Mountain bike on skyway
trail in the fall colors

Looking for flowy singletrack? A nice hike through the fall colors? A walk or ride along a ridge with overlooks of the Keweenaw Waterway? Or a stroll along a babbling creek with a series of tiny waterfalls? 

You've found it at the Maasto Hiihto and Churning Rapids trail system. Use one of the three trailheads and enjoy more than 2,000 acres of great riding and hiking through the forest.

In the last five years, the Hancock Trails Club has renovated several miles of singletrack, and added several new trails. We have more than 25 miles of trails for riding and hiking.

Here are some resources to help you plan:

Trail information

  • Trails are maintained by the Hancock Trails Club, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, in coordination with private and municipal landowners.
  • Please support these trails by purchasing a membership or making a suggested day use donation of $5.
  • Recreate responsibly and at your own risk. Cell phone service is limited. Familiarize yourself with the maps and trails.
  • In the event of an emergency, call 911 and provide the designation of the nearest intersection (see map).



Hancock Trails Club memberships keep the groomers in fuel and trail workers in tools. Memberships support grooming, trail sustainability efforts, and new trail construction.



Donations help us go the extra mile. Sometimes memberships can't cover large one-time expenses, plus donations provide the ability to respond to opportunities (like strategic land purchases).
