Positioned in the Heart of Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula, the portage was the Artery of America's First Great Metal Mining Region.

Join us to celebrate the culturally significant Mine Ruins to virtually untouched waterfalls, coastlines, and crags by paddling 10 miles from Breakers To Bridge to support the Keweenaw Land Trust's mission of protecting land and water access for public use.
