Mesabi Mountain Trail
Four miles of narrow, winding trail follows the rocky ridges and outcroppings of the Laurentian Divide. Numerous rock obstacles of varying sizes offer climbing challenges throughout the trail. The more extreme obstacles have multiple ways through and around. Riders will find plenty of scenic overlooks where they can stop and take a break. Thirty-five-inch tires, lockers and a winch are recommended. Please travel with others! The trail is provided by the Eveleth-Gilbert Joint Powers Trail Board and maintained by the Northern Minnesota Jeepers.
Winter Use: Trail is open in for winter use for ORV users only. All parking lots are plowed, but the trail is ungroomed and has no vault toilets.
