      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 21 miles of purpose-built single track mountain bike trails with maps and trail markers. Feel free to utilize this trail system for nature hikes and trail running as well!
      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 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.

      Swedetown Trails Club thanks all volunteers who give their time and effort.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
