About the Mecca Trails

There are 21 kilometers (13 miles) of groomed cross-country ski trails, the entire trail system is track set for classic skiers and a groomed skate lane.  

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. 

MECCA  is a 501c3 non profit organization.  Community focused and volunteer driven.  Memberships and donations are appreciated.
