Welcome to Swedetown
Winter is coming! See the current conditions on our webcams.
The Swedetown Recreation Area in Calumet, Michigan, provides outstanding opportunities for recreation, including 26km of groomed cross-country ski trails in the winter and 25 miles of purpose-built singletrack mountain bike trails in the summer.
There are also snowbike and snowshoe trails in the winter. Hikers and runners are welcome to use all of the trails in the summer.
The Swedetown Trails Club, a volunteer organization, provides the stewardship for the trails in partnership with Calumet Township.
Season Opener Ski Race
The Season Opener Ski Race is planned for Saturday, December 9th. This is a Swedetown tradition! Think snow! If conditions allow, the race is on. No fees, sign up on day of race at 10 a.m. at the Swedetown Chalet. Suggested donation of $20 and there will be prizes.
The Swedetown Trails offer cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snow biking, and sledding in the winter; and singletrack mountain bike trails (which are also available for walking and running) in the summer.
