Houghton is a long ride for one day, it can be done but it is a hike.

Hurley to Houghton is a easy ride if you are just staying there. You should be able to make it to Copper Harbor the first day. Then do the loops on the next day and take your time. I would just get a map and ride.

We leave from Bessemer and run to Copper Harbor and back in the same day! A bit less than 400 miles. so a 2 day trip would be super easy.
Last year when I was with another group we rode from Sugar Camp to Copper Harbor and back the same day..

That ride is easy, I've done 2 day trips from st. germain to copper, (easy if trails are good),
also have done 3 day trips, st germain to silver city, to houghton-baraga, to st germain, just wing it, go as far as you can, and get a place to sleep where you end up,

good luck
