Fundraiser for the Community Building

You have probably seen these around for a few years, but we are getting down to the last of them.  We will look at doing another run of plates in the future, design and look to change, but we need to sell the remainder of these first.  The money raised goes to the operation and maintenance of the Community Building.  Stop in the office to purchase!  $10 each

Notice to Eagle Harbor Township Residents and Taxpayers

March in the Keweenaw

You know the story, in like a lion and out like a lamb.  We rarely follow the storyline up here, March so far came in like a lamb, with mild temps and bright sunshine all weekend.  the CopperDog 150 took place and besides it being a little balmy for the dogs, the volunteers and spectators really appreciated the sunshine and mid thirty temperatures!   I'm sure we will get some storms this month and I know there will be snow, but at least the sunshine feels good at the moment.   As we get ready for actual spring, we look forward to the end of winter and seeing more of you around the Township. 

Stop by when you are in town!

M-26 Closure at Silver River Bridge 

Summer of 2023

If you have driven between Eagle Harbor and Copper Harbor in the last year, you would have noticed the barriers, stop lights, and general "out of placeness" of what is going on at the Silver River crossing, right before Brockway Mountain Drive.  Michigan Department of Transportation has notified the Township that the crossing will be replaced next year with a new bridge!  The excitement will fade when you learn that the crossing will create a timeframe of roughly 10-12 weeks where you will not be able to cross the bridge.  

UPDATE -MDOT Press Release 

The public meeting regarding bridge project is March 21st, 3pm-4pm.  It will be in the Township office, and available online through Microsoft Teams at:

Eagle Harbor State Marina

The upgrade to the Eagle Harbor State Marina has begun.  They have been working through the cold weather and the plan is to work until winter takes over and resume in the spring.  They have focused on the current seawall and infrastructure and they have built the new seawall to the east of the boat launch ramp.  Work on expanding the docking to the eastern side of the boat launch will resume in the spring/summer.  The project will likely go through the entire boating season in 2023.  The two most frequently asked questions are - "will they remove the tree in the middle of the road?" (NO!), and  "will the boat launch remain open through construction?" (Yes,  except for a very brief time when they place infrastructure underground to the eastern improvements).  We will update as we know more.  Below is part of the bid plans, the entire plan is printed at the Township Office and is available to review.

  EHT   Cross Country Ski/Hiking Trails

Click on the updated Ski Trail Map link -  2022 Map 

Please know that we have removed a section of the trail that went through some private property.  There were no issues, but rather the Park Committee is trying to more permanently secure the trail and felt that it was time to reroute some of it.  We have been very fortunate to use these properties for so many years, thank you!  The entire trail will now be accessed through the Dorothy and Fritz Carlton Loop.     You will see signs saying "New Trail" and pointing you across the snowmobile trail towards Lake Eliza, please follow this spur to access the rest of the trail!

Last year we added another trail option, close to the Eliza trailhead - a 1.6K loop that goes around our Well House, called the Wellhead Loop.  It is a lollypop loop that does cross the snowmobile trail, so be careful.  Check out the map link above.

Current Status of trails: Updated 1/23/22

 Thank you for your support and we look forward to the ski season!

For updates of area trail conditions please check out the link below

AGAIN, Thank you to the Keweenaw Community Foundation.  We have again been the recipient of a grant from KCF.  We will update all of our signs in the Eagle Harbor Township Recreation Area and build a template that we then can use at all of our Recreation Areas throughout the Township.  Having just been awarded the grant, we will work through the winter and be installing new signage later in 2023.

Please think about supporting the Keweenaw Community Foundation - especially the Cross Country Ski Endowment if you enjoy skiing in the Keweenaw!
