Keweenaw lodge grooms trails

COPPER HARBOR — Visitors to the Keweenaw Peninsula have another reason to head north now that the historic Keweenaw Mountain Lodge has opened 10 kilometers of groomed, classic cross-country ski and snowshoeing trails in scenic Copper Harbor.

The trails’ opening coincides with the property’s first winter of operation under its new ownership.

“We took the plunge and bought grooming equipment in November to see if we could keep up with grooming the trails,” explained the lodge’s owner, John Mueller.

The lodge, built in 1934, launched the new trail system to enhance visitors’ access to the region’s outdoor amenities and connect with the property’s history.

Snowshoeing and ski equipment is available for rental at the lodge. The trail system is open to the public and is dog-friendly as long as the animals remain on-leash.
