HANCOCK CROSS COUNTRY TRAILS
February 14, 2012
It's nighttime in the woods, and a well lite tracked vehicle makes it's way methodically through the trees, pushing new snow with a blade in front, and custom grooming the trail left behind. Skiers await in the morning to traverse the newly groomed trails of the Hancock Maasto Hiihto/Churning Rapids Cross Country Ski Trail System.

Arlyn Aronson, Groomer Operator for the Keweenaw Nordic Ski Club, makes his way on a solo mission to groom the trails, day or night, during evenst or after significant snowfalls. A view looking West on Sunset Trail #4, a well sought view by many skiers. rail dragging operations on a trail thoroughfare. The drag is used to both level the trail, and set in the skier tracks at the proper depth and spacing.
The trail passes here on the Mud Lake Loop #4. There are a number of miles in the Trail System, with various options for the skiers. Churning Rapids Thoroughfare #16. Dragging operations on the Swedetown Creek Trail #3, in the Swedetown Gorge. A look back uphill.
Another look at the Swedetown River/Gorge Trail after a new snowfall. The Gorge Trail is a beauty all unto itself in the winter, with four bridge crossings. Our thanks to Arlyn for providing these beautiful photos of the Hancock Trail system.
