Swedetown Recreation Area has more than 25 miles of purpose-built single track mountain bike trails with maps and trail markers. Besides mountain biking, this trail system is enjoyed for nature hikes, dog walking and trail running.
July is here and the trails are great. Welcome new Trail Elves who have adopted segments of single track trails. We could use a few more volunteers to adopt trails – send email to email@example.com if you are willing to help.
We are working with Keweenaw Invasive Species Management Area (KISMA) to control invasive glossy buckthorn. Thank you volunteers who came to our June session. Upcoming sessions are July 22 and August 28, see our Events page if you are able to help with this project.
The main trailhead is on Osceola Road in Calumet, look for the big welcome sign. You will find Swedetown Chalet here, open during hiking and biking seasons with restrooms and drinking water. There is also a trail head on M-203, watch for big sign near Cloverland Road.
For winter recreation there are 35K of groomed ski trails plus snowbike trails, snowshoe trails and back-country trails to explore. Thank you everyone who skied this winter. Calumet had plenty of snow and an extended season with nice spring skiing.
Swedetown Recreation Area is 1900 acres of rolling wooded land set aside for public use by Calumet Township. The four season Swedetown Chalet is a welcoming starting point for trail adventures. Questions? email: firstname.lastname@example.org
