About Swedetown Trails Club

Swedetown Recreation Area is 1900 acres of rolling, primarily wooded land set aside for public use by Calumet Township. It offers outstanding year-round trails for all ages and abilities. Swedetown Chalet provides a welcoming starting point for trail adventures.

In summer and fall Swedetown Recreation Area has more than 25 miles of purpose-built single track mountain bike trails with maps and trail markers. There are also wide relaxed biking routes following former two-tracks. Besides mountain biking, the trail system is enjoyed for nature hikes, dog walking and trail running.

For winter recreation there are 26K of groomed cross country ski trails. Primary trails are groomed daily for skating with set tracks for classic skiing. There are 4.5K of trails with trail lights on until 8 p.m. seven days a week. There are also back country ski loops – stride through the woods making your own tracks. Snow bike trails start at the Chalet – five connected loops for a total of 10 miles, packed as needed.

The main trailhead is on Osceola Road in Calumet, look for the big welcome sign. You will find Swedetown Chalet here, with restrooms and drinking water. There is also a trail head at address 22500 Highway M203. Watch for a brown trailhead sign on the left before Cloverland Road.
