Timber Harvests –
A few sections of the MECCA Trail System has and will be affected by timber harvests conducted by the WI DNR and Iron County Forestry.  Attached is a map depicting the DNR’s timber harvest which is nearly completed except for forwarding and trucking the timber off the property.  As you can see on the map, the aspen harvest was conducted in the area of the Moose and Osprey Loops.

The Iron County Forestry pine harvest will affect the south end of the Homestead Loop.  This harvest should be starting in late May or early June.

MECCA is working with WI DNR and Iron County Forestry to remediate the impacts to the ski trails.   If hiking the trails, the best advice is to stay clear of the operations.

About MECCA Trails

There are 21 kilometers (13 miles) of routinely groomed cross-country ski trails and three miles of snowshoe trails. In the spring, summer and fall these trails are used by hikers, runners and wildlife watchers. The trails are moderately challenging as they traverse glacial features of eskers, drumlins and kettles.

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 Parks and Forestry Department, and Wisconsin DNR. 

 Since 1973, MECCA Trails has been community focused, volunteer driven, and donor funded promoting silent sports. MECCA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
