Your Online Trail and Travel Guide for Snowmobiling the U.S. & Canada

Trail Report: Keweenaw Peninsula / Houghton-Hancock, South Range, Copper Harbor, Michigan – January 26, 2017

Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 12"-36"
Date of Report: January 26, 2017
Area Report:

Looks like the warm weather has left the area and cooler temps and lake effect snow is in the forecast.  The trails held up reasonably well, considering the warm temps and small bouts of rain.  The groomers have been out grooming every day.  All trails are open and being groomed from Copper Harbor to Twin Lakes.  I do know that you can go as far as Greenland, but you will have to check with that area for any info past there.  Trail #122 from Lake Linden to Gay is closed due to logging–please stay off of it!!  You can go from Lake Linden to the Dreamland Trail, but no farther.  Also, Trail #133 between Gay and Lac Labelle is rough with wet areas.  There is water on Trail #3 outside of Dollar Bay and on Trail #3 on the Houghton side by the Canal Road.  Please use caution as there may be other wet spots on the trails.  There is a washout on Trail #120, South Freda Trail, that has been filled in, but please use caution while on this trail.  Snow is forecasted for every day for the next few days, hopefully the lake effect will kick up a few good inches!  There are tons of sledders in town already, and the rest of the weekend looks to be super busy. 

Respect private property and others out on the trails, stay on the marked, groomed trails, stay off the water–its not safe, watch your speed–its not a race, and save the drinking for after the riding!!

Happy Trails!
