Michigan Tech Trails

The Michigan Tech Trails are a great resource—support them by purchasing an annual membership or day pass. Your support helps ensure that our trails are well groomed, maintained, and updated.

Trail usage is one of the benefits of the Experience Tech Fee, and currently enrolled Michigan Tech students may use the Tech Trails at no charge. A trail membership or day pass is required for all other users. Children age 12 and younger are eligible for a free youth trail membership available at the SDC Ticket Office.

Trails members get locker room access - ability to use the locker room (110). Locker rentals are reserved for SDC members. 

Community Wax Space Closed

Indoor wax space will not be available at the Tech Trails this season.
