Michigan’s Iron Belle Trail

Michigan’s Iron Belle Trail

Jump on the longest designated state trail in the nation as you hike or bike your way between Belle Isle Park in Detroit and Ironwood in the Upper Peninsula. Explore pristine forests, pass cool rivers and visit charming towns, and find out why Michigan is known as “The Trails State.” The 1,273-mile hiking route (69% complete) incorporates a large portion of the existing North Country National Scenic Trail. It traverses the west side of the Lower Peninsula and borders Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula. The 791-mile bicycle route (64% complete) utilizes existing multi-use trails and follows US-2, a designated national bicycling route in the Upper Peninsula. Our local portion of the trail runs from the Depot park, into Hurley WI, and continuing to Bessemer with expansion to Wakefield MI in the near future.

Coming soon!

For 2019 the MNRTF has awarded the City of Ironwood and the SISU Dirt Crew a $280,000 grant for development of a mountain bike trail system at Miner’s Memorial Heritage Park in Ironwood, MI. The 167-acre park, located in the center of the city, was once the location of numerous historical mining operations. The new network of mountain biking trails will provide opportunities for cyclists of all levels – from beginner to advanced. The project will include development of several trailheads around the park as well as a link and trailhead on the Iron Belle Trail north of the site. The park also features a network of walking, cross-country and snowshoe trails and hosts community activities such as the Candle Light Snowshoe Hike and the SISU Ski Fest, a popular cross-country ski race in Ironwood.
