There are more than 200 miles of routes and trails that take you deep into the heart of Iron County! For the ATV enthusiast, Iron County hosts the largest ATV trail system in Wisconsin! Also explore the beauty of the Ottawa National Forest with approximately one million acres of land in the Western end of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula! Enjoy the forest experience and ride some trails!
The growing sport of mountain biking has taken hold in the Western U.P. We offer three complete trail systems making it a biker’s paradise. Right across the street from the Big Powderhorn Lodging Office is the Powderhorn Loop of the Wolverine Trail System which offers intermediate to advance, single and double track riding. The Pines & Mines Bike Trail System is located a short drive away in Iron County, Wisconsin, and in the Ottawa National Forest you can enjoy over 200 miles of back road and out in the middle of nowhere trail riding. The Mountain Bike Trails at Copper Peak offer a great cross country mountain bike experience to those of all abilities. The ride is not a “technical” trail system, but it is made fun, challenging, and exciting by 600 feet of elevation gain over the 5.5-mile trail system. Copper Peak also offers chair lift service to allow riders to start from the top and enjoy the scenery. Every Tuesday evening in the Summer the Fat Tire Club welcomes everyone to their guided 10 to 15 mile off road ride.
