Iron Belle Trail

99 Pleasure Drive, Belle Isle Park,
Detroit, MI 48207
Open Year-Round

The Iron Belle Trail is a 2,000-mile journey winding from Ironwood in the western Upper Peninsula to Belle Isle in Detroit. It crisscrosses more than half of Michigan’s counties along two distinct hiking and biking routes.

The biking route utilizes many of the state’s existing bike paths, bike lanes and designated biking routes as it travels up the east side of the state. The hiking route utilizes sidewalks, trails and the 1,000-mile plus North Country National Scenic Trail traveling up the west side of the Lower Peninsula.

The trail is still under development and is roughly 68 percent completed. When completed, it will be the longest state-designated trail in the nation.
