Tech Trails to be Staffed on the Weekends

The Michigan Tech Athletics and Recreation Department and the Michigan Tech Outdoor Adventure Program have joined forces to improve user experiences at the University’s trail system. A ticket booth at the trails will be staffed during weekends to allow users to purchase passes and rent equipment on site.

The booth will be located at the main trail head near the waxing shed and open Fridays 5 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Daily and annual trail passes along with ski and snowshoe rentals will be available at the booth. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted.

All trail users must have their pass displayed and may be delayed until verified as a student or paid user.

The Tech Trails offer more than 24 kilometers of six and nine meter trail for year-round use, including seven which are lighted. The trails connect with the Nara trail system. In addition to Nordic skiing and snowshoeing, there are dedicated trails for skijoring and snow biking.
