Mesabi Trail

Pace changer

May, 2018 by airwolf1

Have to agree with the positive reviews. The varying grades, scenery, history and over-all length make this trail a real winner. The remarks regarding a lack of water spouts and other amenities are generally accurate, and some of the dinky towns may not have much in the way of said amenities, however by and large it's one helluva trail. One of my favorites in the entire state, truthfully. Those mine pits make for excellent swim/dive sites, incidentally. Besides, I've learned never to look a gift horse in the mouth—you cheat yourself out of a lot if you do!

Mesabi Trail

Mesabi Trail experienc

January, 2018 by dizzywheels

This trail has varied terrain and lots of side trails as well. If you encounter illegal ATVs on the trail you are to call 911. That is what the park security has directed us to do. We had to report several ATVs to the police in Nashwauk. The police already seemed to know who it was, they did not require to see the photos of the law breakers.

Mesabi Trail

Beautiful trail, beautiful scenery!

September, 2017 by lrichman_tl

My son and I rode this trail in early August, from Grand Rapids up to Giant's Ridge. We did a self-supported bikepacking trip, camping overnight for two nights along the trail. This gave us plenty of time to see the sights.

It is a glorious trail to ride! It's well used by the locals, generally very well marked and maintained, and really a delight to ride. Other than three or four 8% grade hills, it is not a strenuous ride. The hills are generally quite short so that other than those few bigger hills previously mentioned, a beginner rider could easily do this trail. There is a section of the trail just before Biwabik that is on the road/hiway, and so this section may not be suitable for a beginner.

A word of caution for those camping and/or riding the entire trail: There is no water source at any point once you leave Grand Rapids - no pumps or spigots. Plan to carry plenty of water or be prepared to find a spot in one of the many towns the trail goes through to beg for water (the bars were quite accommodating)! Also, the only actual campsite area was just off the trail in Buhl. Otherwise, camping is limited for bike-packers. I highly recommend this trail for the ride experience and for the history lesson on Minnesota's iron range. There are many support mechanisms in place as well, for those that need it, including shuttle service. Well worth the WheelPass!

Mesabi Trail

Facilities

July, 2017 by kevinkaren

No doubt the Mesabi Trail offers a unique experience that's hard to beat. Like the best of the rail trails, but with hills and curves added. I rode 106 miles in two days of round-trip riding from Chisholm to Grand Rapids and had a very good time doing so. Very nice scenery, not too many road crossings, an excellent surface.

The trail stops at the edge of most cities and takes to the road until the other end of town. Most of these segments were pretty well signed, but coming into Nashwauk from the east I encountered conflicting signs posted next to the road and painted on it, followed the wrong one, and went out of my way almost a mile before backtracking.

One poorly signed road section is not a surprise. The biggest surprise (apart from the fact that I didn't at all mind the hills) was the lack of any true trailheads along the way.

The ideal trailhead has a dedicated parking lot for trail users, picnic tables, water, toilet facilities, and the gold standard: shade and showers. Many trailheads lack one or more amenities, but typically a trail has one or two trailheads with most of them.

Many towns along the trail had little to no off-road adjacent parking, there were few bathrooms, and not one trailside place with water to fill my bottles.

Another quirk which is not so unusual was the mileposts. They were spotty for the first 10 miles, then much more prevalent. There were 3 places between 0 and 48 where I found unaccounted gaps of up to 1/2 mile between two mileposts, so by the time you reach 48 you've gone 49. And I went several miles further by riding the "official" (i.e., noted on the map) side trails at Pengilly and Chisholm. Add that to my off-trail adventure, and that's how it took 106 miles to do 48 miles out and back.

Mesabi Trail

Great trip

October, 2016 by webuy

We rode from Grand Rapids to Virginia. the trail currently ends in Virginia due to road construction. The trail was in great shape. Any bad spots were spray painted white so you could see them.Yes, there are some hills. Nothing anyone who rides much would worry about.All in all this is an amazing trail. Go now.One downside... restrooms and water almost non-existent.

Blue Ox Trail (Voyageur Trail)

A lot to know about a trail with little info

June, 2016 by adamsmarineservice

Parts of the trail between Big Falls and Littlefork are under a foot or more of water, and for a considerable distance. Not recommended for smaller atvs, bicycles, etc, on that portion. Most of the trail is overgrown with tall grass and in some areas it's hard to tell where the trail even is. It's ok for atvs and horses but nothing else. It's very bumpy too. If the dnr maintained and repaired the trail I'm sure more people would use it

Mesabi Trail

Challenging Hills are worth it for the scenery and weather

September, 2015 by kabatwo

My husband and I did 53 miles of this trail on the Mesabi Bike Tour in July 2015. It was a well supported and organized ride. We really enjoyed the cooler up north temps and beautiful scenery. The hills are long and challenging but lots of nice downhills too. I had enough after 53 miles. Would love to go again next year!

Mesabi Trail

Fishing And Biking

August, 2015 by mercfsb

My wife and I stay at the Hidden Haven Resort in Cohasset, about 10 to 15 miles NW of Grand Rapids. Bob and Katie are the owners, and great people, and the fishing is very good! I usually come in from fishing around 1:30-2:00 grab a snack,and my road bike and head to Grand Rapids to ride the Mesabi. Great trail and scenery! I have road all of it now except the area south out of Ely that's not all completed yet. We go the last week of Sep. for peak color. Awesome ride!

Blue Ox Trail (Voyageur Trail)

No wonder no one responded to my request for info re. the Blue Ox

September, 2013 by gim820

I posted two eariler reviews which were requests for info about the Blue Ox/Voager Trl. Since I am in the process of Traversing America latitude by latitude on trails only from the Canadian to Mexican border, the Blue Ox provides the closest I could come to having a trail end very close to the northern US border. September 17-18/2013, my son and I rode all the trail we were able to ride. The were two places that the trail had breaks (Tenstrike & ~3 miles north of Big Falls) that required riding the sholder of US HiWay 71. The sholder is 3-4' wide and traffic is minimal (a car/truck in either direction every 1-3 minutes). I rode the trail as much as I could. North of Big Falls the Blue Ox starts again but swamp conditions lead to water over the trail as much as knee deep and extending for long, maybe 1/2-2 mile stretchs. With the bridge closed at Little Fork, I recommend riding Hiway 71 all the way to I'Falls from Big Falls. Percent of trail composition of the 107 mi Blue Ox trail: 10% 4-5 inch loose rock ballast,25% grass,30% packed ballast/gravel,10%,packed dirt(the best surface),20% small loose rocks and soft sand (ATV damage???),5% water covered. This trail is NOT a road bike and an unlikely a trail or hybrid bike option. I recommend a MTB with dual shocks and fat nobby tires. I still got bounced around but at age 69 everything hurts anyway. I never saw a sole on or around the but did see many deer and birds. The trail is more open without any tree tunnels you get on most converted rail trails. It appears this trail is for ATV's and Snowmobiles. I will post some pictures if I can. I am glad my son went with me. We were lucky with the weather but I would have been a beaten-up sole if I had been caught with a headwind, rain or snow. We just missed 70 mph winds and hail Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Good luck!

Anyone ridden this trail in 2013?

Looking for information regarding ability to get to Bemigi from International Falls by bicycle. Is this trail passable with a mountain bike? Is there water over the trai? Any comments would be helpful. Thanks
