Nine miles of new trail is completed heading north out of Embarrass, dead ending at Hwy 26 in Kugler Township – leaving the trail about 5 miles short of Tower. This new addition gives us 24 miles of continuous trail from Biwabik to Kugler Township. Note on the way to Embarrass, when you pass over the 3/4 mile floating bridge you will encounter about 1/2 mile of gravel through the Darwin Meyers Wildlife Management Area…as a wildlife area this will never be paved. From the end of the gravel, you will have to take Palo Tia Road about 2 miles into Embarrass until that final chunk of trail is completed…slated to start soon.
The Mesabi Trail™ has been funded in part by the LCCMR and the Minnesota Environmental and Natural Resources Trust Fund.
