Bill Nichols Trail

The Bill Nichols Trail is 40+ miles and stretches from Houghton to Mass City.  The Northwinds Adventures property lies about 2.3 miles from one of the many trailheads, and it is legal to use the roads with your ATV or snowmobile to get from Northwinds to the trail.  Consult the Michigan ORV regs for registration requirements and trail rules.  This trail has a number of unique features, including scenic overlooks of the Houghton Canal, ruins of old copper mines and some breathtaking views from bridge crossings over the Firesteel River.


Other ATV & Snowmobile Trails & Unmarked Logging Roads

There is plenty of wild land to discover and explore in the Keweenaw Peninsula via snowmobile, ATV or 4×4.  Countless backroads and logging roads crisscross the landscape both north of Houghton towards Copper Harbor and west of Houghton towards Ontonagan and the Porcupine Mountains.  Pack a cooler, some recovery gear and a basic emergency kit, and set off in any direction to explore the wilds of the Keweenaw!
