In summer and fall seasons the trail system features more than 25 miles of purpose-built single track mountain bike trails with maps and trail markers. Besides mountain biking, the trails are enjoyed by many for nature hikes, dog walking and trail running. Come try our trails!
Swedetown Recreation Area is 1900 acres of rolling, primarily wooded land set aside for public use by Calumet Township. It offers outstanding year-round trails for all ages and abilities. The four season Swedetown Chalet is owned by Calumet Township, providing a welcoming starting point for trail adventures. The Swedetown Trails Club (STC), a nonprofit organization, partners with Calumet Township to maintain and improve the trail system and facilities.
We enjoyed a marvelous winter with over 275 inches of snow. This was our first season with the new wider winter groomer and we received many positive comments about the grooming. The new groomer is a Husky Prinoth XC groomer with high-speed tiller. Thank you to our season members as well as our many visitors buying day passes. With this support plus funds raised from the Great Bear Chase in March we were able to make a substantial payment on the equipment loan. Thanks all!
