The Swedetown Recreation Area is 1,900 acres designated by Calumet Township and the North Houghton County Water Authority for enjoyment of the outdoors. The landmark water towers for Calumet are located overseeing the trails.
This trail system features more than 25 miles of purpose-built single track mountain bike trails with maps and trail markers. Besides mountain biking, this trail system is enjoyed for nature hikes, dog walking and trail running.
There are two trailheads with parking. Main trailhead is on Osceola Road in Calumet and there is also a trailhead on M-203 near Cloverland Road. The Swedetown Chalet is open during daylight hours with drinking water, restrooms, maps, a changing room and a bulletin board of events.
The Swedetown Trails Club is a non-profit group of volunteers who donate their efforts to improve and develop fun, flowy mountain bike trails in summer and scenic ski and snowshoe trails in winter. We appreciate all volunteers who give their time and effort.
