Iron County offers a beautiful newly constructed paved biking/hiking trail which starts in Mercer, WI and connects to the biking trail complex in Manitowish Waters, WI. Another trail in development is one from Hurley, WI which goes over the border connecting to Ironwood, MI and the Iron Belle Trail. There are also many mountain biking opportunities in the abundant public lands of Iron County and the Nearby Ottawa National Forest. Trails incorporate many of the country’s historic transportation, mining and lumbering sites, as well as, plenty of forests, lakes and waterfalls. Iron County's mountain bike trails also double as great hiking trails!
