Snowmobile trails from Twin Lakes to Copper Harbor are officially open and in early season condition. The groomers were out over the weekend and panned. They will go out again, once we have sufficient snow. We will update you as soon as something happens.
Trail 120 and 121 that goes around Freda is closed for the season and will not be reopened. As well as trail 3 from Dollar Bay to Lake Linden. You can still get to Dollar Bay by way of Hancock and to Lake Linden by way of Calumet. Trails 122, 124, 133 are closed until the ground freezes, Currently the water holes are too deep. Trails 132 north of Lac Labelle 133, and 134 are closed for logging and will reopen once they are done. Trail 3 from Clear Lk Junction to Copper Harbor is TEMPORARILY closed for logging. It is scheduled to be opened by December 15th and will remain open for the remainder of the season.
The Houghton/Hancock bridge will be closed until the end of shipping season, so the mat will not go down for a few more weeks
Any trail usage should be done with extreme caution as there is very low snow cover and there are rocks, stumps, branches, wet areas and hazards that have not been identified.
