Trailhead 11 - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

This is a great day hike or trail run that is point to point. You can end in the town of Marquette and grab a bite to eat. ​​Begin at trailhead 11 and end at trailhead 9. This hike can be shortened by beginning at Trailhead 10 or Chocolay Lions Field​. ​

The Iron Ore Heritage Trail is a 48-mile, multi-use, year round trail. Activities include trail running, hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and backpacking. Given the length of the trail (and the point-to-point nature of the trail) make sure all members of your party are physically able to cover the mileage!
