    Watersmeet to Copper Harbor and back is 310 +or -. The fastest and most direct way from Watermeet casino is take trail 2 East to trail 3 North (about 1.5 mile). Trail 3 to trail 8 West. Trail 8 West back to trail 3 North (just past Bruce Crossing). Take 3 North past Twin Lakes to Houghton. Cross the bridge into Hancock and hang a Left. Follow trail 17 North back to trail 3, just north of Hancock. Follow trail 3 North to Copper Harbor. During the week the trails are straight and fast so watch the gas. Fuel up in Twin Lakes or South Range and you can make it to Copper Harbor. Great places to eat along the trail. Fuel is more expensive/rare after Hancock. You can take 2 East to 107, which just a little farther down than trail 3 from Watersmeet. Then head East on 8 to 109 North to Twin Lakes, Then follow 3 North.

    Wife and I rode from our place in Land O to the Mosquito Inn (Toivolia) in about 2 1/2 hours on a Friday for lunch. Just a couple weekends ago. I would consider that about half way to Copper. If I was to do it I would fuel in Hancock, Copper Harbor and then maybe Bruce's Crossing on the way back. If you want to sight see I would plan on at least a hour. (Or more if you want to do and side excursions to Bear Belly, Gay or the likes). 320 on those trails go fast since it is totally on you for the pace.
