Trail Update

Because of the recent mild temperatures, the trail surface has transitioned from snow to ice. Attempting to venture out on the trails is not recommended; the trail is extremely slippery. The chalet will be closed until we get skiable conditions.

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.
