The Iron Trail follows an old railroad corridor for 15 miles between the towns of Tower and Embarrass in northern Minnesota's Boundary Waters region. The trail traverses a mix of boreal forest and open spaces through a landscape of wetlands, bogs and ponds. The trail is primarily used by snowmobilers.
