U.P 200 Takeoff Party at Chocolay Bayou Nature Preserve

Presented by U.P. Land Conservancy at Chocolay Bayou Nature Preserve, Harvey MI

Feb 15 2019
U.P 200 Takeoff Party at Chocolay Bayou Nature Preserve

Enjoy a bonfire and hot cocoa while watching sleddog teams rushing through the quiet of the woods at UPLC’s Chocolay Bayou Nature Preserve in Harvey.

The UP 200, a 200-mile sleddog race through the Upper Peninsula, kicks off Feb 15th, 2019 at 7:00 PM in downtown Marquette. If you’d like to watch the mushers swoosh by in the quiet of the woods, away from the bustle and lights of downtown, join us at the Chocolay Bayou Nature Preserve. Sled teams pass directly by the Preserve, so we get a great view and interaction with the mushers. Teams typically pass the trailhead at the Preserve between 7:30-9:30 or so (the midnight run starts at 8:30).  We will have a serene lamp-lit trail leading from the Main Street parking lot of the Bayou Preserve
