Notices to Eagle Harbor Township residents and taxpayers

Eagle Harbor Township Board Meetings
Until further notice, or changes come from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, our regular board meetings will be held in-person, and with remote participation through Zoom. Please follow the link below if you would like to join in the meetings.
Eagle Harbor Township Recreation Area expansion!
The Clark family has been working with the Township for well over four years to get a pivotal piece of property into the Township hands! It finally closed over the winter and we will be able to keep the trails open and maintained in perpetuity. This portion of the Eagle Harbor Trails has historically been used for the cross country ski trails and we have been allowed to groom and maintain them, with their permission for over 20 years! Thank you Clark Family! The Park Committee is in charge of maintaining these trails and we have recently installed a trailhead sign indicating it as Township property!
This property purchase was made possible with a Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Grant. The Township has been very fortunate to be a recipient of these funds for projects like securing the summit of Brockway Mountain, and other land purchases. Please note that these trails run through Michigan Nature Association sanctuaries and the purpose of these multi-use trials is Non-Motorized uses like hiking, biking, skiing and the like.
Updated Channel 28
We recently upgraded our equipment that outputs content to Channel 28 on the Eagle Harbor Cable System, provided by Cable America (thank you Jackson Family!) If you follow the link to the left for Channel 28 Notices, there is a link on the top that will play the scrolling channel line up and any current information that is on Channel 28. A big thanks to Dave Ellis for his time, skills and talent!
We have been fortunate to have someone volunteer his time and resources to install a weather station at the summit of Brockway Mountain. Click either of the links below to view current data. Thanks to John Lenters for the setup and we look forward to more weather related information from him in the near future!
Due to technological difficulties - the weather station hasn't been running.....stand by

EHT Cross Country Ski 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. 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 1/24/22
With the latest snowfall we are in good shape.
Everything is tracked, and we seem to be getting an inch or two every day!! Keep it coming!
D & F Carlton Loop (6K) - Packed, and tracked
Sand Bay Spur (3K one way) - Packed, and tracked
Shadow's Shortcut (.6K) - Packed, and tracked
Wellhead Loop (1.6K) - Packed and tracked
AGAIN, Thank you to the Keweenaw Community Foundation. Through a Cross Country Ski Grant, Eagle Harbor Township is going to be able to update our current track setting block. The current specimen is roughly 25 years old and well past its useful life. Thank you, thank you KCF!!
Please think about supporting the Keweenaw Community Foundation - especially the Cross Country Ski Endowment if you enjoy skiing in the Keweenaw!
