Snowfall & Trails Report: April 23, 2023

Season Snowfall: 261.75" (Provided by Keweenaw County Road Commission)

Weather Conditions: 35°/22° Periods of snow, 1-3"


  • Trails 3 from Mohawk to Clear Lake 132, 134 (minus High Rock), and 135 were all groomed.
  • Be mindful of spring riding conditions, including thin spots and water holes. The trail through Houghton/Hancock is getting especially thin and bare.
  • Due to land owner permits, we are not extending the season. Gates on private land will be closed on April 1st.


  • Trail 124 Closed: Effective the evening of 3/7/2023, Trail 124 is closed for logging. The warm weather the last few days has impacted the crews that were logging across this trail. They now need to log up and along the trail due to warm weather. We appreciate the landowner and logging companies support this year to work with us to minimize trail disruptions. Please respect the closure for the remainder of the season. The trail will be taped and signed as closed at the intersection of Trail 122/124 and at the intersection of Trail 3/124, formerly known as Vansville.
