Summer is finally here and the buzz of friends’ and coworkers’ summer plans is in full swing. Sitting in your office you can’t help but think you need to get started planning a vacation too, and you’re right! Even if it’s for just a long weekend, you need to find time to enjoy the beautiful weather and spend time with loved ones. Itching to getaway, but also get in some exercise and time outdoors? We have the perfect summer bike package for you! Our package includes staying in our 1 Bedroom Classic Suite with breakfast, 2 vouchers for bike rentals AND 2 trail passes. Make the most of the bike season and experience the timeless Mesabi Trail which was named Best Rural Bike Trail in Minnesota by the Star Tribune.
The Mesabi Trail is a premier bicycle trail located between the cities of Grand Rapids and Biwabik, winding through some of the state’s prettiestregions. Stretching across the Iron Range and the Superior National Forest, there are approximately 115 miles of the complete paved trail. The trial is still being built up too! When completed there will be 132 miles of the trail from start to finish. The longest complete sections of the trail run from Grand Rapids to McKinley; then continuing on from Biwabik to HWY 135 past us here at Giants Ridge! Along the path there are many wonderful cities where you can stop and visit historical sites. Communities along the trail include Chisholm, Eveleth, Aurora and 25 more historic Iron Range spots.
This well-mapped and well-maintained trail was partially built on old railroad beds and old logging and mining roads. Visitors will find a 10-foot wide bituminous surface (asphalt paving) that’s great for summer activities –especially biking! Unlike most rail trails that are generally flat, the Mesabi Trail meanders and curves through forests, fields, streams and past the “great canyons of the north” for an amazing scenic adventure. Restaurants, lodging, shopping, antiquing, golfing, fishing, camping and swimming are all available nearby the trail if you want to venture out. Once completed, the Mesabi Trail will be one of the longest paved trails in the United States!
Interested in mountain biking? Mountain biking is open for the season on the cross country trail system! Climb 40km of maintained mountainside trails and experience Minnesota’s summer recreation at its finest.
