Copper Harbor Trails Professional Reviews and Guides
"This trail system is a ride through Copper Country history. Starting at the Lake Fanny Hooe Resort, the original site of the Fort Wilkin’s Garden, the trail leads to the 377-acre Estivant Pines Sanctuary, a stand of old-growth Eastern white pine. Mechanized vehicles of any type are strictly prohibited here, so drop your bike before strolling through the forest. Later the Red Trail climbs steeply past the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge and continues along an old hiking trail, both 1930s WPA projects. Cyclists need to thank local fat-tire enthusiasts for grooming the excellent singletrack trails. Tread: 1.2 miles of paved road, 3.3 miles of dirt road, 2.0 miles of doubletrack, 5.3 miles of singletrack."
