Gateway to Giants Ridge
“Biwabik,” meaning “valuable” in Ojibway, is the gateway to Giants Ridge Golf & Ski Resort. Long valued for its iron ore, today, Biwabik is a travel destination. The community, a trailhead of the historic Mesabi TrailSM, is the home of the “Honk the Moose” statue and boasts a well-lit paved walking trail and a sledding hill.
True to the ethnic diversity of Iron Trail communities, Biwabik treats visitors to its unique Bavarian style. It has become the area’s year-round center of attraction, hosting thousands of Alpine & Nordic skiers, snowmobilers and golfers. Biwabik is host to several seasonal festivals including: Maifest Children’s Festival (first Saturday in May), featuring games, rides, food and music in the park; the Fourth of July, which presents the area’s largest (Calithumpian) Fourth of July Parade; and Weihnachtsfest (the first Saturday in December), a Christmas lighting celebration complete with fireworks, displays, ethnic food, music and entertainment.
