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. As of early May, all the trails starting at M203 trailhead are open for biking – enjoy! Most trails near the Chalet are still too wet, with some patches of snow.
Coming up later this month May 26-28, Experience the Keweenaw with family friendly rides and hikes all over the Keweenaw. Including of course, at the beautiful Swedetown Trails. Time for a visit!
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. Thanks to all our season members who support the trails and also our many visitors buying day passes.
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.
New for 2016 season: new larger groomer! Swedetown now uses a Husky Prinoth XC groomer with high-speed tiller. With all your support and the money raised from the Great Bear Chase we will be making our first loan payment in June. Thanks all!
