Welcome Traveler

The Iron Ore Heritage Trail will be a 48-mile, multi-use, year round trail that connects communities and people to the region’s historic sites and human stories. Through a multitude of interpretation methods, we can share the story of the Marquette Iron Range and our 160+ years of mining ore that changed the landscape of Marquette County and the United States.
