Iron Ore Heritage Trail

Greenery and scenery

June, 2018 by aparrott58

Rode from ishpeming to iron museum. Glad I read the reviews. Going up the steep section would've required dismounting. There was some confusion on signage since there were mtn bike and orv trails that intersected ioht. Loved the trail markers and the kiosks and interpretive signs were great. There is more parking than indicated in this writeup. Also more trailheads. Pleasant trail all around.

Felch Grade Trail

Rutted & Mud, Stumps showing through and Rocks Felch Grade

May, 2018 by garylantagne

Starting at Tesch its a Crushed Limestone Trail In Good Condition. Then heading West for approx. 1 Mile just past the Village of Schaffer the Gravel ends and the Dust and Ruts begin.The rest is Tore Up Cinders, Terribly Rutted and Mud Holes, some over a foot deep. Very little Law Enforcement seen so Be Careful out there.
For a State Department of Natural Resources Trail its Pathetic. Dead Trees hanging over the trail also.
Don't get me wrong in Jan. Feb. and maybe into March its Groomed on a Regular Basis but the Other 9 Months Very Poor Riding Conditions.

Bruno's Run Trail

May, 2018 by akadhughes

Beautiful hike with frequent nice views of streams and lakes. It is a fairly long hike, over 9 miles and we started late in the day, we had to stop at a midway point and hike the road back to Pete's Lake campground. 2nd day we had a fellow camper drop us off at the road crossing we ended at previous day and completed the trail.

Felch Grade Trail

Felch grade snowmobile trail

From when I rode on the Felch trail it seemed fine to me

Iron Ore Heritage Trail

Starting from the Republic end...not signed or marked, encountered off road vehicles and trucks w beer drinkers, beaver flooding make it nearly impossible.
These folks need to know that designating and maintaining a trail for non motorized use will bring in people. The way it is it's not worth the drive.

Felch Grade Trail

Condition

Trail is very rough not very well maintained by DNR at this time.

Iron Ore Heritage Trail

A heart building delight

July, 2015 by gjswitek

As a former resident of Marquette and mining company employee, I was really curious about what the trail would show me. It turned out to be things I never knew existed.

I began my ride in Marquette knowing that it is a near constant climb toward Negaunee, where I began my return trip. I had ridden between the two towns a number of times on US 41/M-28, but that was 35 years and about 70 pounds ago. It really is not any easier on the rail trail.

Near Midway the trail separates from the original rail bed and goes alongside no longer using the earthen trestles and rock cuts. It gives the trail a bit more character and certainly some opportunities to coast. Most hills are short and not overly steep.

The return trip was much easier in that from Midway, I was able to coast into Marquette at twice the speed as my climb to the west.

The trail surface pavement was in excellent condition, the information plaques interesting, and the scenery varied from industrial sites to wetlands and wooded areas. The gravel surface was harder to ride in that the aggregate could have been finer and there were a few wash outs and loose gravel.

I would most certainly go again.

Marquette Multi-Use Path

Beautiful lakeshore ride

August, 2012 by lmeister906

This trail runs along Lake Superior, not Lake Huron as stated. You can access excellent restaurants and businesses in Marquette while biking along a smooth, well maintained paved trail. The trail can get a little busy at times.
