Iron Ore Heritage
The Iron Ore Heritage Trail is a 47-mile, multi-use, year round trail that connects communities and people to the region’s historic sites and human stories. The trail was designed for walkers, bikers, runners, inline skaters, wanderers, horseback riders, people in wheelchairs, snowmobilers, history buffs,
ORVs, cross country skiers, shutterbugs, and explorers. But take notice, not all of the trail is open to all users. Please see the ORV, bike, and snowmobile maps for where you can get on and ride.
The trail follows mostly abandoned railroad corridors that were used to bring lumber to furnaces and forges and iron ore to the Lake Superior Harbor.
