The riding in Copper Harbor is REAL mountain biking and is truly unique for the Midwest. A series of rocky undulating ridges and valleys punctuate the area and are highlighted with old growth forests, pristine inland lakes and streams, historic locations, mountain top vistas and rugged Lake Superior shoreline. Natural surface singletrack trails wind over bedrock and hard packed surfaces with sustained climbs and descents. The trails are also known for their extensive cedar planked boardwalks and bridges.
