      The Michigan Tech Nordic trail system accommodates all levels of riders -- from beginner to advanced. All of the trails are connected, but we have divided the maps into two sections to make things easier for printing.
      The upper trails are best accessed at the main trailhead on Sharon Avenue and include the westernmost trails, including the Pilgrim Road trails and the competition loops. The lower trails are best accessed at the Nara trailhead and include the lower loops and the Nara loops.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
