Copper Peak Trails Fest
The Copper Peak Trails Fest has become an annual event which takes place on the grounds where the iconic Copper Peak Ski jump sits. The trails fest features a mountain bike race, a trail run and a kids mountain bike race on the twisting, winding trials built by the Sisu Dirt Crew, mountain bike club. This club hosts the race to raise money in order to continue building trails, promoting mountain biking for all ages and abilities and advocating for mountain biking in the Gogebic Range as a means to improve health and the economy.
The funds raised have been used to secure a Michigan Department of Natural Resources Trust Fund grant to develop trails in the Miners Memorial Heritage Park in downtown Ironwood.
