About the Iron Trail
The Iron Trail stretches from Hibbing in the west to Hoyt Lakes on the eastern end, with eight communities in between: Chisholm, Buhl, Mountain Iron, Virginia, Eveleth, Gilbert, Biwabik and Aurora. United by their common mining origins, each of these cities offers its own particular brand of family fun.
You’ll discover a region with miles of trails for biking, hiking, skiing and snowmobiling, as well as canoe routes and a one-of-a-kind off-highway vehicle park which offers 1,200 acres of hill climbing and trail riding excitement for motorcycles and four-wheelers.
The Iron Trail is also a region that is both scenic and historically significant where visitors can enjoy tantalizing European foods and colorful stories about the immigrants who mined and shaped the land.
Whether it’s a slice of American history, an affordable family vacation destination, outstanding water sports, hunting, camping, or participating in old-fashioned festivals and events that leave you smiling — It’s all here on the Iron Trail, and it all makes for a great way to getaway.
