Swedetown Recreation Area has more than 25 miles of purpose-built single track mountain bike trails with maps and trail markers. Thanks to a successful cleanup day on May 20th, all trails are open and ready for riding. Besides mountain biking, this trail system is enjoyed for nature hikes, dog walking and trail running.
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. Lower level is open daily including evenings for access to restrooms, drinking water, changing room and sitting area. The Swedetown Trails Club (STC), a nonprofit organization, partners with Calumet Township to maintain and improve the trail system and facilities.
In winter, Swedetown Trails feature 35K of fine cross country skiing and there are snowshoeing trails as well. We have just wrapped up a long ski season with skiing in early November and running through the end of April. Thank you all those supporters with season and daily memberships.
