Copper Harbor Mountain Bike Trails

Tomorrow Iím riding some sections of these, not the black diamond courses but will be on some awesome trails that are world class. My wife and I are heading up to Brockway Mt so will be loading up Hummer for a fun afternoon.

Has anyone here been on these trails?

because we don't get much of that in michigan. reminded me of stuff down state, but I was in the big ring all of the time. It is all good - some nice views. Some rough rooty spots. One trail there was the only trail I've ridden in 40 years of mountain biking that was at or beyond my limits (rough steep narrow downhill, followed by a 12" wide bridge across a gully and a rough steep uphill requiring good speed to get across). That was an extreme example though. I seem to remember a lot of roots.

The roads there are beautiful and I really wanted to do some road biking, but the mountain biking was just too beautiful to get me away from the singletrack. Nice photo opportunities there too. Enjoy!

We are camping in Baraga and made the drive up. It was good to see sights we havent seen in years. The shuttle wasnt running so I rode up The Flow from the base. Wow what a workout. I may get another run at it. On The Edge is one I want to do even if I walk it along the cliff side. Cool place. The LBS Adventures rentals are tops in service and tips. They charted me a route of preferred must-do courses.
