I thought this for a while now, but I'm starting to be convinced. The Mesabi Trail is one of the biggest secrets in our area. Sure everybody knows about it, but where is everyone?
Not that I'm complaining but it does surprised me that I don't see many people out using the trail. Yesterday was the latest example, a perfect day for being out and in the 2.5 hours I spent on the trail I encountered 4 other bike riders and one jogger. That's it in a 40 mile ride.
For those of us waiting for the trail to be reopened between Hibbing and Chisholm, the latest information I have heard is by June 15th. I'll keep you posted if I hear otherwise.
So the next time your looking to get out and enjoy some recreation keep the Mesabi Trail in mind, it runs through just about every town in the Northland and has some fantastic views.
