Latest Conditions

Trails are open for hiking and hunting

MECCA Trails are open year round for your enjoyment.  The best trailhead and parking area to use for longer hikes is the Little Turtle Flowage (FF to East Popko Circle to Joe’s Shack Road).  There is limited hiking from the Chalet on Fierick Road due to wetlands.  We are planning to build wetland crossings next year, so we’ll be able to access the entire trail system from either trailhead.  The Chalet on Fierick Road is closed until the winter season.

The entire MECCA Trail system is open to hunters, so wear blaze if it’s hunting season.

Dogs are allowed on the trails if their human companions are behaved and trained to pick up after them.

About the Mecca Trails

There are 21 kilometers (13 miles) of groomed cross-country ski trails, tracked for classic skiers alongside a groomed skate bed.

The terrain was created by the glaciers thousands of years ago.  The forest has stands of hemlocks and pines.  There are hardwood uplands of maple and oaks, and wetlands of black spruce, cedars, and tamarack.  The trails have great views at the Little Turtle Wildlife Area.

MECCA Ski Club maintains the trails and depends on memberships, donations, and volunteers.  The club actively collaborates with the Town of Mercer, Iron County, and Wisconsin DNR.  MECCA Ski Club is a 501C3 non profit organization.
