For access to the Mesabi Trail™ from Hwy 135, turn south onto County Road 20. Parking is located one block to the south.
McKinley, located between Gilbert and Biwabik, is primarily a small residential community offering limited services, but nearby McKinley Lake offers recreational opportunities.
The defining features are the view and environment along the Mesabi Trail. Rural and rustic, natural woods on high rolling hills abound.
The Mesabi Trail™ has been funded in part by the LCCMR and the Minnesota Environmental and Natural Resources Trust Fund.
