MECCA Trails gets support from members and donations. The organization has been promoting silent sports for nearly 50 years in Mercer. Offering amazing scenery, the 21K of groomed trails go through pine & hardwood forests, cedar, spruce & tamarack wetlands, and the Little Turtle Waterfowl Area.
The Gogebic Range Health Foundation has been our collaboration partner for the past three years. They also awarded a $10,000 grant for trail expansion and improvement. Please consider giving them your support!
