The trails are always better at the end of the road, so come explore Copper Harbor, Michigan at the northern tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula, at the end of US 41! Copper Harbor may not have cell service or a Walmart but what we do have is almost gold... Being an IMBA Silver Level Center, is almost gold, right?

Besides great single track, Copper Harbor is known for...
- Great fishing, have you ever eaten a Splake?
- A great brewery, the Briskside, have you ever been "Brick-faced"?
- Kayaking, have you ever eskimo-rolled in the cold, clean water of Lake Superior?
- ATV trails? Never mind!
- Fort Wilkens State Park, have you ever tried to stump a re-enactor?
- Bird watching, did you know that there are still "raptors" out there?
- Restaurants, are you sure you want to get me started?

So, in other words, if you want to ride and HIDE, come to Copper Harbor, Michigan, we won't tell anyone where you are!

Lived in Chicago for 5 years, went up to Copper Harbor every year. It is an 8-hour drive, but it's worth it. Awesome trails, amazing vibe. Forget about franchise restaurants and shops, every business is local, excellent people.

Trails for everyone.

Taking a mountain bike down the winding trails of Brockway Mountain is not for the faint of heart. A trail called "on the edge" will take you perilously close to a beautiful, but undeniably dangerous, view of an unscathed and vibrant forest that spans the southern horizon. This is your moment of zen, free from the hassles of your hustle-bustle life and the shackles of monotony.
Other trails are available for the adrenaline junkies as well, simultaneously used for hiking or biking, winding from the summit of the mountain down to the highway far below. On any of them, you will be overwhelmed with the beauty and scents of "up north," inundated with flora, fauna, history, and great people.
If you're up to the challenge, I would recommend biking the dirt road that begins at the official end of Highway 41--a route that stretches 2,000 miles from Miami to a caul-de-sac in Copper Harbor. There are two amazing destinations you may choose from along this path: horseshoe harbor--a paradise in and of itself, and "the point." Even many residents of this part of Michigan have not been to the point, particularly because of the difficulty in traveling the rugged terrain. However, to those who have taken the pilgrimage and have successfully made it to the tip of the upper peninsula--whether for bragging rights or for a campground-away-from-the-campgrounds--the trip to "the point" is an accomplishment in stamina and endurance. The view, as all in Copper Country, is surreal.
