Ride Minnesota’s Premier Paved Bicycle Trail

It’s a bike trail like no other: pedal past pristine lakes, through woods, over rollings hills, winding through bogs and hey, there’s a taconite mine. And there’s another! It’s a ride you won’t forget, filled with historic sites, not to mention a string of small towns with a TON of charm.

Take advantage of the shuttle service and you can explore different legs of the trail at your leisure. Pick up your Wheel Pass, put on your helmet, and hit the trail! Check out the official Mesabi Trail website to learn about current trail construction progress, potential detours and the places you’ll be passing!
