Work has begun on the Miners Memorial Heritage Park Bike Trails! THESE TRAILS ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION. Please respect all closed trail markers and ribbons as many sections are unfinished. There are currently no signs designating individual trail difficulty so please RIDE WITH CAUTION on open trails. All historical items are property of the Park and should be left where they are.

While these non-motorized trails are mountain bike optimized where bikers have the right of way, they are multi-use so please be cautious of hikers on the trail. Bikers must stop and yield at all intersections. Please do not use the trails when it is wet or raining.

In 2018 the City of Ironwood along with the Sisu Dirt Crew, Gogebic Range Health Foundation and Travel Ironwood applied for and received a Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Grant totaling $400,000 (including a 25% local match) 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 (completed 2021).

The completed trail system is scheduled to open this fall. Follow this page and the SISU Dirt Crew Facebook page for future updates.
